Man’s greatest fear is that of the unknown, and the future constitutes a considerable part of the unknown. Arguably, our young people are the leaders of tomorrow in every remarkable walk of life. Still, the question is, how prepared are they to navigate that future, especially in the face of the seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against them on all fronts in today’s world? This ranges from poor access to good quality, affordable, globally competitive education, mentorship, micro-credit, poor ease of doing business, and poor standard of living. All this helps paint a bleak future for our youths, making them see the glass as empty than half full, forcing them into despair.
Understandably, this hopelessness has never been greater than now and has witnessed the rising wave of our young minds and best brains leaving the country in droves for seemingly greener pastures across the globe. As a result, ‘Japa’ has become the most popular Nigerian buzzword on social media today for emigration signifying greater possibilities, opportunities, and hope for young Nigerians who dream of a better life. This has thrown up concerns across the public and private sectors. However, one organisation is doing its best to reverse the trend.
IHS Nigeria is a telecommunications infrastructure company in Nigeria and has decided to do more than watch helplessly on the sidelines with passing commentary on this growing phenomenon. It has opted to throw its hat into the ring by forging a sustainable development initiative called Project Empower to help give the youths hope of a better life with the assurance of a better future. Project Empower is a sustainability initiative enabling access to skills, knowledge and insights of professional veterans and entrepreneurial giants across critical industries. The program is designed to empower ambitious, high-spirited, determined young Nigerians in career and business by matching them with seasoned advisors across critical sectors. The project promises to reorient, retool, and reskill young minds with the armoury they need to conquer their desired businesses and careers.

A true game changer for the youths who wish to give our nation another chance. Project Empower is a crucible of possibilities for innovators, entrepreneurs, and professionals who want to do more than the norm to impact society by providing innovative solutions for businesses and communities that are transformational.
IHS Nigeria remains an unrepentant believer in project Nigeria and the potential of her youths to give the rest of the globe a run for their money. Little wonder, they’re putting their money where their mouth is to provide the youths with a sense of hope, with rare empowerment that will brighten their faces with the hope of a better future. IHS Nigeria will stay committed to its sustainable development practices in host communities through its four-pillar sustainability strategy woven around ethics and governance, education and economic growth, environment and climate change, people and communities, designed to uplift host communities.
