My Journey

Ifeyinwa Ezeagu
Posted September 20, 2016 from Nigeria

Hi Everyone, I'm Ezeagu Evelyn Ifeyinwa, from Abuja, Nigeria. I was born and partially brought up by my poor parents. I'm the 5th child of the family. We are 8 in number, 6 boys and 2 girls. My parents are hale and hearty, residing in our home town, Achina, Aguata L.G.A, Anambra State, Nigeria.

The big problem we are facing at the moment, is structuring of our organisation. We are working to reduce unemployment among women and youths. We have formed partnerships with National Directorate of Employment (NDE), SMEDAN and National Youth Service Corp (NYSC).

I would like to engage fresh graduates, especially women more, there's know white collar job out there. I need them to be trained and engaged meaningfully, this will reduce the rate of social vices exhibited by young women who are idle.

We need mentorship and funding to be able to continue successfully.

Hello Ezeagu Evelyn - 

Greetings from Canada to Nigeria! Your mission to create jobs for women and youths through vocational training is an ambitious project and I can tell that your passion will continue to make an impact.  Bravo for already having trained over 1500 women and youths at Phelyn Skill Acquisition Center (PSAC). That is a huge number because of your work and the work of your colleagues. Looking forward to hearing more about your projects and successes. Keep writing!
