TESTIMONIES

Mrs. Adetunji Adebola

I thank the Oba Onitele of Itele for approving such an initiative in our community and most especially I thank the organizers of this event for this program. I was informed my BP is fine and it's such a great thing to know about our health once in a while. I have also been advised to watch my food intake, consume more fruits in order to live a healthy life. Once again, I really thank the organizers for this setup.”

Aliu Empowerment Program (AEP) is honestly the best that happened to me this year as far as my academics is concerned; and being opportune to be tagged a scholar, having successfully undergone certain self-building projects is one I will hold in high esteem. I seize this opportunity to express a heart-felt gratitude for the financial support from this great program. It is one that has made an indelible mark in my life. God bless AEP! I am indeed grateful!

Regal Tech academy UI/UX class was amazing and I learnt a lot of things which helped to start building my UX engineering skills. The design class was my first opportunity to learn design and I understood core concepts and was able to use design software Figma to design user interfaces. We had interactive sessions, amazing facilitators, weekly assessments, a final project and we had access to quality resources to continue learning with.
