200 physically-challenged persons benefit from NGO vocational training

An Enugu based Non-Gov­ernmental Organisation (NGO), Bina Founda­tion, has enrolled over 200 phys­ically challenged persons to un­dergo free skill acquisition and vocational training for its 2017 study year.
The students, who were giv­ing orientation into the various departments available at the skill acquisition and vocational centre at the weekend, are to choose be­tween basic computer literacy for the blind and visually impaired, Braille reading and writing, beads and wire works, tailoring/fashion designing/knitting, cos­metology, paint making, beauty salon, among others.
Addressing the new students, the President/Founder of the or­ganisation, Pharmacist Lady If­eoma Atuegwu stressed that their mission stems from the passion to give hope to the disabled in conquering their disability and fending for themselves, instead of taking to street begging.
She said: “To the new students that are here today, I have good news for you and your families. All our training programmes are offered free of charge. The foun­dation will give you the best of at­tention and assistance to succeed in life. Displayed on the arena are products made by our past stu­dents. These and more are what you will be trained to produce in the course of your studies.”
On his part, the Special Advis­er to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, on Youth Affairs, Dr Emeka Asogwa, commended the vision of Sir Chris Atuegwu and Lady Ifeoma Atuegwu in es­tablishing the Foundation.
