She added that it also underscores the Group’s commitment to empowering lives and engendering economic growth.

According Awosika: “Having been a part of the development of seven spas in the past six years we have noticed a gap in the market for professionally trained and knowledgeable therapists. Conscious Wellness is here to stay and thus we need more hands.

“The launch of the training institute signifies our commitment to job creation and training expert therapists to fill the demand in the sector. The launch of the franchise further signifies our passion to democratize wellness and to bring ORIKI spas to communities across Africa and the world.”

Speaking on the OTI, the company said that the institute will be open to intending and practicing therapists, including management staff, that are not employees of ORÍKÌ but want to be their own bosses.

In addition, experienced spa therapists seeking to be employed by ORÍKÌ can apply to join the program.

According to Awosika, a primary motivation for the institute is to ensure the economic independence of women through skill acquisition training as well as the promotion of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 4, 5 and 8.
