INTELS Nigeria Limited has donated a fully furnished and equipped fashion and tailoring shop to an indigene of Rivers State, Esther Wehere.
A statement by the firm said that Wehere emerged as the Best Graduating Student, 2022 Batch ‘B’ of INTELS’ Women Empowerment Project Scheme Synergy.
Speaking at the event, the Managing Director of INTELS Nigeria Limited, Mr Pasquale Fiore, said the donation to Wehere was in line with the company’s commitment to empowering women in the host communities and beyond.
According to him, when women are empowered economically, their families and the entire society benefit.
Fiore said in the past 10 years INTELS had trained about 1,800 women in tailoring and fashion design under its acclaimed WEPSS as part of its corporate social responsibility.
The INTELS boss added the fashion industry in Nigeria plays an important cultural role and contributes significantly to the country’s economy.
In her response, Wehere expressed appreciation to INTELS for training her and for donating the fully equipped facility to her.
Wehere said, “Since completing my training at the INTELS’ WEPSS centre, I have set up a fashion design firm and created a cloth line.”
