For example one of the student I trained, her name is Gladys, she is deaf and dumb but she has a skill of sewing so I trained her till she became the best in what she does and also her sister Mercylyn she is deaf and dumb too so I trained her in the field she is good at which is Making of different type of wigs and braids all my colorful braids and wigs you see are done by her.
She is good at it, with the platform I helped them. Also the boy I picked up from the street, his name is Lekan who use to be a street boy doing minor works on the street of VI to carter for his grandma,a lot of people were talking why I picked him up or try to help him and I don’t know ,I know what I saw, so I gave him a helping hand.
