|GMYT Fashion Academy Reduces Unemployment In Nigeria, Admits 40 by Tonydivinep: 3:31pm On Aug 13|
As part of its social responsibility to help reduce the unemployment rate in Nigeria, GMYT Fashion Academy has inducted 40 students into its school.
Speaking during the induction, the Chief Executive Officer of the academy, Princess Oghen said that the academy was created to tackle the high unemployment rate in the country, to empower people’s desire in understanding the basic concept of fashion designing.
She said that the students will be challenged with practical work as well as latest skills that will equip them for a lifetime.
“The academy is committed to excellence, innovation, student satisfaction and development through shared efforts. “While the second arm of the beauty institute, the GMYT Foundation is an empowerment platform for women to learn various aspects of fashion illustration, design and manufacture via scholarship provision by the GMYT fashion academy,” she said.
The fashion boss also said that her foundation not only desires to train and equip women, youths with skills in fashion design but also seeks to provide business knowledge for its beneficiaries.
“Once we have 50 students and above we induct. So maybe in another two or three months we shall be inducting another set like this.”
“In just a few years, the GMYT Foundation has raised over N200 million mentoring and coaching over 200 unemployed women and youths in fashion designs and how to run their businesses. This year, the goal has been raised to training 500 unemployed women and youths.
“The call to diversify our oil-driven economy is becoming louder, and our plan is to minimize unemployment with fashion entrepreneurship. We as a people must measure progress by the impacts made on society because it is absolutely unfair to judge a man by what he lacks. Our people need jobs.
“GMYT Fashion Academy is the place to discover your passion in fashion design, access all the knowledge you need to launch successful fashion brands and businesses.
