How do you motivate the youths living in developing world for the better future?

I strongly believe in evidence based studies so I constantly carry out research to know the needs of the youth, organize youth development programs where motivational speakers and life coach with proven record of success are invited to speak first hand to them. We conduct skill development trainings for youths in partnership with other organizations. I also use avenues like football tournaments for youths to show case their gift and some are already encouraged through that to get a defined path of life for themselves building life career in Football and other life's ventures.

We annually organized the event for youth and jazz through which we have discovered talents who are now doing well in big cities like Lagos and Abuja in their god given talents.
