Firm empowers 126 women at Onne Port



A logistics firm at Onne Port, INTELS Nigeria Limited, has admitted 125 women in Rivers State communities for its 2018 Women Empowerment Programme Synergy Scheme (WEPSS).


Already, the company has acquired over 300 sewing and specialised machines built on a 5,000-square metres garment manufacturing factory at the Federal Lighter Terminal (FLT), Onne, for the training.



The women, according to a statement, were shortlisted from a list of 700 who applied for the job recently.


The training, which is a corporate social responsibility initiated by the company, was established in 2013 with the vision of empowering 5,000 community women over a 20-year period through training in fashion design and tailoring.


The company said in statement that it had empowered more than 500 women in the past through the project.



The Director of the company, Mr. Silvano Bellinato, explained that INTELS had remained resolute in enhancing the lives of people in its area of operation and community development.


At the commencement of the 2018 training session in Onne, the Head of WEPSS, Abhina Ajmani, said: “This is our fifth session.

The training is held once every six months. Most of the applicants are persons who just have their WASSCE qualification.


“It was really competitive because the slots are limited. This training is free and lasts for four months per set.


“Everything has been done to ensure the beneficiaries give their full commitment to acquiring skills that will empower them for life.”
