LASID marks anniversary, trains 60 youths, women
The Lagos School of Interior Design (LASID), as part of activities for its one-year anniversary celebration, with a commitment to redefining the present and future of innovative interior designing in Nigeria has empowered over 60 youths and women who are currently blazing the trail in the construction and interior design industry.
Speaking at the anniversary celebration which held recently at the school campus in Festac Town, Lagos, the chief administrator, who also doubles as the founder of Norah-K International Brand, Norah Blessing Ezeoha said the school was established to boost the competitiveness of the Nigerian economy, especially in the construction, event management and interior design industry.
She said: “The mission of LASID is to constantly provide valuable programmes and workshops as it relates to interior design, collaborating with various government agencies, private organisations, individuals and foreign aids to empower Nigerians.
“Our utmost commitment is to create job opportunities and empower indigent youth and women in our society through sponsorships and scholarships programmes that relate to interior design.”
According to Ezeoha, these scholarships cover the student’s tuition, training materials, equipment and start-up kits to get them started and bridge the gap in the current job market demands as well as encourage self-reliance among them.
She further said LASID has graduated over 60 students in the past year, most of whom are blazing the trail in the interior design industry, adding that the demand for interior design professionals are constantly on the rise, even as building and construction fields are fast expanding.
To further encourage participants, Norah called and offered over 50 per cent discount to those willing to join the November session on interior design finishing and applications workshop, which cut across installations of various walls and flooring decorations as well as window treatments.
