The women were recently graduated after completing 8 months training in their chosen skills as part of a project CI is implementing with the financial support of Hilden Charitable Fund (UK).
Speaking at the graduation ceremony held in Latrikunda German, Samuel Mendy, programme assistant of CI, said they are optimistic that the participants would use the knowledge gained from the training to develop themselves.
He said the status of women should be enhanced by providing them with various services of income generating activities, skills development training, and so on.
“If their [women] challenges are not timely addressed, obviously fulfilling their potentials in society can’t be possible,” Mr Mendy said.
He further explained that the project is aimed at making the disadvantaged women self-reliant by making them contribute to the labour market and public life.
Mariama Mboob, project coordinator, urged the women to put into good use the knowledge gained from the training.
