Most of Nigeria’s youth (15‐24 year olds) are coming of age without adequate education or employment opportunities. There is a wide ranging need for skills generation, recreation facilities, music/drama/sports centres and youth corps to provide service to communities.
Support of youth is one of the four key priorities for Mayflower. It is hoped to raise US$1,000,000 per annum for a period of 5 years to provide support for the empowerment of youth in Ebute-Metta. Per annum it is hoped that up to 5,000+ youth will be empowered. Empowered youth will not only create extra economic benefit for themselves and their families, they are also less likely to be involved in criminality and corruption.
