Donation period

1st January – 31st December 2016

Training workshop for 150 youths

150 youths can be trained as fitters, carpenters and tailors at the training workshop who would otherwise be condemned to live in poverty with no prospects as academic training costs money in Nigeria that can only be paid for by rich parents.

The outer walls are in place

In June 2013, the Enyemaka Ohaneze – Hilfe für alle e.V. was established, and thanks to many events and donations was able to provide the financial means to complete the outer walls of the centre. Work on the interior of the centre has also begun, but unfortunately the organisation has now run out of funds. For that reason, the building work stopped in June 2015 and the aim of completing the workshop by the end of 2015 was never achieved. Young people are eagerly waiting for their chance to be able to secure a meaningful life, because otherwise they will end up on the street, slipping into the crime or seek out dangerous methods to flee towards Europe.

€35,000 outstanding

To complete the building work, about €35,000 is still needed. The organisation has great hopes of receiving plenty of support so that the grand opening can take place at the end of 2016. The centre is a project for the future that should become self-sufficient through the selling of the products that youths in training produce in the workshops.
