Allen Foundation Empowers Secondary School Students With Vocational And Digital Skills

Posted on September 13, 2021

As part of its commitment to eradicate poverty, NGO Allen Foundation hosted a 4-day skill and life empowerment outreach tagged Equipping the African Child of the 21st century realities for secondary  school students at the Dolphin Senior High School, Lagos Island.

The  event was held from the 7th to the 10th of September, and was designed to equip participants with relevant skills needed to broaden their career choices and remain self-sufficient in the ever-changing job market.

Speaking at the event, CEO, Allen Foundation, Lekan Oluwayomi said, ” The program is hinged on the drive to create sustainable empowerment. We believe that this training programme  will enable participants to gain a sense of direction for their career and future goals. 

“So far, we have successfully impacted over 500 persons through this event. We hope to extend this unique opportunity to other secondary schools across the country in the near future”, he continued.

The program is officially supported by the Lagos State Government and sponsored by Luxmart Fashion, a premium fashion brand based in Lagos also owned by the founder of Allen Foundation. 

The event impacted over 100 Senior Secondary school students from 11 Schools across the Lagos Island zone, training them in digital skills as well as pastry making on both days.

Founded by serial entrepreneur, Lekan Oluwayomi, Allen Foundation is a non-governmental organisation with a vision to eradicate poverty in the country.

Lekan’s passion for sustainable growth, especially as it relates to human capacity development and nation-building, has prompted him to host ‘Love Out & Chill’ — an impactful initiative set up to promote the foundation.
