Abuja – Global Timeline Initiative, an NGO, on Saturday, trained some widows, elderly couples as well as the vulnerable young people in catering, bakery and home management in Wumba, a rural community in Apo, Abuja.
The Founder of the NGO, Miss Precious Lovelyn, said that the gesture was to show unconditional love to the vulnerable people in the area by empowering them on basic skills.
“Timeline is an NGO born out of love for the hopeless, with the dream of showing light to those who are unfortunately pushed to the dark side of life.
“Established in 2016, it aims to bring joy and support to widows, the fatherless as well as couples who “have no blessings of the womb’’ till old age.
“Our target is to reach as many of these vulnerable groups as possible in order to reduce the level of poverty and lack in our society, ”she said.
Lovelyn said that the foundation had, over the years, embarked on frequent empowerment visitations to orphanages and rural communities within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
She said that Wumba was selected for the outreach after a survey of rural communities in the territory to ascertain the areas in need of support and empowerment.
The founder of the NGO assured that similar initiatives would be organised in future for other communities in the FCT.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the NGO presented food items and empowerment materials to a cross section of widows, elderly couples as well as the vulnerable young people in the community.
