Second Cohort of PVOT project begins 

The second cohort of the Promotion of Vocational Training (PVOT), an Inspire Action skills and capacity building project kicked off on Monday 26th February with its first session. 

The training which focuses on wig making has a robust curriculum that encompasses introduction to wig making; hair and scalp anatomy; materials and tools; wig construction techniques; and maintenance and repair.  

PVOT is a 12-month project that seeks to equip individuals with practical skills, to enable them secure better livelihoods and contribute meaningfully to their communities. Each cohort lasts for a month. 

A mandatory entrepreneurship course is included in the training. Throughout the course, the trainees will be lectured on business management, marketing, and financial literacy to empower them to start their own ventures and become self-reliant.

The first session of the second cohort saw 4 participants on the first day. However, registration is still open to all vulnerable persons who also want to learn. 

The lead trainer for the wig making class, Hawawu Karim expressed her excitement about the training as a lot of young people could benefit from it.

“When the trainees make the wig, they can choose to sell or wear it. I encourage all persons to come and learn because it’s absolutely free,” she said.

Program Background

Inspire Action has launched the pilot phase of this project in several fields such as fashion design, wig construction, barbering and detergent fabrication. 

Our aim is to reach out to the underprivileged members of our society such as orphans, persons living with disabilities, youths who cannot afford regular training schools, victims of human and sex trafficking, victims of gender-based violence, etc. 

This project is an opportunity to equip beneficiaries with the necessary skills and tools to foster economic security upon successful completion of the training either through employment opportunities on the free market or self-employment, thereby providing a certain level of economic stability to support their livelihoods.
