Challenge

New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation works to create sustainable social solutions through leadership development, Interfaith Dialogue and peacebuilding, etc. Our Leadership and Governance Program 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.

Solution

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.

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.
