The first batch of our training center (15 girls, 1 boy) are  will graduate on the 29th of October 2021

The Leni Keller/DAC workshop was launched in October 2020 to support refugees in Mbiatok, Akwa-ibom state, Nigeria, and help them acquire skills that will enable them to take their destiny into their own hands. The curriculum implemented at the center entails courses on knowledge on self-development, language proficiency, business management and civic responsibilities. These carefully selected craft courses ensured that they acquire skills in fashion design , jewelry/accessories making, Hair styling and hair accessories production.
With their newly acquired skill-set, we are confident that they are ready to meet the current challenges of the society in which they find themselves and begin their journey of self-sustainability. This curriculum has proven to be efficient because the students did not only learn new instantly applicable crafts skills but they also developed new attitudes and mindsets appropriate for success.


  • A production center has been set up for graduating students to start production of fashion related items, hair accessories, jewelry and more for the market
  • To ensure efficient marketing we have contacted partners in Akwa Ibon State
  • Graduates who wish to start up personal businesses elsewhere will be supported with start-Up capital
  • A cooperative initiative to manage finances and ensure sustainability has been set up
  • Students who need to improve on their skills will be supported by the center through extra courses
  • Leni Keller/DAC workshop will be admitting 20 Students for the second batch (2021/2022) and 15 more students for the newly created IT department



This is a pledge to supporting the workshop and learning centre for those who will like to support the centre with other requirements to support their time as student at the DAC workshop.
