Next, we provide entrepreneurial training/education at local colleges, helping with both small cottage industry type endeavors as well as full business training seminars. Over 1000 students typically attend each one week program and are overjoyed to receive US business training. The Rotary Club of Owerri is very involved in the follow up of these and facilitates data collection and mentoring of students who implement the skills we bring. Job creation is one of the greatest needs in Nigeria. The Igbo people are industrious, intelligent and passionate about building a better future for their children and always eager to participate and attend these programs. Each person who starts his own business affects at least 6 people in his family/community. Poverty reduction and job creation leads to many different aspects of community healing, which we aim to help promote in it's various forms.
