Nigeria: Foundation Trains Youth On Nation Building

New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation, in partnership with the United Religions Initiative-West Africa, is offering scholarships to young people in Nigerian universities and other tertiary institutions to participate in its 2013 Annual Youth Leadership Institute.

The training which has its theme: 'The Role of Young People in Nation Building' seeks to catalyse the emergence of a new generation of youth leaders who will participate effectively in forging a strong democratic, people-centered development and sustainable economic emancipation in Nigeria.

Emmanuel Ande Ivorgba, Executive Director of the foundation said "the programme seeks to foster, develop and support youth initiative, and a strong representational youth voice in the service and decision making process of our nation, and to engage youth as resources for peace, good governance, interfaith dialogue, towards the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)"

The training which is billed to hold in Jos, Plateau State from March 29 to 30 2013, will empower participants by supporting and facilitating the creation of youth-generated activities that promote self-worth, responsibility, intergenerational respect and communication. The organizers also made known that the scholarship covers feeding, accommodation and training materials.
