Auditory impaired association trains PWDs on pastry making

BY Yemi Michael


An association for the auditory impaired in Plateau state has trained more than twenty persons with disabilities (PWDs) on pastry making. 

The three-day training was organised by the Plateau Deaf Women Association (PDWA) and was supervised by Development Exchange Centre (DEC) Bauchi, with support from Bread for the World Protestant Development Service (Brot) from Germany.

The event took place at the Women Educational Model Centre in Jos.

Patricia Joshua Gyang, chairperson, PDWA, stated that the aim of the training was to empower 20 PWDs in Jos north local government area.


She added that continuation of the programme will largely be determined by support from donor agencies and that the training will last six months.

Gyang called on Helen Mutfwang, wife of the state governor, and the ministry for women affairs and social development, to inform women with hearing impairment about their programmes in order to hand them a sense of belonging.

Jenebu Anyebu, monitoring and evaluation officer (M&E) for PDWA, challenged the beneficiaries to use what they have learnt well so that they can keep body and soul together.


She thanked their donors for supporting them.

During the event, PWDs learnt how to make doughnuts, puff-puff, fish rolls, egg rolls, cup cakes and meat pies.

Each participant was handed a certificate after the event.
