The items donated, which were procured by her pet project, Ugo’s Touch of Life Foundation (U-TOLF), include weaving machines, tools for shoe making and cosmetology, among others. Some of the beneficiaries had been trained by the foundation as bakers, shoe makers (cobblers), phone repairers and tailors, but could not set up their businesses because of lack of funds.

She disclosed that the beneficiaries were randomly selected from the rural communities without any form of influence or prior identification, stressing that they were selected based on their areas of training.
