About 95 unemployed people who have acquired skills in makeup, barking and soap making are set to graduate from the second skill acquisition programme sponsored by Folorunso Adisa Initiative Welfare Foundation on August 21 in Iseyin.
The Foundation was established to cater for youths from Iseyin Local Government that have been taken through tutelage in various skills and will be given required facilities to be independent and contribute to the society.
The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the foundation, Princess Folohunso Omolara, said the first graduation ceremony saw 230 beneficiaries graduated with skills in tailoring, baking, hair dressing, makeup, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), among others.
She added that the Foundation has 100 widows and widowers as well as orphans, less-privileged pupils and students on scholarship under its coverage.
Her words: “We are working on making the 2021 graduation ceremony another success like the last one we had.
“I am happy to tell you that those that graduated then are now self-dependent, they are today contributing to the economy of our town.
