INDIGENT YOUTHS IN WARRI
OBJECTIVE: Free computer training for 100 indigent young people’s selected from different communities around Warri. To empower them economically and eradicate poverty. To prepare the next generation for today’s technology driven world.
CAP 100 is an acronym for Computer Appreciation Programme (CAP) to train 100 people. This project initiated by JCI Warri is a skill acquisition project for free information technology training. Teaching them how to use computers, and how to generate income with information technology. Giving them critical skills needed to succeed thereby empowering the next generation. We want to put a CAP on the head of a 100 people.
WE NEED TO SOURCE FOR A BIGGER TRAINING FACILITY TO TAKE MAORE THAN TEN PARTICIPANTS IN A CLASS. THE TRAINING WAS DONE IN BATCHES OF 10-15 PERSONS THEREBY INCREASING THE BURDEN ON THE FACILITATORS.
WE WERE OVERWHELMED BY THE NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS THAT INDICATED INTEREST AND REGISTERED. 50 PERSONS HAVE SO FAR GRADUATED FROM THE CAP 100 PROGRAM. THE BEST GRADUATING STUDENT GOT A JOB COURTESY OF THE SPONSOR. MOST OF THE GRADUATES HAVE GOTTEN EMPLOYED BASED ON THE NEW SKILL THE POSSESS, SOME ARE SELF EMPLOYED. SOME STARTED BULK SMS AND INTERNET MARKETING BUSINESS. NEW MEMBERS WERE ADDED TO JCI WARRI AS A RESULT OF THIS PROGRAM.
