As part of our commitment to ensuring a brighter future for its current and past students, executives of Federal Government Girls’ College (FGGC) Sagamu Alumni Association recently organised a 3-day skill acquisition program tagged Stimulate Passion, Unleash Resilience (S.P.U.R 2019).

The skill acquisition program featured eight facilitators who are alumni members, along with six co-facilitators. The over 500 participants were exposed to the techniques of making COCONUT OIL & COCONUT CANDY, HAIR ACCESSORIES (FASCINATORS), BREAD & PASTRY, VENUE DECORATION, HOUSEHOLD CLEANING LIQUID PRODUCTION, WIG MAKING, BAG & PURSE MAKING and other vocational skills.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, the Alumni President, Mrs. Titilayomi Soyemi Akinseinde, a 1989 set old girl, stated that S.P.U.R 2019 was organized with the objective of igniting creativity in the students and equipping them with vocational skills which will be profitable to them after their school years.

She said “As one who has been in the workforce for years, I have come to the conclusion that the place of skills acquisition should and can never be undermined hence the reason we put this program together. The program is to enable the girls become contributors to the economy, while sharpening their entrepreneurial skills”.

“The heart and mind of the alumni is set on making a difference on, and to impact the lives of the students and as such I admonish everyone present here to grab this opportunity with both hands and learn, so when out of school you can make money at your leisure’ she concluded.

The School Principal, Barrister. Esther Akamo, expressed delight and appreciation to the Aumni for all the resources deployed to make the program a huge success.

“It is very rare to find an Alumni who still cares for the school and its students, and I am very grateful to everyone that was a part of this. The need to acquire skills cannot be overemphasized and I feel so lucky that this is happening during my tenure as principal”

The 3-day training program ended with the students showcasing their newly acquired skills to their parents and guardians.
