Our Programs

We focus our energy on  four thematic areas. However, we do engage in other areas, but these four are our priority. Each quarter of the year, we work on a project aimed at fostering one of the issues listed below. The thematic areas are distributed throughout the year

ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

Only through decent employment opportunities can young peopleget the chance to work themselves out of poverty. Focusing on youth is a must for any country.”                                                                                                    — Juan Somavia Director-General, International Labour Organization

This is about ensuring that young people are gainfully employed. We employ various strategies to achive this,while focusing our energy on equipping young people with entrepreneurial skills. Our programs here include

Entrepreneurship

Microcredit

Workforce Empowerment

EDUCATION

“The preparation of youth for work and life is very low…Education opportunities must be made more relevant to the needs of all young people as learners and future workers, parents, and citizens.”                                                                                                                — 2007 World Development Report

Education is a very vital factor for development. No matter the efforts we put in for to achieve development, lack of education will always be an appreciable limiting factor. To invest in education young people is an invest to ensure sustainable development.

We provide scholarships to selected underprivileged youths to foster their education giving preference to females who are often relegated as regards education

We organize seminars to keep youths abreast with various scholarship and education opportunities in and out of the country. We also assist them in the application processes

ICT

Lack of ICT  skills in today’s world renders one incompetent and irrelevant. We provide ee basic ICT training to youths who cannot afford the cost of a typical ICT training. We also train them on how to use the internet so that via it, they can have access to Education, Healthcare and many other opportunities. Our programs include

Community Based ICT training centres

Community Cyber cafes                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

“Often, social progress doesn’t come from governments looking down, directing change. It comes from communities, families, and individuals looking up, driving society forward themselves,fueled by nothing more than an idea or instinct to do good. It comes from civic engagement.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           — Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan

Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.

Communities with the greatest and most diverse citizen participation are often resilient and strong.To build this kind of community, the youths must have a part to play.

This programme seeks to promote youth participation in building  their communities Our key value is that youths who have benefited from our programmes Pass It On on to others.

We help youths sprout their ideas into projects geared at empowering their communities. We also organize youth forums to keep youths informed on the MDGs, keep them abreast on the development of the MDGs and  also promote youth participation in accomplishing the MDGs
