NGO Donates To The Blind

Senior  Women ‘s mentoring and Empowerment Guild, SEWmEG, has donated vocational materials to visually impaired female students at the Centre for the Blind in Oshodi, Lagos, southwest Nigeria.

Speaking during the presentation recently, Mrs Lana Olonisakin, SEWmEG Coordinator General said: “We are committed to developing  the capacity of those groups of  girls as well as facilitating  economic empowerment for them through special skill training for the blind  girls.

“In this regard, we will  continue to work in partnership with you. We are very proud of the past and present students of this centre. You will go to higher places because you never once allowed your situation to  demoralize you and prevent you from moving forward,” she stated.

Corroborating her statement Mrs Anike Ojo and Rakiya Chinyere, both SEWmEG officials said that  supporting disadvantaged girls and young women to become productive members of their communities by creating opportunities for economic and personal empowerment were part of the SEWmEG vision .

Expressing gratitude to the group, Mr  Ogunsiji, the principal of the school stated that the items which included two bags of caustic soda for soap making and 30 yards of brocade materials for tye and die would make a great impact on their vocational training.
