Taking Youths off the Streets: The Katsina Experience

With an innovative Youth Craft village, the youths of Katsina State may have found a way out of loitering the streets, begging for arms or being used as political thugs and dumped by politicians thereafter

A unique village in the state capital, Katsina, is absorbing youths in hundreds and turning them into useful members of the society. Upon graduation from an innovative school therein, they become self-employed and employers of labour.
Katsina state, within the short period of time the school came into existence has even started saving money out of the Youth Craft Village experience. THISDAY gathered that all the solar panels and poles that beautify the state, starting from the Ring Road that goes round the state capital and all the headquarters of the Local Government Councils were actually constructed by the students of the village.

Besides the fabrication of poles and solar panels, which are better than imported ones, the students also engage fabrication of generating sets. Some car engines are even converted to electricity generating sets and even sound proved for interested individuals. – http://www.thisdaylive.com/articles/taking-youths-off-the-streets-the-katsina-experience/129995/
