On the 12th, February 2018, Our Executive Director & Team Lead, MrJimoh Oluwatobi Segun was in Lagos state, Nigeria to represent us at a 3 days skill acquisition program which was hosted by Onebarigawoman under the auspice of Knowledge Aid Initiative – an NGO that focus on empowering women and girls in marginalized And vulnerable communities In Nigeria.
The training which took place at the Bariga local council empowered over 500women on different vocation skills such as – Catering, BeadMaking, Makeup, Gele, Ankara craft and lots more.
At the end of the training, the attendees were happy because they were empowered with a GREAT result to show forth.
Knowledge Aid Initiative believes teaching girls and women vocation skills is very important. As by having vocational and life skills, women and girls gain the self-confidence and skills needed to become agents of social change in their own lives and the communities where they live.
Mr Jimoh spoke with The Founder & Executive Director of the organization, Mrs. Success Ojo to discuss more on the way forward on women empowerment. She is our guest on the next episode of theNGOpodcast Show. Listen here
