CUMI Empowers Over 200 Osun Indigents
As part of efforts to alleviate poverty in the society, the Christ United Ministries International (CUMI) and City Changers International empowered over 200 people from all local governments area of the state.
The empowerment was done in conjunction with other Christian communities in Osun State.
Speaking at the crusade and empowerment programme, the General Overseer of (CUMI), Apostle Mathew Oluwajoba, said the empowerment would further provide an intensive professional capacity building and opportunity for traders who were unable to get themselves established before as a result of a lack of funds to do so now.
He said the empowerment was aimed at implenting facilitation reforms in a coordinated manner.
Oluwajoba noted that with the empowerment, there would be room for self reliance and self dependent on the part of the beneficiaries who would in return contribute positively to the progress of the immediate environments they might found themselves.
The General Overseer promised not to relent in adding more values to the down trodden ones and the society at large.
"We are here for revival which was concluded yesterday, I felt that the state and Nigeria need a rival, we have concluded that yesterday and today, we are here for an empowerment programme for our people.
"We need to support people, people are suffering and it is not only government that should help the society, individuals and churches can also do that."
"Beside empowering hundreds of the indigents through training and sponsoring the setting up of those trained, people would go home with food stuff at the end of the exercise.
"We need to support people, people are suffering and it is not only government that should help the society, individuals and churches can also do that.
"Our church wants to support people especially small scale businesses by making people understand how they can function well by staying independent to achieve their goals.
"We have brought trainers with several entrepreneurship skills to teach people in the church skills. We give them money to trade and we have registered beneficiaries. We are also embarking on feeding the needy in society.
Speaking, Mrs. Covenant Oluwajoba, said, "We have great numbers of people who will benefit from the empowerment but we have over 200 people here. Beneficiaries must have a business plan and we are partnering with community bank."
