The Gweimen Centre in Kwoi, Nigeria currently operates several programs providing assistance to widows, orphans, and vulnerable children.
Vocational Training for Widows
The Gweimen Centre seeks to help develop self-sufficiency through vocational training. Current training programs include gaining skills in Tailoring, Knitting, Baking, Perfume making, and Soap-making. Graduates of the vocational training program receive a tool related to the skill they specialized in to help them start an income-generating business. Recent graduates of the program received a sewing machine, a knitting machine, or a locally made oven that uses charcoal to bake bread.
Aid for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs)
HIV/AIDS Educational Campaigns and Community Outreach
Gweimen Centre staff regularly engage in community outreach, including participating in health education programs, community HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns, visiting to local districts to discuss conflict resolution, hosting football matches to educate people about HIV/AIDS, and collaborating with local schools.
