Continuing the Centre’s support to internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Nigeria, we recently partnered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to provide business start-up kits to trained beneficiaries of the UNHCR Protection Safety-Nets and Livelihoods project in Borno State, North East Nigeria. The Centre’s donation is aimed at providing stability for the beneficiaries through the creation of livelihoods as well as training on income generation and micro-entrepreneurship. Over 50 beneficiaries from Maiduguri Municipal Centre (MMC) were trained in areas of tailoring, carpentry and shoe making, the 8 week programme concluded with additional training on Financial Literacy and Business Development.
