The 45 Final year students are into serious training and practice for the grading that leads to graduation. They are taken to places on excurtion to see where their type of skill/trade is practiced gainfully for income generating purposes. They are allowed to design , produce and exhibit for sales on any opportunity the Centre has to render services to any Community. Those who made sales in beads , tailoring and Welding are excited with the income they generated and are very eager to be in the instruction rooms for more and perfect products. They were given the opportunity to build with their stipend money and take the gains.The groups organised for after training settlement work closely for harmonious take off and transactions. Some parents reported in the last Parents/FOTD meeting of the good works and products their children/wards bring home to sell. some receive requests for products. We need funds to see them through as MTN Foundation that funded the first year are not forth coming for the second year.The group that stays by the road side to beg or are idle at home depending on others are now producers of what is needed and consumed in the Community for their social and economic integration.
