As part of efforts to deepen local content as well as empower Nigerian youth, Unity Dolls has signed an MOU with the Lagos State Technical and Vocational Education Board (LASTVEB) to support the novel course.
In 2012, Auldon Toys started the Unity Girl doll project, a collection of 14-inch dolls, each representing Nigeria’s three largest tribes. The product is been created to deliver an empowering social message to girls around Nigeria and the world at large.
The partnership is intended to empower graduate apprentices of the board with sustainable source of livelihood immediately after graduation, by making them gainfully engaged.
Also the initiative, under the Graduate Apprenticeship Programme in dress making, the graduates have been hired to make 40,000 pieces of unity doll dresses for the entire project in batches of 5,000.
