In this Global Goals week, K & TRC has carried out an empowerment program for adolescent girls and young women in one of her adopted communities; Ibulesoro Community which promote SDG 1- No Poverty.  The community adolescent girls were empowered with life building skills to make healthy decisions. It was great to also note that four under privileged young girls who were enrolled for an empowerment program six months ago by Kids & Teens Resource Centre with Bimmy Brown Fashion Academy were presented sewing machines during this community program by Khessed Receptive, USA. For the young women in the community, they were made to participate in several skills acquisition training.
