Thought
Habits support the intelligence just as a way of living leads to a way of life.

Saint Augustine:

«Of necessity we are sorrowful when those whom we love leave us in death... Our weakness bears us down, but our faith bears us up. We sorrow over the human condition but find our healing in the divine promise.» (Sermon 172)

A Project of Hope in Northern Nigeria


Jos - Nigeria
February 2013

The Augustinian Vocational Centre in Katako Jos was officially launched on February 26, 2013. The Centre is an initiative of the Order of Saint Augustine and the NGO APURIMAC ONLUS NIGERIA on behalf of the Hausa community. Already 208 women and young people have been enrolled to receive training in various skills such as tailoring, computer technology, knitting and shoe-making. 70% of the youth enrolled are between the ages of 18 and 35 and the remaining 30% are men and women 35 to 48 years of age. Training sessions, which are held five days a week over a five month period, must in some cases be conducted in both morning and evening sessions due to the high number of applicants.

Taking part in the dedication ceremony were the Chief Imam of the Platea State Central Mosque; Sheik Balarabe Dau'd Professor Nelson Ochekpe as representative of the Italian Ambassador and Fr. John Abubakar OSA, Prior Provincial of Nigeria, as well as many guests, NGO members, private corporations which have lent their support to the project, Plateau State Government Officials, and Hausa leaders.

This initiative, which assists predominantly Muslim women through training for various professions, is seen as a significant bridge-building project that will promote peace and greater understanding among the Christians and Muslims of Northern Nigeria.
