I hail from a community that is mainly agrarian at the subsistence level. A family that can afford three square meal in such a community is considered privileged. The absence of companies/industries in my community basically forces the youths (those at the productive age) to seek for job in the neighbouring towns.
The few youths that are left in the village are those who do not have the opportunity of seeking for greener pasture outside of my community
Unfortunately however, those who fall in this bracket constitute a meaningful population of the youths. The burden has always been on me on how to empower this sizable population of youths into meaningful venture. The most vulnerable in this group are the girls who are easily lured into prostitution in a bid to make ends meet. Cases of unwanted pregnancy abound as a result of this. These hapless girls exemplify true cases of dream cut short.
My dream for a non profit organization steams from the peril of such girls .My personal experience and up bringing have exposed me into a position of offering valuable advices to people in difficulties times. Most times, when I offer advice to such people it always produce positive results
Subsequent upon the various skills that I acquired as a result of the circumstances of my upbringing, I decided to give back to the society such skills like soap making baking, confectionaries, etc.
I will feel safe in a community void of crime, I will be secured in an atmosphere devoid of drug, I will be happier when girls will not resort to prostitution as a means of livelihood .The alarming unemployment level in my community inspired me into giving out the little I can afford in skill acquisition, empowerment, advice and otherwise.
Fortune smiled on me on marrying my heartthrob and better half, I quickly run to him for advice on how to scale through huddles of life ,school, profession etc.
I hope to effectively and efficiently address the issue of unemployment and subsequent empowerment of the teaming unemployed youths in my community.
