The equipment and tools supplied by National Directorate of Employment and Ministry of Women Affairs were given to graduants in groups to allow for Team work and security of tools. Incedentally MTN Foundation were not ready with what they intend to add to the graduants that time.

Arrangement is on the way to give them tools and equipment by MTNF to support the efforts of others and to give enough for easier work.We could not continue with the idea of Getting shop for them for at least one year due to lack of resources.Because we worked with their Parents and relatives who know what our objectives are, we asked them to procure the shops/convenient places to work in with the tools provided. We are not very comfortable with this and hope to improve on this with the settlement of the present students.

We make frantic efforts to monitor what they do and how it is serving  the purpose of training.

* Six of them are our employees now in Welding, fish farm and tailoring. 

* Sunday Ohagudo from the Eastern Zone of Nigeria got settled last month in a Primary school to teach Sign Language to  Club members of children that hear and speak in addition to sewing their school uniform because he graduated from tailoring section. Learning Sign language  is compulsory in our Centre during training because most of our students are hearing and speech impaired.We have discovered that those in tailoring section who hear and talk and can sign, have double advantageof being settled in school  with sign language and sewing school uniforms.

* Sunday Chidinma Williams graduated  maily from our Education section with minor interst in shoe making and welding. He sat for GCE in December 2011 and made a total of seven Credits including English, Maths and Biology.

He now works with St. John's Ambulance in Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idiaraba Lagos State.He joined FOTD in 2006 from JSS One.

Mr. Wasiu Arioye has settled with a Turkey farm in Offa, Kwara State Nigeria.

We made a promise of involing them in trade and product exhibitions to help them sell thir products monitoring  them is very necessary.
