Skill acquisition is a principal factor in building a successful career, significantly enhancing one’s employability and opening doors to various career opportunities. It serves as a cornerstone for driving holistic development within communities, fostering economic empowerment, and promoting sustainable growth.

Recognising the transformative impact of its ongoing skill acquisition initiatives, Ibom Developers has extended its programme to the Amazaba community in Eastern Obolo LGA, Akwa Ibom State, from June 3 to 14, 2024. 

This initiative aims to foster economic empowerment and community development by equipping participants with practical skills essential for economic independence.

During the event, 160 women received intensive training in catering, food hygiene, packaging, hairdressing, wig making, ventilation, and styling over a period of two weeks.

Distinguished guests, including Chief Gogonte Luke Nglass, Chairman of the Amazaba Council of Chiefs; Chief Alexander Ikowa, Village Head of Okorobilom; Chief J.J. Job, Village Head of Bethlehem; Mrs. Gloria Gogonte, Vice President of the Amazaba Women Association; and Victoria Solomon Bibama, Assistant Secretary of the Amazaba Women Association, were present.

Grateful for the initiative and its impact on the community, especially in advancing women’s skills, Chief Gogonte Luke Nglass expressed optimism for transformative change, stating, “We are grateful, and we eagerly anticipate witnessing the profound effects of this initiative on our community.”

Skill acquisition empowers individuals to navigate the modern job market, achieve personal and professional growth, and contribute to economic and social development.

Emphasising the role of skill acquisition in empowering women and youth, Victoria Solomon Bibama expressed, “This is highly commendable, and initiatives like these bring us closer to a future where every woman can thrive and no community is left behind.”

Equipping women with relevant skills, especially in rural areas, expands opportunities for meaningful employment. Ibom Developers’ efforts contribute to building a stronger society, facilitating economic growth and social progress.
