Youth Empowerment and Development Initiative
Play ˖ Educate ˖ Inspire



We are sorry to inform you that due to recent Ebola situation in the country, and following a directive from the Ministry of Health, we are suspending our SKILLZ FOOTBALL HOLIDAY CAMPS till further notice.

The Camp Program successfully ran for one week, graduating over one thousand participants across five active sites (Mushin, Ipaja, Apapa, Iju Ishaga and Lagos Mainland). We stay updated with the situation and remain in constant communication with the Ministry of Health to know when we can reopen the Camps. New dates will be communicated as soon as the situation changes.

We join the Ministry of Health and the Lagos State Government to emphasize the need for people to be alert and take proper measures to protect themselves and people around them from getting infected with the Ebola virus. As always, we thank you for your usual understanding and cooperation.
