Thank you so much for helping to fund ChildVoice’s vocational training programs for Boko Haram victims and other war-affected youth in Nigeria. We are thrilled to report that we’re now 80 percent of the way to our funding goal!
In the past quarter, our Nigeria team continued to finalize plans for the new Youth Empowerment Center at the Malkohi internally displaced persons (IDP) camp, which will enable them to expand and enhance the skills training offerings they are currently providing to traumatized Nigerian adolescents. We are also in the process of drilling a borehole (water well) to serve the new center. A reliable water source is crucial for students to enjoy skills training programs ranging from agriculture to bakery.
In our last Report, we mentioned that we have a new boys’ program underway, and boys were learning basic electrical skills. We have now acquired a small plot of farmland for our new boys’ agricultural program, and our students have already planted corn! Vocational skills training sessions for adolescent girls continue in other areas as we search for a second plot of land for the girls’ farm program.
Again, thank you for being a force for good in the lives of displaced Nigerian youth. You make change happen!
