EDC MasterCard Transforming Nigerian Youths Program

EDC MasterCard Transforming Nigerian Youths Program

The Transforming Nigerian Youths program intends to build a network of entrepreneurial and management change-makers, particularly youths and women in Nigeria’s Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) sector.

This initiative is presented to Nigeria by the Young Africa Works-Mastercard Foundation in collaboration with Pan-Atlantic University’s Enterprise Development Centre.

EDC is teaming up with the Foundation to build the capacity of 40,000 MSMEs with special focus on agriculture and creative sectors especially women-led businesses in Nigeria. The training will be delivered via EDC’s online learning platform and IVR( Interactive Voice Response) to enable all learners to take part in the lessons on the go wherever they are.

The following are the core objectives of the program:

  • To completely transform the mindset of youths in Nigeria to become more entrepreneurial, and to equip them to be self-employed or job creators.
  • To create market access and provide support services to existing business owners especially those being run by young people.
  • Change the way learning or information is received in Nigeria through EDC Beam.
