I was selected as one of the beneficiaries of Promoting Inclusive Economic Growth through sustainable Project (PIE-GDP, and am learning tailoring. I was not doing anything at hope and with no hope of any source of income until United Way Greater Nigeria chose to support me and help me acquire a skill and be self reliant.
