The youth will receive vocational and technical training, fish farming, poultry, agricultural enterprise, hairdressing, barbing saloon, catering and culinary service, music and entertainment component, event management and decoration, fashion design and tailoring.

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr Sunday Dare who commended the gesture by the Commission said HYPPADEC’s empowerment programme will complement the Federal Government’s investment in the youth.

“What HYPPADEC is doing is training 10,000 youths in one year and when combined with the 280,000 youths that the Ministry of Youth and Sports had trained in two-and-a-half years, you see a President committed to investing in the youth and empowering the youth from poverty into prosperity,” he said.
