Five hundred young people in the Offa Local Government Area of ​​Kwara State have benefited from free vocational skills training to help them become financially independent and self-sufficient.

Some of the training skills enjoyed included computers, baking and decorations, making soap and air fresheners, designing facial makeup, making pillows and quilts.

During the training program in Offa last weekend, Hajiya Farida Musa-Jauro, founder of a non-governmental organization, Free Light of Nigerian Youth Foundation (FLONY), which provided the gesture, said the foundation is committed to contributing to the national and regional efforts to tackle poverty.

The founder said the organization’s goal was to help orphans, illiterates and children to minimize poverty and prevent actions that threaten peace in the country.

“We have started and will continue to mobilize private and public sector interventions through advocacy and encourage young people to voluntarily devote their intellectual and physical energy to solving problems in society.
