FIRI KE EBI
In Ijaw the words Firi Ke Ebi are translated, as “work is good”. This name is the heart of the vocational training programs to be run in Bayelsa State.
Our initial pilot phase billed to commence in 2013 will involve training 200 young men and women in various vocational disciplines relevant to the building industry such as masonry; carpentry; electrical; plumbing; aluminum works; joinery and welding.
The program will also provide faith based character training and practical mentoring in order to ensure that trainees develop not only technical skills but also character traits for life.
We are currently in the process of preparations of all the key components for a successful take-off of the pilot phase of the program.
Firi Ke Ebi will collaborate with community youth groups and development associations across the 8 LGAs of Bayelsa State to identify young men and women aged 18 – 35 years for training in the pilot phase of the program.
