Project Aim:

To provide training for local youth, getting them off the street and into the classroom

The Challenge

60% of Nigeria’s 210 million people are under the age of 25. This speaks of Nigeria’s tremendous potential for both development and crisis. Often when crisis occurs it’s the uneducated and unemployed youth who are quickly swept up in the violence. Muslim and Christian youth need both education and opportunities if Nigeria is to improve.

The Solution

Our Vocational Training centre provides a solution. Our fees are minimal and we encourage youth of all backgrounds and religions to participate. We have more than 15 certified courses available at our permanent site near Jos. Many of the youth who pass through our school find the opportunity to escape their situation, find jobs and encourage their peers to do the same.
