World Bank reported unemployment in Nigeria to be estimated at 22% while youth unemployment is significantly higher – 38%. Asides from the detrimental effect of a nation’s economy, unemployment and poverty are also the primary causes of substance abuse and addiction in teenagers and young adults.
“We cannot always build the future for our youth but we can build our youth for the future.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
At ASO Global Foundation (AGF), we believe in the youths being the agents of change, which is why we are passionate about our training programs geared towards eliminating inefficiency in the community. The ability to make the best use of time and resources has been proven to curb crime and reduce hunger in the society.
Our mission is to hone the skills of the youth, support and develop future entrepreneurs to enhance job creation and reduce the rate of unemployment.
Our Objective is to conduct quarterly programs yearly towards training the youths and improving their skills in:
- Entrepreneurship Development Training
- Shoe & Bag making
- Soap making
- Farming (Arable & Pastoral)
- Others (ETC.)
The duration of these programs differ from each other as some skills require longer training than others, but the choice of skill is determined by their individual passion.
