Our income generating /job creation activities are also essential aspect of our training and empowerment. Those students who are agric friendly are being trained in poultry and fish farm.Some of the students are employed back into the Centre to manage these Agric Section and make a living from them. We partner in Fish Farm with Nigerian Institute of Oceanography and Marine Research, Lagos Nigeria. A  total of six persons ( three in each unit) are into this venture and all but one  are persons with disabilities. We have enough space for expansion of fish farm if funds are available.  The expansion can create jobs and business to twenty(20) disadvantaged youths going by the space we have in the Centre. Cart fish is in demand in the Community and It takes four months to breed. We are searching for a whole sale market for our poultry. We are grateful to our supporters and funders and ask for their comments that can spur us to better actions.
