Foundation trains blind persons on bead-making
Traditional rulers who love adorning their regalia with beads can now acquire these in Abia State, as some blind persons trained in the art by a non-governmental organisation, Hannah May Foundation, established and facilitated by Chief Mrs. Mercy Odochi Orji, wife of ex-governor, Chief Theodore Orji, currently the senator for Abia Central.
The blind persons under the aegis of National Association for the Blind (NAB) at the Umuahia Special School for the Blind acquired the art of bead and soap-making at a two-week intensive training.
The Foundation has also provided them with the necessary raw materials for making the beads and soap, with the expectation that they will be selling the items, while using the soap for their needs.The Guardian gathered that traditional rulers in the state have already declared interest in the beads, as samples have been shown them.
