The free skills acquisition 3.0 program was a huge success!
In an effort to empower individuals with valuable skills, the Supportive Pillar Foundation offered a two-week free skills acquisition program which provided a wide range of courses.
Just like the 2nd edition, participants had the opportunity to explore their interests and develop practical skills in areas such as:
- Make-up & Gele
- Pastries & Catering
- Shoe making
- Soap making
- Fascinator Design
- Event & Decoration
- Digital Marketing
The free skills acquisition program kicked off with great enthusiasm as individuals from different backgrounds enrolled. The programme aimed to provide a comprehensive learning experience, catering to the diverse interests of the participants. The facilitators, with their expertise and passion, created an engaging and supportive learning environment.
Throughout the training, participants were impacted with knowledge and practical skills that they could apply in their chosen fields. The skill acquisition programme not only equipped them with technical skills but also instilled confidence and a sense of empowerment.
Participants expressed their intentions to utilize the skills acquired to pursue careers, start their businesses, or contribute to their communities.
Despite the challenges posed by the Nigerian economy, the opportunity to learn for free was greatly appreciated by the participants. One participant, in particular, inspired everyone with her determination and resilience. Despite being visually impaired, she attended the training and excelled in her chosen course, becoming a symbol of strength and perseverance.
During the graduation ceremony, an exhibition showcased the impressive work of the participants across the various courses. The diversity of skills on display was a testament to the program’s success. The fascinator class was recognized for their outstanding behavior and received a well-deserved prize.
Additionally, three students from each class were selected to attend a master class, further enhancing their skills.
The culmination of the programme was marked by a grand graduation ceremony.
