Millennium Fellowship Project: Level Up against Poverty
Project L-UP is aimed at alleviating the rate of poverty through sustainable soft and hard skill acquisition programs and entrepreneurial development. In the course of the program, a lot of young people would be educated about the SDG especially the SDG which the project is centered on. It would serve as a platform where innovative mechanisms to tackle poverty and attain financial freedom would be discussed.
Furthermore, the average Nigerian youth needs to be financially literate and understand and imbibe the earning and saving culture.
