NDE equips 50 unemployed, vulnerable people in Karu

By Emma Elekwa

About 50 unemployed and vulnerable people are undergoing a 3-month intensive training under the second Community Based Training Scheme (CBTS) in the Vocational Skills Development department (VSD) of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) in the FCT.

The beneficiaries, drawn from Karu community in the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) of the FCT are being trained in some selected competitive demand-driven marketable skills including catering, photography, shoe making, interior decoration and GSM repairs.

Addressing the trainees, the acting Director General, National Directorate of Employment (NDE), Kunle Obayan, said the programme was targeted at reducing the level of unemployment, creating small scale enterprises, cottage industries and reducing rural urban migration and youth restiveness.

Obayan, who was represented by the FCT Coordinator, Lady Edna Ofordile, described the event as unique as it marks the beginning of a life time intervention in the existence of the lucky unemployed beneficiaries in view of their deficiency in basic skills, vulnerability and poor background.

He expressed satisfaction in the success of the first edition of the project carried out in Kuje Area Council last year, where a set of 50 people were trained and resettled with basic equipment and cash components to the tune of N50,000 each to commence their businesses.

“It is gratifying to note that the 50 beneficiaries are now small scale entrepreneurs employing at least one person on the average, thereby reducing the scourge of unemployment in that area council,” he added.
