Oluponna Fish farming and Resource Foundation, OFFAR FOUNDATION, popularly known as OFFERCentre is a non-governmental organization started in the year 2006. A baby of the Catholic Archdiocese of Ibadan, it aims to express in concrete terms the social teachings of the Church.
Looking at the ugly socio-political and economic situation of our country, with the support of the Archbishop Emeritus, Most Rev. Dr. Felix Alaba Job, a vision was hatched to develop a Centre where youths from all works of life can be trained in Agriculture with particular emphasis on Fishery, computer operations and entrepreneurial skills. Luckily, this same vision is shared by the current Archbishop, Most Rev. Gabriel Ojeleke Abegunrin.
Our vision is to improve the standard of living of the people in rural communities and ultimately the protein consumption of the nation. We train and empower people, particularly indigent youths through skill acquisition in fish production and management, integrated farming, computer literacy and entreprenuership, irrespective of creed, race, tribe or gender. The main aim is to use the Centre to draw the youths from the precipice of the culture of death and empower them to live meaningful lives.
Education is a priceless gift to an individual & to humanity. The failure of education is manifested when a person's mind is trained but no part of the body is skilled.
This defect has become even more pronounced in a world where the human population vis-a-vis the employment opportunities available has created a logjam.
There are many young men & women with first class certificates carried up & down our streets that has not fetched them a source of livelihood.
OFFERCentre Institute of Agriculture is here to arrest this situation.
OFFERCentre Institute of Agriculture is a subsidiary of OFFAR Foundation and approved by the National Board for Technical Education, Osun State Mass Education Agency (OSMEA) and the Federal & State Ministry of Education as an Innovative Enterprise Institute.
She promotes skills for the teaching population of young Nigerians in the areas of Agriculture, Catering and other Vocational skills.
