New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation will train and empower 5000 youth with capacities to emerge from a life on the streets, drugs and dysfunctional families, to becoming leaders capable of helping themselves and their communities. We are leading a movement that connects youth, educators and communities and empowers them to transform themselves from recipients of information and resources into valuable, contributing members of their communities.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation works to create sustainable social solutions through leadership development, Interfaith Dialogue and peacebuilding, etc. Our Youth Leadership Institute seeks to catalyze the emergence of a new generation of youth leaders who will participate effectively in forging a strong democratic, people-centered development and sustainable economic emancipation in Nigeria.
How will this project solve this problem?
5000 Youth will receive training in Leadership, Peace building, communication skills and interpersonal relationship, etc and will actively participate in our Community Development and Peacebuilding Projects, especially in selected crisis areas in Northern Nigeria. Youth will apply skills learned to engage their communities using periodic magazines, soccer tournaments, cultural, arts, music and drama projects, local radio/Television, etc.
Potential Long Term Impact
In a country like Nigeria, where youth are the most valuable and yet overlooked assets, the project will educate and train 5000 youth leaders in 2 years to become peace advocates and change agents by leading innovative projects designed to reach their peers in their communities.
