With unemployment remaining a significant challenge in our society, the need for practical solutions has never been more urgent.

Students are learning skills such as Barbing, Frame Marking, Tailoring, Hairdressing, Makeup, Graphic Design, Photography, Nail Artistry, and more.

The initiative provides a flexible learning schedule, accommodating students’ lecture-free hours and weekends. Courses range from three months to one year, ensuring participants gain comprehensive knowledge and proficiency in their chosen fields.

Dr. Charles Adeniranye and Comrade Omosebi Oluwatobi commend Dakiz Human Development and Empowerment Initiative for its proactive approach to addressing unemployment. They emphasize the importance of vocational and technical skills in equipping youths with the tools they need to succeed in today’s competitive job market.

The Federal Government, through initiatives like NYSC (S.A.E.D) and higher institutions’ Entrepreneurship Directorates, also recognizes the significance of vocational training in empowering the youth and driving economic growth.

Dakiz Human Development and Empowerment Initiative’s efforts align with the government’s vision of building a skilled workforce and reducing unemployment rates. By investing in vocational and technical education, the initiative is not only transforming lives but also contributing to the overall development of the nation.
