The event, which was tagged Youth Entrepreneurship and Empowerment Programme (YEEP) held at the Abuja and Imo camp Auditorium, was indeed a success as youths were not only given the opportunity to learn but they also got access to start up funds which was also the sole aim of the empowerment.
The Activate Success Int’l foundation Youth Entrepreneurship and Empowerment Programme is aimed at teaching corp members practical steps on how to become successful entrepreneurs, with the founder of Activate Success Int’l foundation, Love Idoko leading young professionals and celebrity role models to speak to corp members and empower selected corp members with start up funds.
Some of the major highlights at the just concluded empowerment program held at the Abuja and Imo State Orientation camp, was the access to grants by corpers to enable them start up their desired businesses.
Apart from the N1million grant given to corpers from Activate Success International, a N1.2million grant was also given to 12 corpers by one of the speakers. To crown it all, a N500, 000 grant was also given to 10 corpers by another speaker at the event, making the total sum 2.7million naira.
Business minded corpers were elated to have received not just the grant, but the opportunity to hear from young professionals in Business and also learn from them.
Speaking with Love Idoko at the event, she said, “I have a penchant for motivating people, there are business minded youths out there that are just looking for mentorship or business ideas as well as funds to start up their business and that’s why we are here. The purpose is not just to give grants, it’s also to empower and motivate as many youths as possible.” She appreciated the NYSC for making it possible and working very hard to empower the corp members as well.
Also speaking with Desmond Eliot, who was a speaker at the event, he said, “ Love Idoko is a true Nigerian. I love what the Activate Success Int’l Foundation Team is doing, it’s very pertinent we empower many of our youths; given the kind of society we live in today. I’m excited to be here and I look forward to other empowerment programs like this.”
