The Nigeria Ministers Project (NMP), is planning to train about two hundred unemployed and Unskilled Anambra youths at the 2nd Edition of the Skills Acquisition and Empowerment for Youths and Unskilled people with the Theme: Higher, Greater Success.
The 7-day training, which will take place at the Refocusing Centre, Cornerstone House, Osy Idaboh’s Compound, Akah Etiti Village, Umuoji, Anambra State from Monday, 24th May, 2021, will also witness empowerment of about ten of the trained youths.
Skills to be learned include; making of footwears, bags, headgears , facinators and scarifinations.
Founder and President of NMP, Chief Apostle Fidel Chimezie said the exercise becomes necessary for the people of God to experience his raw power, miracles and Divine visitation at the Nigeria’s Ministers Project.
She said that the spirit of God opened her eyes to see the needs of the youths in the environment, who wander around hopelessly, engaging in negative activities, without guidance. So, with the great burden towards them, the Nigeria’s Ministers Project was moved to call them together for the purpose of improving their lives.
Chimezie, who is also founder of Apostolic Discipleship Project, informed that NMP is targeting to spend money in the training, which includes the tutorial, practical and materials for the seven days and therefore need sponsorship to meet up with you the financial obligations of the exercise. “We are doing shoes and bags for women and men, and all sorts of head gears. All these will cost us huge sum of money.”
She explained that the choice of Umuoji community in Anambra State, her native land, is to touch lives of the people and give them sense of belonging. “Charity, they say, begins from home, I want to make a positive impact on the lives of people of Umuoji, especially, the unemployed and unskilled ones.It was open doors to other communities around. It is indeed urban development strategy for rural and urban improvement for youths unskilled young adults.”
According to Chimezie, the core values of this is to equip those with skillful talents for gainful employment or to become their own bosses, employing others in due course . “We are creating avenues where unemployment market will be reduced among our youths.”
She called on the government, organizations, families and individuals to partner with her organization by sponsoring some of the projects to help the youths, the crown of tomorrow to be gainfully employed today. ” If the youths are really expected to be leaders of tomorrow, they need to be fully engaged today. They need to be empowered to be able to face the challenges ahead. But, if we abandon them today, we do not expect miracles tomorrow. That is why we deem it feat to focus attention towards that direction.”
