The Caleb Danladi Foundation has commenced the construction of a skills acquisition centre in Kaduna State aimed at supporting the poor, widows, school dropouts, and other vulnerable groups. The groundbreaking ceremony took place over the weekend at Kafanchan Road, opposite Primary School, Samban Gida in Kwoi, Jaba Local Government Area.


During the event, the foundation’s Founder and CEO, Capt. Caleb Danladi, explained that the centre would primarily benefit the less privileged, including school dropouts, students, widows, youths, and other vulnerable individuals. Named after his late younger sister, Dorcas Danladi, who passed away a month ago, the centre aims to fulfill her dream of helping the underprivileged.


Danladi highlighted the significance of the Dorcas Danladi Memorial Skills Acquisition Centre as a historic project for his family, the community, and the state. “Just a month ago, my sister passed away. One of her passions was to create a skills acquisition centre to help others, but she couldn’t achieve this dream. We decided to build this centre in her memory,” he said.


He noted that all necessary measures for the project’s sustainability had been considered from the planning stage. “This project aims to make a meaningful impact on the entire community, local government, and state,” Danladi stated.


The foundation emphasizes the growing importance of entrepreneurial and skills acquisition training both nationally and internationally. “This centre will play a significant role in empowering youths and women with essential 21st-century skills, contributing to community development and achieving development goals,” he added.


Danladi also mentioned plans for a dedicated computer centre to help youths prepare for JAMB and acquire technical skills. “Although training at the centre will be free, women who need equipment will receive assistance with a discounted fee as part of our sustainability plans,” he stressed.


There are future plans to establish similar centres in the Kagoma chiefdom and other local government areas in northern Kaduna State and other parts of Jaba LGA. Additionally, the centre will include a borehole to address water scarcity issues in the community.


The project is scheduled for completion and commissioning by December 2024. Danladi expressed his commitment to collaborating with the government and international agencies for future training sessions once the foundation becomes operational.
