Hi Everyone,

This is Ifeyinwa from Phelyn Skill. I want to share an update about our Digital Literacy for women which has been on since 6th of August. Yesterday was the 3rd weekend. I once share that the program is been attended by workers from Federal Ministry Services, and as such, the program always take place every Saturday.

We are experiencing new new people joining the the program every weekend. As they joined, we try to set up their profiles and get them connected to this platform. We had 5 new members yesterday, some was able to connect before our internet connectivity problem started. yesterday was so exciting because the Trainees were worked through setting up their business fliers, they were so colourful. All will be uploaded next saturday as we couldn't connect to the internet yesterday. Please, watch out for the new members, its getting more interesting by the day.

This program has been made made by PHELYN SKILL ACQUiSITION CENTER (PSAC) as its own contribution in giving back after receiving Intel Master training in June. All my Team members are always on ground to help make the training a success. They always make snacks with chilled water for refreshments. Here are some pictures from the training venue, Thanks.

Yeah! It has been an interesting session with phelyn. The instructor has been doing well with their methods of guiding and impacting knowledge.Also, thanks for the refreshments!! I hope we the " trainee" should be able to transfer the skills to other women. I'm very anxious to learn, acquire skills, utilise and transfer to others.

Well-done PSAC

This is amazing! It is so important that we continue to support digital literacy for women! Here in America I can not imagine how we would run a business without it right now.

Thanks for that valuable comment Pynk. It's very important for women to get connected because it will help their businesses and life generally.

We at Phelyn Skill has accepted Digital Literacy as one of the skills to be impacted to our trainees, it has so much potential to boost their businesses.

Thanks once again.

Hi Ifeyinwa,

Thanks so much Tam. Those beautiful ladies are preparing themselves for retirement from civil service. You can see, they are quite young, and wouldn't like to retire from service and stay idle, their Ministry deemed it fit to start exposing and engaging them on skills they can embark on after retirement.

They learnt confectioneries from us in June, by then I've just acquired this skill. I promised them, that I will call them back and transfer this knowledge on to them, as it will also help them in their businesses.

PSAC mission is to create jobs for women, youths and the less privilege through practical vocational training and empowerment.

We have trained over 700 women and youths in various vocational skills at our office, and most of them are doing very well. We have also trained over 1000 women across 17 states in Nigeria. We hope to do more.

Thanks once again Tam.
