VENUE: WAZIRI UMAR FEDERAL POLYTECHNIC BIRNIN-KEBBI.
This second edition of the Youth Empowerment Program took place at the Waziri Umar Federal Polytechnic Birnin-Kebbi, Kebbi State. This edition was filled with enthusiasm from the participants.
Birnin- Kebbi is famous for the hosting the international Argungu Fishing Festival, Rice milling and spices. Visiting Kebbi was a great experience for the team as we paid homage to the Emir and also visited the famous Museum.
Kebbi youths taught us what it meant to enthusiastically embrace an opportunity. We came to train 200 and over 500 youths turned up. We were warned that they would only stay a day in class before quitting. Yet, our participants proved everyone wrong! They stayed from the beginning of the training till the last day of the event!
Kebbi Youths showed composure, dedication and passion for what they were learning. We were happy to be a part of their community.
