NGO to empower 20,000 youths through vocational training
As part of its annual routine of bringing youths together for National Youth Summit, the Assistant National Co-coordinator, National Youth Summit, Elenwor Ihua of the Golden Heart Foundation, has disclosed that it is set to empower about twenty thousand youths on different vocations across the nation and Africa.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja, Ihua said the summit witnessed about 10 thousand participants during the 2014 Centenary edition, and its success story is responsible for the increase in number of this year’s participants, adding that, the summit has increased its capacity to achieve success.
“A lot of young men who participated in the previous edition have gone out to establish something for themselves. We received calls all over the nation from participants that they have never had it like that before.”
“ We have been organising the National Youth Summit for the past 7 years and the response keep increasing but this time around we are extending our hands of fellowship to other African countries because we want development to reach our African brothers,” Ihua said.
He however, commended the Africa Development Bank, (ADB), for its support even as he called on other Organisations to assist in building capacity for the training of Nigerian youths. He appreciated the goodwill and support from the Ministry of Youth and Development for issuing endorsement form to the summit to aid easy recognition of participants.
