With the rising rates of unemployment in Nigeria, the Chief Executive Officer, GMYT Fashion Academy, GMYT Foundation, has awarded free scholarships to prospective students across the country
worth over N10 million, which would be given to 10 students.
Nigeria’s unemployment rate translates to some 23.2 million people, the highest in at least 13 years, and the second-highest rate in the world.
Gmyt Fashion Academy is giving out free scholarships to 10 prospective students worth over N10 million through our foundation initiative (Gmyt Foundation) as you know we have a goal to train over 5000 youth before 2030, early this year, we gave over 20 scholarships worth over N20 million, this is just our own little way of reducing unemployment through fashion so that our community would be a better and safer place for us all to leave in and we are not stopping anytime soon.
