Update

In 2023, we identified and engaged 20 young women in Apo- Duste in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nigeriafor the 2023 Street Business School's cohort (Nasara Group), project activities commenced but Unfortunately, subsequent classes had to be postponed due to security concerns in the region. Recognizing the importance of participant safety, SI4DEV prioritized the well-being of the cohort members.

Change in Location:

In response to the delays and ongoing insecurity, SI4DEV has made the decision to change the location of the SBS classes. The new commencement date is set for February 2024. This adjustment aims to provide a secure and conducive environment for the participants to fully engage in the program.

SI4DEV remains committed to the success of the Nasara Group and is actively working to ensure a smooth transition to the new location. The organization values the safety and well-being of the participants and believes that this change will contribute to a more positive and secure learning experience.

SI4DEV appreciates the understanding and cooperation of the Apo Duste community and the Nasara Group members during these challenging circumstances. The organization looks forward to the renewed commencement of the SBS classes in February 2024, fostering economic empowerment and sustainable development within the community. SI4DEV appreciates the donations recieved so far.
