Children are God’s heritage& rare gifts, so goes a popular maxim. This stage can only come but once, it is to be enjoyed to the fullest while it lasts. At The Jewel Empowerment Foundation, we give children of all status especially the vulnerable ones a sense of belonging to feel identified with the society and not stigmatized. We have make it a point of duty to show love to children as evident in our motto…created to make you smile. On yearly basis we visit and many times celebrate birthdays in orphanage homes, and other public places. Plans are ongoing for less-privileged children to interact and freely engage their counterparts that are highly placed.
Seminar / Symposium
We organize seminars in form of career talks, health talks, entrepreneurship and skills development for our target audience which includes youth, vulnerable and abused children so as to give them relevance anywhere they find themselves.
These seminars take place annually and in some cases quarterly, depending on the location and category of the audience. At such seminars some people become beneficiaries of some scholarship awards sponsored by dignitaries, government or corporate establishments.
Fro our findings, we discovered that some children and secondary school students find it difficult to relate with their peers; some have very low self-esteem and they do not believe anything good can come from them. Some abused ones find it hard to fit into the society. In a bid to encourage, revitalize and orientate them, THE JEWEL EMPOWERMENT FOUNDATION put together an interactive platform where they are given value. As a result, most participant usually have course to smile because we expose them to seasoned personnels and counselors.
Skill Acquisition Program / Workshop
It’s no longer news that the rate of youth unemployment is on the increase and this cannot be dissociated from the poor standard of living in the country. Unemployment boosts societal menace since ”the idle mind is the devil’s workshop”. Apparently the government cannot provide employment to cater for all the people due to so many factors; therefore private partnership is required. At THE JEWEL EMPOWERMENT FOUNDATION we organize vocational training for all class of persons, and participants are always tutored by renowned & experienced instructors. Such skills include textile production (tie and dye), baking and confectioneries, fashion designing, beads making, shoe making to mention a few.
More often than not, Conferences are organized to chart a revolutionary course on a wider scale with the sole aim of creating a good platform for youths to explore opportunities in major areas of human endeavors.
