Oct 11, 2006

Trainng and Job Creation for 425 disabled in Nigeria.

We have started a Small Scale Business Centre in the Obowo Local Government of Imo State. Direct beneficiaries:10. Indirect beneficiaries; 100. It will train 200 persons.

This is the first time income generating activities have been set up for disabled in the area. People are not only happy but are surprised that they can live on their handiwork and not begging. We are constrained by finances to provide other things needed there. We want to reach other Local Govt. Areas in the Esst. We held a workshop for 100 trainees in Lagos on, "The business of the skill learnt" Pictures are enclosed.Others will follow.
