Huawei Donates Centre for Skills Acquisition development Training in Lagos



As part of efforts targeted at alleviating poverty and empowering the youths in Lagos, Huawei Technologies Co. Nigeria Limited, in partnership with Fortis Projects Services, have donated a skill acquisition and development centre to the state.

Named after the wife of the First Military Governor of Lagos State, Funmilayo Mobolaji Johnson Skill Acquisition Centre, Huawei said the centre is designed as an alternative to white collar jobs.

The basic intention is to impact knowledge in various fields ranging from catering, hat and bead making, hairdressing, fashion designing, photography, fridge and air conditioner maintenance, leather works, wood and carpentry, adult literacy and computer studies.

According to the Sole Administrator of Eti-Osa East Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Prince Babatunde Ayo Ayeni, the centre represents an alternative means of livelihood for the people in the community.

Buttressing the point, the Executive Director at Fortis Group, Richard Dotun Adebayo, said the completion of the project marked the beginning of a new dawn for the young men and women of the local community.

“The project is here to empower you become all that you hope to become in life. You have the opportunities to break boundaries, cross the line and reach new heights,” he stated.
