Over 25 members of the Ota community and environs has benefitted from Heal the World Movement’s three days empowerment program which came to an end on Wednesday.
The empowerment program which featured training in soap making, disinfectant, photography, etc gave rise to great excitement as participants were glad new knowledge was added to them.
Speaking to Heal the World Newsdesk, the convener of this program, Mrs Mimi Idaewor mentioned that participants of this empowerment project were quick to understand what they were taught following a hand-on experience during the practical sessions.
“The Empowerment started on Monday 7th June at about 11.00 am with an Opening Prayer by one of the participants. The first day was Tie and dye and then Photography which was taught by Miss Anesi Moyaki and Mr. Awe Olusanya respectively”.
According to her, the two Facilitators both taught for 1 day and the participants used the next day for their hands-on and almost all got their practicals well showcasing different designs as they were taught.
“Day two and three were for Chemical Production. This was handled by Mrs Omolara Lawrence. During this day, participants were taught how to produce Liquid Soap which can be used for different purposes, Izal, Insecticide, Body Spray and Air Freshener. In addition, the facilitator gave participants recipe for Hand Sanitizer which was not part of the products to be taught”.
The program which was supposed to last for four days ended on the third day. according to the convener, this was largely due to the fact that participants were quick to learn and understand the practicality of what was taught.
We took Photographs and shared the products that were produced during the Empowerment.
According to the convener, the next empowerment is scheduled to hold in August 2021. Mrs. Idaewor also said that intending participants for the next empowerment would learn skills such as how to make nutritious drinks like Blackcurrant drink, wheat drink, Tigernut drink, Kunnu, Beetroot drink, Ice cream, Fascinators and how to stone clothes.
