Steemit helping hands 3 days vocational training modified and extended to 7 days

in #fundition-g9r9rwt7u6 years ago (edited)

Few weeks ago Steemit helping hands proposed an Empowerment program to Steemit community, this program was proposed to empower teenagers at an orphanage, to teach them the basic rules of entrepreneurship, self empowerment, crafts and skills, to enable them, live a self sufficient life and as well offer them a career path in future, in and out of the orphanage.


These plans where jeopardized as the orphanage welcomed us on the day for the event with change of time, duration and new policies.

The orphanage management said we had just 4hours to complete a project that was meant to last for 3 days and also we had new rules not to take pictures or videos.

Due to the new rules which was against the mode of operation of Steemit helping hands, and also, 4 hours which was impossible for us to achieve our goals, we had to cancel the initial plans, to make new ones.

Why did it take us so long?

On our agenda the next project after the orphanage program was our partnership with @steemcamp to complete some pet projects that took place during the 7 days camping, which was a success.

Steemit helping hands was in warri delta state for 8 days, further planning for the empowerment program began after our arrival to Lagos.

Secondly steemhelpinghands had to wait till the end of schools term to gain full attention of the teenagers in order not to clash with school activities or jeopardize their concentration

What's New??

Steemit helping hands strikes a partnership deal with OMOGE INITIATIVE a girls foundation that empowers teenage girls on the streets and create a career path for them.

There is an evolution

Yes!!! The 3 days planned project is now modified and extended to 7 days vocational training which will be taken to the streets, impacting and giving teenagers/youths the opportunity to get involved in skill acquisitions, consisting of the following trainings:

  • catering
  • shoe making
  • bagmaking
  • graphic designing
  • photography
  • toilet wash making
  • bleach making
  • soap making

The acquisition program is scheduled to begin on 6th of august 2018 and end on 11th of august 2018.
