15 youths have been empowered by a Non Governmental Organisation, 7:11 Foundation in conjunction with Making A Difference (M.A.D Nigeria).
The foundation, which organised the empowerment programme in Oyo State was aimed at supporting Small and medium enterprises, SMEs.
The SMEs were selected through online platforms such as its Instagram @7:11foundation with focus on youth.
At the end of the training programme, 15 youths emerged and were then trained in various areas of expertise.
Also, five of the youths were given a grant of N250,000 each to enable them grow their businesses.
The recipients, who were full of appreciation, promised to invest the money into the growth of their businesses and put the skills they have acquired to good use.
The foundation promised to organise an even bigger event next year.
