A skills acquisition centre established by the Fountain of Life Church, Lagos, Grace Springs Business and Vocational School (GSBVS), has been rebranded.
The school was founded by the church in 2009.
Speaking at the unveiling of a new logo for the school, Director of the training centre, Mrs. Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun, said the schoolÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new identity would impact on its performance and future exploits.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Today, we rebranding Grace Springs Business and Vocational SchoolÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s logo and brand with a vibrant new logo.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I believe we all love it and to also speak about who we are, what we do and where we see ourselves in the future.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœÃ¢â‚¬â„¢GSBVS started off in 2009 to empower challenged members of the Fountain of Life Church, but in 2016, we became a business (oriented entity) not just teaching vocational skills but entrepreneurship skills.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We realised that most of our students acquired skills but need thorough understanding of how to make money.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Currently, we are running 14 courses on the vocational side of our school covering food, beauty, bags, shoe-making and fashion designing among others.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“For the business and entrepreneurship part, we run 19 courses, which covers ideation, management, leadership, innovation and psychology of business.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Chairman of the schoolÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Governing Board, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, said the rebranding exercise would further project the centre for excellent performance and qualitative training of its trainees.
He said: Ã¢â‚¬ËœÃ¢â‚¬â„¢What we are doing today is a kind of restructuring of this skills acquisition school for better training and excellent performance through rebranding.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“As a pastor one comes across a lot of people with various spiritual needs, but what about the physical needs of people?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“So, the idea behind establishing a school like this is to be able to give the people what we cannot offer them in terms of money, so they can also be empowered to be self-reliant through skills and entrepreneurship, so they can also be blessings to others in the society.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
