Entrepreneurship

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND SKILLS ACQUISITION.


Unemployment is one of the developmental problems currently facing rural communities in Nigeria. The unemployment rate is a measure of the prevalence of unemployment and it is calculated as a percentage by dividing the number of unemployed individuals by all individuals currently in the labour force. The higher the unemployment rate in an economy the higher would be the poverty level and associated welfare challenges.


I was detained, out of bureaucratic mix-ups. As a direct victim of immigration, the ordeals of people held in custody for immigration breaches or offenses, in the United Kingdom, came to be fully registered. As if that was not enough, I had to be excused out of custody, to be with my daughter, pretty Anne Adedoyin Odeyemi, then aged 4 years, confirmed by doctors to have just a few days to live. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour!

However, my experience in the time of immigration incarceration was all I needed to go through, for the vision to be dropped on my laps. I heard the Lord spoke to me, not once, but thrice, asking me to accept a ministry of caring for the abandoned, ignored and forsaken youths of our world.

I gained my freedom later, after several months in immigration detention. But by then, God has perfected the timing to recruit a hand to help champion a cause of remembering the needy, the hopeless and the voiceless of our society. The vision to reach out to the needy, especially of the rural areas, and the metropolis was born.

If we can empower youths to have gainful employment and empower the needy most especially in rural areas escape poverty, we will all make our countries a better place to live. And then the death of my daughter Anne would not be in vain, I believe!

Health

70% of Nigerians live in rural areas. The rural sector plays an important role in the generation of national wealth. There's no doubt that the development of rural areas is a sine qua non for national development. However, Sound health is a basic necessity for a socially and economically productive life of rural areas.


Rehabilitation

Deportation has multiple detrimental effects on individuals who are deported, and on the families and communities, they are forced to leave behind.


The effects of deportation are felt by individuals, families, and communities. Nearly 4 in 5 families screened in family detention centres have a “credible fear” of persecution should they be forced to return to the countries from which they migrated (US Citizenship and Immigration Services, 2016). Many of those deported are forced to return to dangerous, turbulent environments, and deportations have resulted in kidnapping, torture, rape, and murder (Stillman, 2018).
