The venture is to serve as a platform for youth development, fostering entrepreneurship and preserving Ekiti’s rich cultural heritage where 200 unemployed youth would, for starters, be trained and equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge free of charge to become proficient in Adire craftsmanship.

Participants will receive hands-on training from skilled artisans, learning traditional techniques alongside modern practices to ensure their competitiveness in today’s market.

The programme launch is scheduled to hold at Senator Ojudu’s Residence, Opposite NNPC along Iworoko Road, Ado-Ekiti at 10am prompt.
