Sacred Heart Cottage Industry

The Sacred Heart Cottage Industry started as an attempt to give marketable skills to young women who are school dropouts, and who otherwise would end up either being trafficked, given to early marriage, or in prostitution. It is also an attempt to restore a dying trade in the village community of Atani Uromi.

As an integrated development project aimed at addressing the issues of poverty with its resultant effects, the cottage industry offers an enabling environment for growth, employment opportunities and marketable skills that will prepare the target population for meaningful life in the community. The industry comprises five departments. Some of the trainees are re-employed after their training and some are assisted to establish on their own. In addition to the skills both the trainees and workers are given instructions on home management, simple hygiene and leadership. The training is designed to last for two years and within these two years the trainees are expected to have acquired skills in at least two departments.

SST Scholarship Programme

This Scholarship Fund called SISTER SYLVIA THIBODEAUX SCHOLARSHIP FUND is established to assist indigent young girls go through high school. We believe that the best way to help our young women build up their dignity is to give them good education – formal and non-formal. This will liberate and empower them for the future. One preventive measure against trafficking is to encourage children, especially those in rural areas to go to school. We believe that when you educate a child you educate a village. Education will empower people to stand up for their rights and will give them the necessary tools to be positive contributors to their community and society at large. SST Scholarship Program is another way to provide opportunity to rural young girls for quality education – bedrock of empowerment.
