'In line with our commitment to the upliftment of our communities' socio-economic status and backed by its success over the years, WEPSS has evolved into an intensive tailoring training program for the women.'
The INTELS Director said when WEPSS started, the annual intake was 100 women per annum, drawn mostly from the rural areas.
'WEPSS increased its annual number of intakes in 2017 to 200 students per annum extending this initiative to include rural women from different parts of the country.'
Mr Bellinato said WEPSS has been able to nurture the talents of women from both the urban and rural areas through their empowerment and employment and through encouraging the manufacture of 'Made in Nigeria' apparels of high-quality international standards.
In addition to training women in fashion design and tailoring, WEPSS also incorporates essential soft skill training such as personal effectiveness, teamwork and team building skills, goal setting and achievement, personal hygiene, health and fitness, among others.
Mr Bellinato said WEPSS has also developed an innovative waste-to-wealth policy, which it imparts on its students.
