The second segment of the program will include small/medium scale entrepreneurship empowerment training for youths, women  and girls poverty to acquire skills and knowledge they need to secure a livelihood, and support their families that involves training in  traditional bead making, makeup and gele, event decoration training, nail fixing and eye lashes, pedicure and manicure,  pastry and catering

Imemesi mentioned that the educational empowerment will cater for donation of writing materials to school pupils (books, biros, pencils etc), donation of school bags and uniforms to pupils and payment of scholarships for pupils, payment of school fees, WAEC/GCE, JAMB exams, payment for after-school coaching classes.
