True Foundation for Africa, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), has pledged to empower more vulnerable Nigerians nationwide, especially youths and women, with skills acquisition to enable them to become self-reliant.

The founder of the organisation, Ms. Onose-Brenda Ataga, made the promise while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Saturday.

She spoke with NAN at the closing session of the foundation’s six-day vocational training for indigenous people of Byazhin Kubwa Zone 3, Abuja.

NAN reports that the participants were trained in baking, barbering, and makeup during the event, which started on May 13.

Ataga explained that the vision was to fundamentally change the narrative of unemployment and promote local economic production for the country’s benefit.

She expressed the foundation’s determination to equip indigenous people with easily learnable skills, enabling each family to fend for itself.

She noted that each training delegate would receive a business starter pack to immediately apply what they had learned.

Ataga promised that the Foundation would continue to contribute to youth and community development.

NAN reports that True Foundation for Africa is a non-profit organisation committed to empowering underserved youths and women-led families by providing free skills acquisition training.

Founded in 2010, it has reached out to over 4,000 families and conducted over 30 sessions of vocational training nationwide.

As part of its annual activities, True Foundation has commenced its 2024 free vocational training programme.

The first cohort of this programme began with the indigenous people of Byazhin, Kubwa Zone 3, Abuja.
