Total presents starter packs to entrepreneurs in Delta
Total Nigeria Plc has presented starter packs to five graduating youths of its 2015 Skills Acquisition Programme (SAP) in Koko, Delta State.
SAP is a sustainable youth development programme designed to empower less privileged youths of the affiliate’s host communities.
The youths were trained in vocations of their choice, which include welding and fabrication, fish and crop farming, fashion designing, computer studies, furniture making and hair dressing. This programme has since its inception in 2006, graduated 45 youths in Delta state.
At the event, on behalf of the Managing Director, Jean-Philippe Torres, the Corporate Affairs Manager, Albert Mabuyaku, presented to the five graduating youths starter packs needed for establishing successful businesses in their various vocations.
Starter packs are work tools required to set up small scale businesses for the beneficiaries upon their completion of one year training.
Albert Mabuyaku reiterated Total Nigeria Plc’s continued efforts to achieve its shared ambition of sustainable development for its communities.
He implored the youths to continue believing in their abilities and strength to become achievers in their different vocations whilst working hard towards becoming the pride of their communities.
He continued by saying “despite the current tough economic situation, we had to go the extra mile to ensure that these starter packs are procured as we cannot compromise the development of our communities and that of our youths. We therefore implore you to make the most of these equipment since all you require to run your small and medium scale business has been provided including two years prepaid shop rent.”
