“The training I got has really helped me to develop my vocational skills. I learnt bead making and ever since I came back to the village after the training, I have been generating income from making beads in the community. I hoping to expand on this as soon as possible so as to be able to reach out to more potential customers. Although I may not have made so much money, I know in a matter of weeks or months, my beads enterprise will grow in size”
"Life always gives us exactly the teacher we need at every moment. This includes early morning wake up, every moment of joy and depression, every quarrel, daily routine, every price of hardwork. In the long run, all the toils becomes worthwhile. Am now a farm manager at a farm in Abuja, overseeing several enterprises. Thanks to the training i received at OFFERCentre Institute of Agriculture, Oluponna, Osun State. Not only did they train me, they also gave me this job from which I earn enough to start a family, sustain them and help others too. Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence and determination. That I learnt at OFFERCentre"
"If there’s one word to describe my experience at OFFERCentreit is: ‘Incredibly Awesome’. Oh, thats two words! Truth is, one word is not enough to fully express what goes on at the Institute, neither are two. My advice to anyone going into the business of agriculture is: *Go learn the ropes from OFFERCentreInstitute of Agriculture, your business sense will forever be impacted for good. The interactions are not just practical, they are analytical as they are forward-looking. If you think you know agriculture, think again, because at OFFERCentreyou get to truly appreciate the import of what Richard Branson once said in a famous quote: “If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you’re not sure you can do it, say yes-then learn how to do it later”. Agriculture is an amazing opportunity and OfferCentre is the place to learn how to do it right"
"The training programme has changed my life I must confess. I can say I started from below zero level before the training, because I was actually leaving on borrowing, even as a graduate of Microbiology from Delta State University. I must thank the sponsor of this training programme, because since after the programme ended, I have been practicing what I was taught. I was given a smoking kiln for fish processing, and was also exposed to fish farming, particularly spawning. To God be the glory, I have been making money from spawning and fish farming now. I sell fingerlings to people, and even consult for people around. As a matter of fact, once you enter this street, just ask for Taiwo Eleja who sells fish), everybody knows me. I can now feed myself and can still afford to give out money for the upkeep of my family here, because my father is retired and doesn’t have enough to keep the family running. I once again thank them for this programme. May God bless them abundantly"
