Our 2018 skills acquisition training cycle is over!! It’s been a long year but it’s been worthwhile for our trainees, our community, our partners, our company and our major benefactors @nepcsouthwest who entrusted us with this facility. Still a far cry from where we should be but we will get there and soon too. 🙏🏿🙏🏿 I enjoyed sharing this part of what we do @shftrains with the fashion community during #lagosfashionweek @lagosfashionweekofficial It was very refreshing to steal some time from the tents and all the prepping to catch a glimpse of how some of the work we do translates to equipping women and youths with the much needed skills that the sector needs to grow, its potential for job creation, income generation and of course contribution to the economy. Thankful for everyone who believes in us! Thankful for Morenikeji @vathiswabykeji ,Chichi @zurizola.woman and the rest of the army working non stop! Can’t stop! Won’t stop!

Love this!!! 💘 #repost @yagazieemezi A moment backstage with beautiful model Rebecca during Lagos Fashion Week. Staring into the abyss of all my anxieties, wondering how I ended up walking for magic @maki.oh and praying to the heavens that I don’t trip over my own feet as I often do.
