Provide Skills and Jobs to 425 Disabled in Nigeria

by Friends of the Disabled
Oct 26, 2012


The 50 (fifty) students are on the final phase of their training with us in different skills.They would start their Industrial attachment in November 2012. More than 80% of them can produce to market standards from  raw materials. We have started discussions with their parents and relations about shops/shades to rehabilitate their tools and equipments for business  with their skills. We hope MTN Foundation would be positive to our appeal and come to our aid to procure the equipment and tools.

Our Agric section needs expansion but are constrained by lack of funds.  Three youths are employed there now and we have a target of fifty tanks to employ between twelve-thirteen youths with hearing and speech impairment.Our boys are trained by Institute of Oceanography and Marine Research, Victoria Island, Lagos. We rear and breed Catfish and hope to include smooking when the time comes.

We remain grateful to our benefactors and promise to give value to their donations by executing this project judiciously.
