In its bid to complement the activities of government towards community development services as one of the major goals of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), a team of corps members at Lagos State Polytechnic undertook a week-long training programme on diverse skills acquisition and poverty alleviation, such as bead making, bag making, baking, hair dressing, basics of fashion designing and artwork at Divine Heritage Home, Ijede between February 20 and 24.

The team leader, Abimbola Oladotun, said they were able to train over 60 participants in the programme, which was sponsored by staffs of the polytechnic.

She said the main objective of the programme was to ensure that the less-privileged in society have the opportunity to acquire basic skills for self-help and job creation to make them less dependent on government to provide jobs.
