Changing Lives


Finance and training equipment has been our major debilitating constraints. This is because a lot of grounds are yet to be covered because of financial limitations. We need a standard training hall with ICT section as most of the youth want to venture into ICT but for the financial constraint we have. Our facilities are limited compared to the number of women/youth who are in dire need of entrepreneurial education and skills in order to make a maximum impact in their lives and the society.

The organization has intervened by implementing so many programs like skills development programmes, sensitizing women and youth on peaceful coexistence and the need to rise to their economic responsibility at different levels, develop the skills of women engaged in economic activities for more output. Also, the organisation give grants /assistance to physically challenged women to enhance their economic development capacity.

  • Our sensitization programs have been making women and youth conscious of the needs to be productive and thus reducing over dependency on the government..
  • And as a value change of activities the vocational training provided have made the former idle women and youth to be actively involved in economic activities. the various training on crafts like bead making, Ankara bags making, detergent production and similarly other have been putting food on the tables of youth  who were idle before the training programs. We have so far trained 150 women and youth and as they graduate, others are being enrolled especially the displaced person due to the insurgency crisis in our north east region because Taraba is a little safer as at now in the north east. In 2015/2016, WEEI trained 76 widows in production and processing of Moringa oil and tea. Industrial Training students from Colleges of Agric and Education have been accommodated to receive entrepreneurial and skills development in different areas since 2014.
  • Trainings on marketing/financial skills have given the women and youth a wave of direction on marketing their products and how to access bank loans and credits with ease.
