Some of our Centres operate in areas where there is deep poverty, and the College should contribute to effeorts by various stakeholders to alleciate poverty is such communities. Thus, we should be relevant through the programmes we offer to various population in the Not In Education, Employment and Training (NEET) sector. These we need to do in the confienes of continuing to offer literacy and numeracy to the coommunities. As a Colllege we exits in the context of high unemployment rate in our country and we could not be obscured to this reality.

It is this vain, that we also support development of entrepreneurship to alleviate vicious cycle of poverty. In all our programmes delivery we should not lose sight of making a massive contribution to employment creation, innovation, poverty reduction and alleviation, social cohesion and deal with issue environment conservation.
