Church empowers 770 entrepreneurs
Daystar Christian Centre, Lagos at the just concluded Daystar Skill Acquisition Programme (DSAP) has trained over 770 young entrepreneurs in the first quarter of the year. The skills include photography, make up artistry, catering, fruits art, pastries and small chops, bread making, event décor and web design, among others.
At the graduation ceremony, last Friday, the Registrar DSAP, Paul Nwolisa, said the training, which holds every quarter, serves as a means of empowering indigent Nigerians to learn one or two skills for financial independence. He said: “Our focus as a church is making positive impacts and raising role models in the society. We hold the training three times a year: Februarys, Junes and Octobers. DSAP is an idea from God to give hope to the hopeless, succour to the discouraged and lifting people out of poverty.”
Nwolisa, while noting that the church is the centre of hope for the nation, said almost 1, 000 people were admitted for the free training, though only 770 applicants graduated after two weeks of intensive and practical trainings. He urged the young entrepreneurs to follow up on their trainings with their various faculties, as two weeks may not be enough.
Also, the church’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), Pastor Kenny Folarin said: “We started the programme some years ago, and to God’s glory, there are testimonies of changed lives, improved incomes and reduction of poverty. This is opened to members and non-members, including people of other religions. This set is the 26th.”
