What will you be doing on Saturday July 5, 2015?

The United Nations, at its General Assembly in November 2014, declared 15 July as World Youth Skills Day.

YEDI is proud to be a part of a global recognition and promotion of World Youth Skills Day. That day has been set aside by the United Nations as the World Youth Skills Day. Here’s a message from Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary-General:

"On this World Youth Skills Day, let us renew our resolve to invest more in empowering young people. When we do, they can better advance the broader mission of the United Nations for lasting peace, sustainable development and human rights for all."

At the core of our programs and activities are empowerment and development of young people living in disadvantaged communities in Nigeria. At YEDI, we are always looking out for ways to empower young people because they are “almost three times more likely to be unemployed than adults and continuously exposed to lower quality of jobs, greater labor market inequalities, and longer and more insecure school-to-work transitions,” according the United Nations.

Keep a date with us as we will be unfolding high-impact activities targeted at young people across our project sites.
