THEME: STEERING YOUNG MINDS TOWARDS ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND GOOD LEADERSHIP
Prior to the COVID 19 pandemic Nigeria was ranked as the country with highest number of extremely poor people in the world. The Federal Government however debunked this report. This notwithstanding the unemployment rate in the country continues to grow and presently stands at 23.1% one of the highest globally. It was projected to hit 33.5% by the end of 2020.
The Nigerian National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) states that over one million, eight hundred thousand (1,800,000) persons get into the Labour market each year and approximately seven hundred thousand (700,000) of these are graduates. It further states that between 55 – 60% of graduating students each year will be unable to find jobs.
Hence, it has become increasingly urgent and important that today’s education should be anchored on the philosophy of entrepreneurship and job creation, transforming student mindset from job seekers to job creators unlike what obtains in the education sector today.
The Building Young Entrepreneurs (BYE) campaign is our contribution to the fight against unemployment in Nigeria.
A collection of seasoned entrepreneurs from around the world in collaboration with government agencies, corporate entities, well-meaning individuals and a host of others.
