SKILLS ACQUISITION

SKILLS ACQUISITION
Our two weeks subsidized training started on October 3, 2017 at The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Ijesha.

EDUCATION

EDUCATION
Don't be deceived. The standard of education in Nigeria has dropped so badly that it is beginning to lose its relevance, but rather than turn our backs on it completely, rather than encourage our children not to go to school, rather than insult it the more, we should champion a course on how to make it what it ought to be and more attractive. We should teach our children the real importance of education and not just to come out and get a good job. Trends are changing, the world has evolved and our educational system must evolve and not allowed to dissolve. Don't be deceived. Send your childre...
