Youth Empowerment

Emike Foundation has been recognised for invaluable contributions in the way we encourage and support children and young people to take charge of their lives. In the ordinary course of our activities, we address their situations and then take action in order to improve their access to resources; and transform their consciousness through their beliefs, values, and attitudes.

We have equally supported government and other private initiatives, provided youth tools to collaborate and problem solve, brainstorm and reflect, encourage them to use their passions for good, and guide them to believe that their voice matters without judging or criticizing their ideas.

We are presently concluding plans for the establishment of a 500 Million Naira Endowment Fund, focused on providing a revolving credit for Covid-19 impacted and technology-challenged businesses. This 3-year  initiative will target young people and businesses principally located in semi-urban and rural communities in Edo State.
