..charged to be focused and rule their world
Training activities at the two weeks Bemore Summer Bootcamp for girls, holding at Mabest Academy, Oke-Ijebu Akure, was rounded up today, being the thirteenth day, with an introduction to fashion design.
Founder of a UK-Based organisation, Mrs. Chinelo Bally, who came with an electronic multipurpose sewing machine, took the girls through basic ideas in fashion designing, which include, measurement, radius, cutting and sewing process.
Reacting to the training, the Founder of the Bemore Empowered Girls Foundation, Chief Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, commended Mrs Bally for the gesture in sponsoring girls for the programme and for also sparing her time to come and train the girls.
Mrs Akeredolu, who is the First Lady of Ondo State, announced the possibility of continuing the fashion design training online with Mrs Bally, since the girls had been equipped with ICT knowledge and would go home with laptop each.
Giving the girls words of encouragement about their future as they leave camp, the Director -General of Ada Owere Campaign Organisation, Pastor Iyke Onuoha, charged them to be focused and determine to rule their world.
He advised them to speak up against ills, and be determined to fulfil their visions in life.
Earlier in the day, the girls were subjected to computer-based examinations in Solar Technology and ICT, to test their level of understanding of all they’ve learnt so far.
The results of their performance would be announced tomorrow (Saturday), during the graduation ceremony where a valedictorian would emerge.
Other activities that rounded up the camp included, a seat-out with the Founder where some girls displayed their talents in singing, dancing, public speaking, breast cancer advocacy, amongst others.
There was an evaluation exercise for all girls about their observations on every aspect of the camp’s activities.
