Challenge

Studies show that almost half of Nigeria's population (estimated at 203,637,931 as of Wednesday, January 08, 2020) are people less than 30 years of age. This critical section of the country's population need opportunities to participate in organized sports programmes. LSD Initiative, through her development project, aims to provide these opportunities and to help harness the power of youth to solve community issues and address important risk factors for crime, violence and disease.

Solution

LSD Initiative trains local youth to become coaches and trainers, increases opportunities in leadership and the possibility of long term involvement and work with LSD Initiative. Playing courts are constructed, game equipment provided, and sporting events and programmes delivered. Coaches, teachers and volunteers are also trained to help ensure project sustainability and to maximize the benefits to schools and local communities.

Long-Term Impact

The project aims to reach a minimum of 15,000 students and pupils in partner schools. Children and young people will be trained and empowered with sports and moral skills, health tips and basic materials for re-training and skills development. The project promises to reinforce the spirit of friendship and unity among young people who constitute a very active and consequently very volatile section of the Nigeria's population.
