Foundation empowers youths on skills aquisition

The Winning Women Empowerment Foundation, which is the women’s arm of House of Praise Christian Center, says it is supporting about 50 young men and women to acquire employable skills variously in catering, baking, events decoration, soap-making, and more.

The convener of the event, Pastor (Mrs) Bawo Onabanjo, notes that the Foundation started 15 years ago and has been training and empowering youths, especially women, in various skills.

Mrs Onabanjo highlighted that, all the facilitators she contacted for the program were professionals in their respective fields and were happy to be there because they actually came to give back to the society.

“God identified women as home builders, that’s why the Bible says, ‘A wise woman builds her home while the foolish one tears it down’. So, I believe in empowering the women because I know they will empower many more if given the chance and resources.

“And this training does not stop here, we have a WhatsApp group created for this project so that we keep in contact with all the participants, to mentor them and make sure the skill they have gotten is in good use.”

The facilitators on catering said she partnered with the organization to empower the youths so as to help them out of idleness and frustration. She said she was at there to train the participants on different types of dishes both local and continental.

Adesanya Oluwashola, the facilitator on event management and decorations, says she is not only training them on the skill to decorate but also the business aspect of it so that they will be able to make money with what they have learned.

A participant at the program, Akiwe Chinasa, who participated in Event Management and Decorations Skills, said she didn’t know the event was going to be so impactful but after the first day with the motivational speakers and the event proper, she had not only learned how to decorate and plan events, she had also learned how to network with people of the same interest and how to get clients.
