Challenge

In recent times, based on the poverty line of $1.90 per day, 46.5% of Nigerians are extremely poor, with the World Poverty Clock naming Nigeria, 'the poverty capital of the world'. According to the World Poverty Clock (2019), extreme poverty in Nigeria is increasing by almost six persons per minute. The reality of the nation is that corruption, unemployment and inequalities have destroyed the nation's economic framework, causing it to be the poverty capital of the world .

Solution

The foundation will invest in girls' education. Educating girls is proven to have both economic returns and intergenerational impact. We will also invest in health and wellbeing. We will do our best to expand economic opportunities and embrace technology, because investing in human capital potential and creating jobs for women and young people, increases financial access and opportunities in rural communities, and advancing technological innovation.

Long-Term Impact

There would be economic growth and job opportunities and hence stronger demand for labour, the main and often the sole asset of the poor. In turn, increasing employment has been crucial in delivering higher growth. Strong growth in the global economy in the next 10 years means that the majority of the world's working-age population is now in employment. Since 2012, SOHF has provided a holistic approach to help the poor and homeless overcome the scars of extreme poverty and excel in life.
