The Jewel Empowerment Foundation Skill Acquisition Program (JEFSAP) tagged “Off The Street” was held at Onigbongbo Town Hall, Maryland, Lagos State.
This project is in alignment with the short film “Road To Ruin”; an advocacy film against child labour. In other to effectively get children hawking off the street and have them focus on education, unemployed parents/ young adults(drop out) have to be trained to acquire at least a skill to make them financially independent.
About 36 Participants were trained for FREE on four skills which are Baking and Confectionery, Bead Making, Make-up Artistry, Graphics and Web design. The foundation empowered some exceptional participants to start up their businesses.
We want to appreciate the Oba of Onigbongbo, Maryland, MTN Foundation and everyone for their support in making this project a reality. We intend to do this often and we believe with your continuous support, the foundation will help to get children back to school, eradicate poverty and continue to empower the less privileged
