Host, Motivational speaker and founder Activate Success Int’l Foundation, Love Idoko led a team of young professionals and celebrities like Desmond Elliot (Nollywood Actor and Member Lagos State House of Assembly), Seyi Adekunle (CEO Vodi Tailors), Samson Itodo (Executive Director YIAGA AFRICA) and others to empower youth corps members in Abuja.
The event which was tagged Youth Entrepreneurship and Empowerment Programme (YEEP) held at the Abuja and Imo camp auditorium was indeed a success as youths were not only given the opportunity to learn but they also got access to start up funds which was also the sole aim of the empowerment.
The Activate Success Int’l Foundation Youth Entrepreneurship and Empowerment Programme is aimed at teaching corps members practical steps on how to become a successful entrepreneur, with the founder of Activate Success International Foundation, Love Idoko leading young professionals and celebrity role models to speak to corps members and empower selected corps members with start up funds.
Some of the major highlights at the just concluded empowerment programme held at the Abuja and Imo State Orientation camp, was the access to grants to corps members to enable them start up their desired businesses.
Apart from the 1 million naira grant given to corps members from Activate Success International, a 1.2 million naira grant was also given to 12 corps members by one of the speakers. To crown it all, a 500 thousand naira grant was also given to 10 corps members by another speaker at the event making the total sum 2.7million naira.
Business minded corps members were elated to have received not just the grant, but the opportunity to hear from young professionals in business and also learn from them.
Speaking with Love Idoko at the event, she said “I have a penchant for motivating people, there are business minded youths out there that are just looking for mentorship or business ideas as well as funds to start up their business and that’s why we are here. The purpose is not just to give grants, it’s also to empower and motivate as many youths as possible,” she appreciated the NYSC for making it possible and working very hard to empower the corps members as well.
Also speaking with Desmond Eliot, who was a speaker at the event, he said “ Love Idoko is a true Nigerian. I love what the Activate Success Int’l foundation Team is doing, it’s very pertinent we empower many of our youths given the kind of society we live in today. I’m excited to be here and I look forward to other empowerment programs like this.”
Samson Itodo and Mr. Seyi Vodi shared their success story and supported some corps members as well .
The successful event was also organised by Activate Success Int’l Foundation and it was made possible by the partnership of NYSC, FCMB and INTELIA.
