Ofuobi Vocational Training Center, Uwani Enugu:
OFUOBI Women of Enugu State Washington DC Inc. has launched the OWES Inc. Vocational Training Center in Enugu.
Partnership With Nazareth House Skills Center:
OFUOBI Women of Enugu State Washington DC Inc. has taken the strategic decision to partner with Nazareth Skills and Vocational Training Centre, Enugu in order to support it as a vocational training centre for young girls and to enable its accreditation and affiliation with a degree awarding institution.
The Center offers courses in catering, sewing, hotel management, arts and crafts, tie and dye, cosmetology, hairdressing, general secretarial studies, computer studies, etc. Most of the Center's students are from very poor families in Enugu State who can barely afford the nominal fees.
Some have to walk/trek miles from their hometowns every day to attend classes at the Centre, simply because they cannot afford bus fare to and from the Enugu location of the school.
One of the many requests from the Principal of the School Rev. Sister Cecilia Eze, was for the OFUOBI Women to provide a form of transportation to the school, which will enable her transport students to and from the skill center.
