Lady Mechanic Initiative

I was just reading through some of the submissions on Changemakers and found a gem of a project called Lady Mechanic Initiative.

From LMI's website: Lady Mechanic Initiative (LMI) is a non-governmental and non-profit organization founded by, Sandra Aguebor, the first female mechanic in Nigeria to promote sustainable positive change in the socio-economic circumstances of the poor and vulnerable people in Nigeria. Through its apprenticeship programme, Lady Mechanic Initiative teaches useful trades to the poor and vulnerable members of the society such as Orphans and Vulnerable Children, Street Children, Refugees, widowed women, ex-convicts and out-of –school youths, deportee sex workers and others.

Go to Changemakers and check out and give support for this project: http://www.changemakers.net/en-us/node/8677

Thanks for directing me to this. That's an amazing initiative! I just realized that I've heard about this before—back in November I read this story and it stuck with me! Take a look:
