The CEO of Millard Fuller Foundation, Sam Odia, on 2nd April 2019 received power tools on behalf of Millard Fuller Foundation during the inauguration of a steering committee and handover of power tools ceremony that took place in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The power tools were given to beneficiary institutes whose artisans were trained under the Technical Trainings in Nigerian Construction, Agricultural and Automotive Industries (TTCAA) project in partnership with C. Woermann Nigeria. The aim of the training is to increase the employability of young Nigerian job seekers and employees of micro, small and medium enterprises in the construction, agricultural and automotive industries.

The project has trained 60 artisans selected from three beneficiary institutes and technical partners, namely, Shelter Watch Initiative (SWI), Millard Fuller Foundation (MFF) and Peter Akinola Foundation (PAF). These institutions are expected to step up the technical training and empowerment to 1,500 artisans within a year of training between 2019 and 2020 using GIZ technical manual and the power tools supplied.

The TTCAA project is a project of the programme funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH through its Skills Development for Youth Employment in Nigeria (SKYE) programme.
