Youths for Sustainable Development
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
Our enterprise seeks to promote goal Number 16 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which is to Promote Peaceful and Inclusive Societies for Sustainable Development, etc. and youth inclusiveness is what we seek most importantly. YSD is intent on redefining the place of Nigerian youths for the better. We are young people helping one another to actualize our God-given potentials. We want to change the prevalent order of poverty, unemployment and economic and political exclusion. It is for these reasons that YSD has come on board to be a pan-Nigerian organization that will always identified as a major force at the forefront for youth empowerment and participation in governance in Nigeria. It is our target that by the year 2020, a considerable number of Nigerian youths will be seen holding political positions and driving economic change in Nigeria. It is also our goal that by the year 2020, we will be able to point to a record number of young people who have been empowered through this organization.
Sustainability and future plans
We intend to make Youths for Sustainable Development (YSD) a going concern that will continue to engage in partnerships for the benefit of Nigerian youths. We therefore hope to source and continue to source for funding from development organizations, institutions and well-meaning individual sponsors. We also plan to venture practically into agribusiness and Information technology by establishing farms where we will employ young people for optimal production of agricultural produce from where we could generate revenue to fund our activities. We also intend to establish ICT centres for training young people. And we will continue to expand till our mission is accomplished.
