Challenge

The Key challenge in the community is unemployment which is confronting teenage mothers and other young women due to the breakdown of the fishing industry about 20 years ago as aresult of the destruction of landing site by sea erosion. There is no employable skills training platform and lack of set-up capitals. The initiative of the project seek to create a conducive permanent employable skills training centre that will provide relevant skills training program.

Solution

This project initiative will lead to direct and indirect creation of jobs and purchasing power will increase in the community. With increasing disposable income, the community's local economy will become vibrant and poverty will be reduced. Also, when these teenage mothers are trained and they begin to establish Sustainable business enterprises which will bring them income, they would no longer become vulnerable to men and this will reduce teenage pregnancy and teenage motherhood.

Long-Term Impact

In the long run, this initiative will position the local private sector to become vibrant and the lost glory of the formal fishing industry would have been restored and the form of this young women who would have become fish mongers now emerging as prosporous dressmakers,hairdressers and beauticians as well as caterers who are producing competitive goods and services and this will bring in improved income.
