“We chose Youthpreneurs because any county that is notharnessing the potentials of their youths is sitting on a keg of gunpowder. Thisaspect is often ignored in Nigeria, because most youths have some specialskills but do not know how to harness them. If we start engaging them, theywill make a lot of sense out of their lives”
“We’ll also be teaching participants how to collaborate,because it is very important in life. One man’s business never goes far, but whenyou have exceptional people coming together to something, it is always loud”,she said.
Njideka Anyanwu further stated that the basic thing willbe knowledge before money, because people with money and no single knowledge ofhow to spend it, end up wasting it.
“Participants will get to learn the basics of sellingtheir works from the comfort of their homes” she added.
