A Wide stride for further achievement.

We have succeeded in our negotiation to Patner with MTN Foundation to train 45 disadvantaged youths from the spresd of six Geopolitical Zones in Nigeria. The prject took off on the 1 st. of June 2009 when the Agreement was signed.MTN is the largest Telecommunication in Nigeria helping to reach out to the world. All our training machines that are not functioning are to be replaced and focus skills areas are in Welding, Tailoring and fashion design, Shoe making. Information Technology, Poultry and Fishery are included in the training for knowledge and sustainability of the project as a whole. NAFDAC, the Food and Drug packaging regulator has taken our water for final anlysis for us to get Identity to proceed packaging for sales. Each student is to receive N8,000 ( eight thousand Naira only) as the training goes on. The students could not hide their feelings and have expressed in many ways their joy to be selected for the training." I will have my own shop?. " Am lucky" These are some of their expressions as they were told that they would be helped to settle in a business when they finish. We are grateful to Globalgiving and their supporters who are also our Donors for taking us this far. We will not disappoint you. Thanks a lot. Let us know what you will like to ask about us. Thanks again.
