This, she said, seeks to eliminate gender disparities and ensure equal access to education and vocational training by 2030.

Mrs Oso said that the training, taken off with 50 women will run for nine months.

She added that the training has been registered and is now being regulated by the Oyo State Adult and Non-Formal Education Agency, while the organisation has also recruited paid-facilitators and volunteers to ensure a successful outcome.

It will include practical, wellbeing and health activities like the training of women on how to make face masks and understanding of the value of face mask-wearing. In four weeks, we have registered 205 illiterate women in micro and small businesses for training.
