Hi, gentlemen and ladies:
I am happy to find and join this forum. I have been looking for this type of forum for a while without success. Therefore, I am really, really excited to join you.
I am a Nigerian from West Africa but currently leaving in Baltimore, Maryland.
My main reason for joining this forum is my love of woodwork and would like learn this craft. Growing up in my country, we never had the opportunity to learn in school as people in United States and many Western countries.
I have now taken this love of woods and the craft to another level. I am interested in giving youths of my country the opportunity to learn this trade. I believe if the youths learn this craft, they could make a living out of it, thereby reducing unemployment and also have the ability to support their family. Do you remember this adage, "Give a person a fish and you feed him for a day but if you teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime"
So, I am in the process of starting a wood work school in Africa and I would need the assistance of a retired Woodwork and furniture teacher to volunteer his time in West Africa teaching the youths Woodwork and furniture crafts.
I can be reached at [email protected]
Once again, I am glad to join you and hope to find assistance and also learn from you.
