Project Empower: The Initiative Giving Our Youths Assurance

September 2, 2022

In recent times, the latest buzzword in our country has become the inimitable ‘Japa’. It signifies an unstoppable ambition by our youths to leave Nigeria by any means possible to distant lands as their only hope and means for survival for a better life. Tales and wishes of ‘Japa’ to distant lands flood timelines on social media and dominate conversations by young people who can contribute their intellectual quota to the sustainable development of our nation. While many have jubilated on social media as they bid Nigeria goodbye, IHS Nigeria is doing its best to reverse the trend by giving youths at home the hope to soldier on despite the seemingly real or imaginary odds stacked against them.

IHS Nigeria is committed to the sustainable prosperity of individuals and host communities to ensure economies thrive. This has informed the establishment of Project Empower to ensure our young people are better skilled and more resourceful to further their dreams of a better life. In ensuring we do not lose our very best, Project Empower is pooling the best of minds together, seasoned men and women with remarkable business and industry accomplishments across ten industries in Nigeria to mentor, skill and help scale businesses and business ideas of over 500 young entrepreneurs at various stages of their entrepreneurial growth.

These mentors and mentees will be matched based on select criteria by the Project Empower Team for optimum engagement. This sustainability project promises to be a continuous effort by IHS to reposition youths for success and entrepreneurial prowess in a manner that meets global best practices, worthy of investment and seed funding by notable investors.

Aspiring mentees and mentors can visit www.projectempower.org today to get started as an advisor or beneficiary. Project Empower is a melting pot of great ideas, advisors and entrepreneurs who seek to forge the innovation and transformation needed across businesses, industries and societies. It’s an opportunity you do not want to miss.

IHS remains an organisation committed to impacting businesses and communities with a focus on young individuals through its four-pillar sustainability strategy woven around ethics and governance, education and economic growth, environment and climate change, people and communities, tailor-made to suit the needs of local host communities.
