The Federal Government has launched a three-day Entrepreneurial Skills Development Program for 42 Persons Living with Disabilities (PWDs) across the seven northwestern states to improve their economic empowerment and livelihoods.

States include: Kano, Kaduna, Katsina, Kebbi, Jigawa, Sokoto and Zamfara.

The training exercise was initiated by the Federal Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.

Humanitarian Affairs Minister Hajiya Sadiya Umar-Farouk said so during the inauguration of the exercise on Wednesday in Kano.

She said six participants from each of the seven states in the region would each receive N100,000 as start-up capital.

Umar-Farouq said eliminating all forms of discrimination and violence against people with disabilities and empowering them economically through vocational training would go a long way in paving the way for them to achieve their full potential.

The minister represented by Nkechi Nwukwe, the ministry’s director of special needs, said the government is aware of the importance of disability as a development issue.

“Entrepreneurial skills offer new opportunities for everyone, but these opportunities are particularly important for people with disabilities, especially with an already high level of poverty among people with disabilities in Nigeria and its consequences.

“Our gathering here today is for us to explore greater possibilities in our collective quest to address the challenges facing the advancement of persons with disabilities for sustainable national development.

“I understand that livelihood interventions are key to addressing economic challenges and therefore the administration’s current target of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty by 2029 cannot be achieved without the full involvement of people with disabilities,” she said.

She revealed that attendees would be exposed to modern techniques in fish farming, phone repair and cosmetics production.

The Minister urged the beneficiaries to be active in facing the challenges of disability with determination, courage and confidence.

“I therefore want to encourage participants to be active, lively and to firmly face the challenges of disability with determination, courage and confidence.

“I implore you to maximize the opportunities of this workshop to improve your livelihoods and also contribute your quotas to nation building,” she said.

In his address, the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Dr. Nasir Gwarzo, said the workshop was designed to expose participants to entrepreneurial skills that would empower them.

Represented by Garba Magaji, the permanent secretary said the federal government has prioritized the care and development of vulnerable people, especially people with disabilities in the country.

According to him, the training exercise, the third in its series, will be implemented in the six geopolitical zones, to address some of the challenges faced by persons with disabilities.

“It will address issues of inclusion among people with disabilities, particularly in relation to income-generating activities, equipping them with the necessary skills to ensure sustainable livelihoods and developing their entrepreneurial skills to be competitive in the business environment,” he said.

Earlier, Dr. Zara’u Muhammad, Kano State Commissioner for Women’s Affairs and Social Development, said the state government will continue to adopt proactive measures to improve support services for people with disabilities. .

While welcoming the gesture, Muhammad reiterated the government’s commitment to empowering and supporting people living with disabilities in the state.

One of the participants, Malam Ali Idi, welcomed the gesture, adding that it would empower them.

High school students will be able to develop their entrepreneurial skills at the Sci-Bono Discovery Center.

Sharon Seretlo, Gallo Images

  • The Sci-Bono Discovery Center will allow more than 1,000 high school students to develop their entrepreneurial skills.
  • The organization will do this through an entrepreneurship multi-certification program.
  • The program will be offered in 18 schools across the province.

More than 1,000 high school students in Gauteng have had the opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial skills through the addition of a multiple certification program in entrepreneurship as an extramural course.

The program is managed by the Sci-Bono Discovery Center in Newtown, Johannesburg. It will reach 1,230 students in grades 8 to 11 in 18 schools, and another 100 students remotely.

Anele Davids, Acting Director of Operations at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre, said:

Many young people do not see themselves as entrepreneurs, although they earn pocket money, for example by sewing, repairing cars and braiding their friends’ hair.

“However, these are the seeds of businesses that can grow well, prosper, provide income to their founders and create jobs. The Integrated Entrepreneurship Program aims to transform budding entrepreneurs into the business leaders of tomorrow. Davids added.

As part of the program, students will receive hands-on experience in running their mini-businesses, financial knowledge, and job skills training.

“In the first phase of the Integrated Entrepreneurship Program, participants learn how to set savings goals, develop a bankable business plan, apply for grants, and start their business (including the essentials, such as such as business registration, tax compliance, and filing stewardship reports). They learn about financial transactions, investments, and budgeting,” the Sci-Bono Discovery Center said in a statement.

Davids stressed the importance for young people to see themselves as entrepreneurs and job creators rather than job seekers.

“We see these young people everywhere, in all of our communities: young people with latent potential who simply need formal entrepreneurial guidance to turn their talents and interests into a thriving business,” Davids said.

The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Sambalpur has signed an agreement with a research institute to develop the entrepreneurial skills of tribal youths and provide them with quality education.

The MoU with Adivasi Research and Development Center was signed recently for multi-modal initiatives and projects on education, skills, training and global outreach, IIM Sambalpur said in a statement.

The director of IIM Sambalpur, Mahadeo Jaiswal, described the tribal handicrafts of Odisha as impressive. Artisans and tribal artisans could earn a good income, but they lack entrepreneurial skills and a good market for their products, Jaiswal said.

“With the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding, IIM will now endeavor to develop entrepreneurial skills among tribal youths and work to build their capacity,” he said.
Efforts will be made to provide equal space and opportunities by linking them to the global market so that the exquisite tribal handicrafts can fetch a good competitive price, the official said.

The institute will also strive to provide a good market for agricultural products, which are in high demand, but the tribals are not getting a proper price for their products due to lack of proper initiative, according to the director.

The B-School will also try to train the next generation of tribal children for quality education. “Although there are reservations in educational institutions, one will not find many tribal students in higher education institutions.

“We will work on how more and more tribal students will go for higher education in good institutions,” Jaiswal said.
