The Progrss of the fifty new student

In September 2011 a set of 50 (fifty) new students were admitted to train in different skills till August 2013. All have shown strong passion for learning. What one can practically see coupled with reports from their teachers,Monitoring and Evaluation Officer show that some can produce standard materials that can compete favorably in the market. We expect that in the next six months most of them would be perfect while others meet market standard production.Pictures from some sections are included.

We remain grateful for the encouragement given to us through donations.We would continue this transformation and integration of people with disabilities into the main stream of the society. We have embarked on discussions with other Organizations and Companies that can attract jobs after training. Our students went on excursion to Covenant University Ogun State Nigeria to show case their products and for sight seeing and socialization to justify,"All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy".

The plan for their attachment to artisans in the Community is concluded. They will be posted to crafts men of their skill types as quickly as they start their second and final year in October/November 2012.
