We are almost there

The training to give skills and jobs to 425 disabled in Nigeria is yeilding dividend and we are seeing the end of the tunnel.At the end of the target project, the training continues for it is a continous process so long as there are disabled youths still roaming the streets for livelihood.Those we trained are recruiting others for training in the Centre and those trained in Computer are being employed by other business Centres. The capacity of the Centre is being enhanced by the aquisition of new machines and equipment to replace the aged ones. There is a recruitment exercise now to train another barge of forty five disabled with the promise to give them equipment and tools at the end of their training. The satchet water production will also aid us to do that amist other helps. The borehole for the satchet water now provides water to the Centre and so the students have no need to go out for drinking water. In a couple of months, the packaging will take off when NAFDAC must have given us number. We are working to make up the requirement of the Nation's food processing demand before we take off. We are grateful for the support of Globalgiving to showcase our project and more grateful to our donors who have sustained us this far. we are ready to go on and to bring the desired change with further support.
