EVERGREEN INITIATIVE FOR EMPOWERMENT AND CONSTRUCTIVE DEVELOPMENT was birthed as a result of the rising deficit in human and leadership capital development in Nigeria. Registered in Nigeria under the Companies and Allied Matters Act of the Federation as a Non-Governmental Organization on the 24th of July 2015, our core interests include Human Capital Development, Quality education, Leadership and Governance.
Without any doubt, it is no clandestine that young people in contemporary Nigeria and other parts of the world are faced with certain challenges ranging from social, political, legal, economic, emotional and psychological facets in everyday Life. This would serve as the rationale behind the organization’s dedication to the struggle for youth empowerment, enlightenment and constructive development via human capital development at all levels. To achieve our objectives, several brands have been put in place as tools in accomplishing our set out goal of realizing an Evergreen Nigeria.
Since the inception of the Initiative, we have been able to impact over 5000 people which consist majorly of displaced children and young people between the ages of 18-35 directly and indirectly.
- To provide quality education for less privileged children
- To equip our growing youth population with the necessary skills needed to become global players
- To advocate for good governance and youth inclusion in governance
- To create awareness about the need to invest in our human capital as a Nation and Continent
- To bring about empowerment (financial, political, entrepreneurial and intellectual) via human capital development amongst the Nigerian Youths.
- To build a valuable network of credible, creative, competent and committed young leaders
Our Theory of change
Our theory of change is rooted in our belief that if we invest in Human Capital Development, it will birth a properly equipped, educated and enlightened mass of people and will lead to a more productive society with a decline in criminal activities where everyone will be left to compete individually based on merit, character and competence, thereby bridging the gap of inequality and initiating social justice.
