I am a past student of WAYE Foundation, I graduated from the Fabric Dye Department the skills that I learnt is unbelievable and am grateful because today I earn money (a living) for myself. I will like to specially thank all my instructors and directors at WAYE most importantly the founder Ngo Talatu Jang for allowing God to put such a vision in her mind to bless us
Since I came to WAYE on the 12 of August, the lectures are very empowering and am grateful to WAYE Foundation because of the various programs they have here anyone who will put his mind to what is done here will certainly be on the part to greatness. What WAYE has here will set the nation on a part to development and will certainly help to reduce poverty in our land. Those Six sets that have graduated from here I believe they are currently enjoying the benefit and we as the seven set will make the most of the skills being taught here I am currently in the footwear department and I have learnt a lot here so far, from making different patterns of shoes, bags, etc to actually making the shoes. After graduating from here I intend to take this skill that I have learnt and put it to work, I intend to teach others also. What can I say other than a big thank you to Ngo Talatu Jang and WAYE Foundation for giving me this opportunity!
My name is Nankwet S. from Mangu LGA am here in the craft department WAYE Foundation. Am trusting God to give me the wisdom and knowledge to acquire the skills being taught. I want to thank our instructors for the hard work and patience in teaching us all seeing that we all are very different here yet they carry us along. Am amazed at the things that am learning here from making Bags with beats and nylon to making flower pots, necklace etc. It is my prayer that after leaving here that all of us will be able to stand on our feet and run our own businesses above all, we should be able to also transmit this same knowledge to others. Finally, I want to say a big thank you to our founder Ngo Talatu Jang for the vision to set up a place like this, may God continue to bless her, guide and keep her in Jesus Name
