A non-governmental organization, The Good Samaritan Foundation, has unveiled its vocational training plan for young people in Loburo, Ogun State.

Ademilua, in a meeting with community leaders and Nigeria’s High Commissioner to the UK, Sarafa Isola, said the NGO was committed to supporting people living in poverty and focused on people affected by conflict-induced crises.

She said, “The project, which will fully kick off from March 2022 with its largest site in Loburo village in Ogun State, will help young people learn valuable life skills, train and find a job now and in the future. The project will also serve as a general area of ​​human capital development and empowerment for the many unemployed young people in the village of Loburo.

“High unemployment coupled with the country’s pressing drug addiction problems has led many young people into a life of crime that is currently degrading national values ​​and wreaking havoc on society.”

“The project as proposed to the Ambassador aims to promote and enhance the personal, social and psychological development of young people to enable them to realize their potential on their journey to adulthood.”

Isola pledged to support TGSF’s efforts in developing the proposed vocational training center in the community.

“My office will support the acquisition of proper documentation for the proposed property for the vocational center development which is delayed and still in process with the Ogun State Land Department since 2018,” he said. he declared.
