In the last one year, no fewer than 55 Nigerian youths has benefitted immensely from the training empowerment program organized by NOVEL Nigeria. The training had technical and hands-on practical sessions on specialized courses including; Photography, Bag Making & Ankara Accessories, Event Decoration, Blog & Web Design, Cakes and Graphic Designing.
The training was to prepare them to contribute their quotas in moving the country to a higher level of development. The skills acquisition training was also to equip them on how to be self-reliant in a bid to build and nurture the young dexterous workforce in the society.
In August 2019, NOVEL Nigeria partnered with the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Development Studies, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife to certify seven youths who participated in the second edition of the training.
All the trainees were excited about the empowerment scheme and pledged to emerge as entrepreneurs, creating jobs for themselves and others. In concluding the training, NOVEL Nigeria promise to link the trainees to networks and opportunities that will help them in becoming viable entrepreneurs.
