Nigeria: Sustainable Colony

The Ago Ireti community in Ondo state remains the only functional leprasorium in southwest Nigeria but the inmates depend on the stipends they get from Ondo state government for survival. A visit by my organization discovered that the inmates are skilled in on trade or the other but with no or low patronage by the public for fear of being infected. This project aims at training the about 20 inmates on how to use social media to market their goods and services and to make them less dependent on government. They will learn how to use mobile for phones for blogging
