In January 2019, a new project was birthed under our entrepreneurial development unit to help train people who are interested in going into small and medium scale craft making.
The aim is to enable them become self-sustainable especially as the unemployment figures in Nigeria shows a good number of young adults are out of work and currently lack the requisite skills required to venture into entrepreneurship.
This project will help bridge the skills gap by providing attendees with the right skills needed to become self-sustaining and also teaching them business management skills essential to managing a small and medium scale business.
The leather industry is an industry with huge potentials in most countries of the world and Nigeria is no exception with the availability of locally sourced raw materials.
It has the potential to be a major foreign exchange earner when fully harnessed and it will require adequate training for the practitioners to harness the potential of the leather industry.
There are various segments in the industry with the under-listed being our current focus.
