We birthed a new project in January 2019 under our entrepreneurial development unit. We created the project to help train interested persons to go into small and medium scale craft making.
The project aims to enable participants become self-sustainable. The unemployment figures in Nigeria shows a good number of young adults are out of work. Furthermore, most of them currently lack the requisite skills required to venture into entrepreneurship. It is necessary for a young peron to get a skill set.
This project will help bridge the skills gap by providing attendees with the right skills needed to become self-sustaining. It will also teach them business management skills. As a result of this, they will have developed essential skills to manage their small and medium scale business.
The leather industry is an industry with huge potentials in most countries of the world. Nigeria has an abundance of locally resources for leather works. Due to this, Nigeria is capable of becoming a major exporter of leather products.
It has the potential to be a major source of foreign exchange when fully harnessed. Thus, we need adequate training to harness the potential of the leather industry delivered by experts.
There are various segments in the leather industry. Our focus are on these:
- Footwear and footwear components
Fabrics used include batiks, recycled African prints, satin, used clothes etc. Theyare beneficial in design various works. A few of the products are the reusable sanitary pads for women and girls, tote bags, school bags and different shoe patterns.
