“The foundation since inception, worked towards actualising its vision by directly impacting young people through its unique programmes.

“The foundation also had the continued commitment of partners who shared the passion of raising generations of transformational leaders.

“After the training, we developed tracking system to monitor them after being trained,” Imoke said.

He said that the youths were trained on employable and entrepreneurship programme, community connect for youth leadership programme, leadership and community programme, among others.
