Youth and women’s empowerment programme.
Over the years, the Daughters of the Holy Spirit have been involved in the empowerment of youth and women, through education and social work, to raise the dignity of the human person in the rural areas where they are present, by organizing workshops and seminars.
Today, the Covid-19 is shaking up the world, causing the unemployment rate of young people and women to rise.
In Nigeria, the situation of young people aged 15 to 35 (70 % of the population) is becoming worrying. We would like to launch a programme based on workshops to contribute to the training of some young people in rural areas where we are called on mission to enable them to become aware of their potential.
This will enable them to transform their good ideas and energy into positive development and the recognition of the dignity of work. At the end of this training, they will be able to develop themselves and become leaders, the transformers of tomorrow.
