Transforming Nigerian Youths Program for young Nigerians

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

The Young Africa Works-Mastercard Foundation, in collaboration with the Enterprise Development Centre at Pan-Atlantic University, is bringing this initiative to Nigeria.

EDC is collaborating with the Foundation to strengthen the capacity of 40,000 MSMEs in Nigeria, with a special emphasis on agriculture and creative sectors, particularly women-led companies. The training will be offered through EDC’s online learning platform and IVR (Interactive Voice Response), allowing all learners to participate in the classes wherever they are, at any time.

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.

  • Personalized Plan for your Business Growth
