COINKWARA TARGETS VULNERABLE GROUPS IN ITS COLLABORATIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES

2018 Global Entrepreneurship Week at Kwara
 
During the last quarter of 2018, we decided to expand our reach to more groups within the society, most especially, the disable people and girls.

In October, 2018, our partnership with the Association of Professional Counsellors in Nigeria (APROCON) (Offa branch) in celebrating the 2018 International Girl Child Day, focused on the theme, “With Her: A skilled Girl force”. To achieve our aim of guiding the girls towards becoming skilled workforce, Coinkwara organized women professionals and entrepreneurs to educate and motivate the girls so that they do not end up their future in the kitchen. The programme which hosted more than 100 participants, majorly secondary school girls from 10 schools witnessed presentation of certificates by the Coinkwara Programme Director, Mr Hanafi Olanrewaju Rabiu and ended with the vote of thanks which was delivered by Coin Consults’ HCD Director, Mr. Amura Olaitan Gafar.

In November, 2018, Coinkwara joined other organizations and entrepreneurs in holding series of events to celebrate the 2018 Global Entrepreneurship Week in Ilorin, Kwara State.

The week began with entrepreneurship training programme and meet up. The other days featured fitness exercise, city tour and visit to the Kwara State Government House. 
The week opened up more opportunities for entrepreneurs to network and learn from each other. Through the street walk and the visit to the government house, awareness was raised on the plight of entrepreneurs within the state. It was an eventful week for entrepreneurs.

As able bodied men and women continue to lead in entrepreneurship development, there was the need to channel some resources towards aiding the cause of disabled members of the society in entrepreneurship. These set of people are disadvantaged in joining the entrepreneurship race, more so during this time when the Nigerian economy is very hard.
To support the disable people, the Coinkwara Programme Director, Mr. Hanafi Olanrewaju Rabiu lifted the spirit of the disabled people through his presentation “you are unstoppable despite your disability” at The Disable Fiesta and Second Annual Lecture which held on 15th December, 2018. He also gave free business consultancy services to the disable people.
