Millennium Fellowship Project: TabsAfrique
TabsAfrique is the acronym of Take A Bold Step Africa. We are passionate about youths education, health and empowerment. We are partnered with African Union and working under the Millennium Fellowship to provide health, empowerment via education to youths in schools and communities.
Our objectives include enhancing Sustainable development goals 3, 4, and 8 by providing soft skills that are profiting to youths, enhancing good health of youths and improving their decision making process, morale and self-esteem through education.
Our goal is to reach out to 200 secondary school students and youths via the social media platform and at least two public secondary schools in our community in Lagos, Nigeria by organizing webinars and seminars.
We believe creating awareness, building skills and capacity as well as instilling the right mindset in young people through education and engagement sets them on a pedestal in achieving their goals quickly in life.
"Young people, when informed and empowered, when they realize that what they do truly makes a difference, can indeed change the world" - Jane Goodall. It is a known fact that Youths are the voice of the "present".
