Construction of Women’s Training Centre
Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary, Ogbomoso
Status: Under Construction
Project Managers: Dr. Ruth Oyeniyi and Kevin Reece
The construction of the Women’s Training Centre at the Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary began several years ago under the leadership of Dr. Ruth Oyeniyi, who is a professor at the seminary and its Director of Women’s Services. The facility is being built in stages as funds are raised.
The Centre will meet great needs for seminary students and their families. Many of them have families, and have left home towns, church positions and business careers to attend seminary; thus they no longer have those incomes. As a result, they struggle to be able to pay the seminary fees, and even to provide food for their families.
The Women’s Training Centre will be a place where the wives of students will receive training in a variety of micro businesses such as sewing, making jewelry, farming and other ventures so they can generate income for their families.
NFW has partnered with the seminary and Dr. Oyeniyi since 2016 in the phased construction of this vital building. Our financial support has helped bring the structure from digging the foundation to a roofed building. Windows and electrical wiring are in; doors, plastering and furnishings await completion. Your continued contributions will help complete this important facility, which will provide for the livelihoods of these dedicated families.
