Women at Risk International Foundation (WARIF) has trained over 120 Secondary School students on various vocational skills in the first edition of its WARIF Student Empowerment Programme. The training, which was held on the 27th and 29th of May 2019 is part of WARIF’s drive to equip young girls, faced with challenges of maintaining a school education, with additional skill sets necessary to become empowered and financially independent.

The training brought together experts in Makeup, Shoe Making, Fascinator Craft, Jewelry, Baking and Soap Making to teach students on how to learn and become experts in such skills, so as to generate an income for themselves. This initiative by WARIF further enforces the organisation’s commitment to reducing the prevalence of sexual abuse following a sizable record of survivors whose perpetrators are well known and trusted individuals, most of whom survivors are financially dependent upon.

Speaking on the relevance of the training Dr. Kemi Da Silva Ibru, Founder of WARIF stated that vocational skills training is one of the key ways of  tackling the issue of financial independence of sexual abuse survivors; “The program  serves to empower young girls and women  and to address  the issue of the financial gap that exists with women who are in abusive relationships and situations but may not have a vocational skills set and are forced to remain and make poor choices  due to this financial constraint.” she added.
