The Deeper Christian Life Ministry is set to graduate the first batch of its multi-purpose Skill Acquisition Programme for youths.
The programme, which is being run by the professional and vocational arm of the ministry, the Young Professional Forum, is set to present awards and certificates to 355 young men and women.
The participants are drawn from a broad spectrum of persuasions and religious affiliations.
A statement by the Office of the General Superintendent of the ministry, Pastor W. F. Kumuyi, said the initial graduation is first in the series of fast-paced, multi-faceted curricular being served to address unemployment and under-employment challenges facing the youth.
The statement said: “Strategic institutions in our society need to act fast and in concert with government at various levels to confront the unemployment conundrum, which is adversely affecting our youths, who constitute a vital plank of our population.”
