The Initiative aims to increase sustainable economic growth and prosperity for women, men and children in Nigeria, by increasing job opportunities and entrepreneurial capacities of youth. Nigeria is home to more than 75 million youth, out of a population of 180 million, and has a youth unemployment rate of 35%.
The Initiative seeks to strengthen the capacity of government policy makers, civil society organizations working with youth, and formal and informal technical vocational training institutions, to work together in a coordinated manner to increase employment, selfemployment and secure livelihoods based on natural resources.
The Initiative works with NYSC to produce the conditions needed to develop an economy based on innovation and business skills. Initiative activities include annual training of at least 1,000 fresh graduates and interns in entrepreneurship and creating 1,000 youth-owned micro and small enterprises.
