As part of its commitment to continually impart lives positively in various communities, First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Women sponsored and graduated a batch of young secondary school leavers in a 3-month intensive skills acquisition and basic business management training programme to empower them with entrepreneurial and employability skills. 

According to a statement from the bank, the youth empowerment and employability training programme sponsored by FCMB Women was in collaboration with Jakin N.G.O, a highly renowned organization, with an overall aim of solving some of the challenges faced by underprivileged youth.

The batch made up of ten young secondary school leavers from rural communities in Lagos within the age range of 16 and 21 years under-went training in computer application skills, business management and planning, book keeping, work ethics, time management, bead and soap making, among others.

Divisional Head, Corporate Services Division, First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Miss Felicia Obozuwa said, FCMB women are very passionate about empowering children especially the less privileged to fulfil their dreams. “This is our little way of helping to ensure that vulnerable girls who have just finished secondary school, are not idle, but given the basic training and exposure, required to give them a head start for a bright future.”

One of the beneficiaries of the Fresh Foundation training Program, Miss Blessing Ogbansiegbe and the best graduating beneficiary who won in addition, a three-month internship with FCMB thanked FCMB Women immensely for the opportunity she got to partake in the programme.
