At Ene Naturals, youth and women development is our focus as a company because women are nation builders while the youth are the future of any nation. Women make more than half of Nigeria’s population as such when women are educated, the impact goes a long way to affect the nation. This is the reason why we have always offered free natural skincare trainings to women and the youth. Last week Friday on November 29th, 2019, we partnered with the Rotary club of Lagos (Isolo & Omole Gold) to offer our services pro bono to help train some youths.
Nigeria’s youth are curious, inquisitive and have a hunger and drive to learn and do things. This enthusiasm to achieve great things was what I felt and saw in the faces and actions of the youth that I was opportune to teach last week Friday at the Rotary Club youth and leadership training program known as RYLA. It was such a fantastic experience.
My journey on that day started at the Five Cowries terminal in Ikoyi where I boarded a ferry along with the vibrant and hardworking Rotary Club members who had sacrificed everything to make this event happen. I have utmost respect for all of them. That day was indeed the first time I would be boarding a ferry in Nigeria.
The hour-long trip took us across the water to the sea school at Apapa – a leadership training camp that was packed full of knowledge-seeking youths! It was so exciting to be there.
During the training session, I taught about creating natural skincare products and how to start such business. There was live exhibition on how natural body creams are made. The interactive session was exciting as well as the future entrepreneurs threw one question after another at me. In the end, they were motivated to venture into this form of entrepreneurship.
In the future, we are hoping to partner with more organizations to conduct training sessions as well as continue with our free online tutorials targeted at the youth and women. The last online session we had produced new entrepreneurs so we are eager to do more.
Would you like to partner with us? We are happy to offer our services pro bono. We offer both physical and online sessions.
Impact a life today!
