The Aminu Magashi Garba Foundation (AMG) in collaboration with the Department of Skills Acquisition and Training and Centre for Technology Development (CTD) have commenced the training of 10 dropout youth in Kaduna.
The program which started Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, aimed at giving the dropout youth, within the age of 12-15, a skill on automobile repairs.
The dropout youth were sponsored by the AMG Foundation to undergo eight weeks training and four weeks internship at Panteka market.
It was gathered that the sum of N1.2million was paid by the foundation to give the training to the youth.
AMG hold on the belief that the skill will give them automatic job, improve their economic status, promote peace and help in addressing the challenge of insecurity in our society.
The Daily Reality recalls how AMG Foundation donated the sum of one million naira to the Youth Academy Initiative (YOSPIS) Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022 for similar activities.

At the end of the event, philanthropists from Northern Nigerian states were urged to emulate Dr Aminu Magashi in rescuing the future of the youths who are now the major culprits of phone-snatching – a menace that ravaged many states in Nigeria.
