L.I.F.E. training is a capacity building initiative that aims to transform underserved communities in Nigeria as a model intervention for other underserved communities. It provided students with practical trainings on ICT and entrepreneurship, with the aim of preparing the participants to be self-sufficient.
PIN’s Chief Operating Officer, Tope Ogundipe in her welcome remarks said “L.I.F.E. since inception in 2007 has expanded to other locations in Aba (#AbaLIFE), Abia state and more recently Kano. Our aim is to reach more youths living in under-served communities in Nigeria.”
In a speech issued by the Executive Director of PIN – ‘Gbenga Sesan, he said, “it is very important for each of our alumni to go forth and train others in order to foster a truly empowered community. A candle loses nothing by lighting up others.”
The program ended brilliantly with a musical performance by #AjegunleLIFE 2015c students. It featured melodious singing, and powerful raps.
