TBTP equips youths with vocational skills
A non-governmental organisation, Think Beyond The Present (TBTP), has equipped some willing youths with vocational skills to make them contribute meaningfully to the national economy.
At the graduation ceremony held recently, the graduands, who were trained on makeup and head tie (gele) for about two weeks were urged to build and develop on the skills they have acquired.

She said the essence of the programme was to reduce unemployment in the country, by equipping Nigerian youths with vocational skills in a bid to make them self-reliant.
According to her, the three year old organisations now has an outfit in the United States (US) and has recorded remarkable achievements that have attracted commendations across the world.
“Over the years, the group has been committed to helping and meeting people’s need with the aim of building capacity and making visionary youths exploit opportunities around them, even with the limited resources available.”
These, according to her, cuts across the impacts on widows, the sick, less privileged children, and a number of unemployed youths.
TBTP in partnership with Afro model award convener, James Jegede, a Nigerian based in London has covered a mileage in youth empowerment.
Oluwatoyin, a motivational speaker and journalist, said her vision is to help people see beyond the present situation, seeing more positivity in life rather than negativity. She added that her goal is to raise vibrant youths who can believe in themselves.
The Trainer and Chief Executive Officer, Natis Beauty Unisex Salon, Oluwaseun Babatunde said the students have achieved a lot during the training period, adding that the knowledge would be useful for them in their future endeavors and ultimately make them self-reliant.
