A total of 25 artisans drawn from the different parts of the country attended the training that provided them with basic skills to process hides and skins to crust leather using  vegetable (mimosa powder) and  mineral (basic chromium sulphate) tannins as tanning agents. The crust leather produced can make sandals and other simple leather products at that stage.

At the end of the training certificates were distributed to the trainees and feedbacks from the latter were very positive, confirming full attainment of the training objectives.
