President Opening Thought

It is with great delight and pleasure as we welcome you, our distinguished guest to one of our online platform and we also express our sincere appreciation for your interest in our work.

In this ever-changing world, YiSHDA believes that if young people are provided a better platform to understand themselves better and also understand the call to leadership; no doubt, young people will rise up to creating and build a better tomorrow today. A lot of young people in Nigeria and Africa at large are creative and innovative but they need a better platform to excess leadership roles. It is also time to encourage more young people to step into leadership roles, to identify problems that require solutions, to apply innovative thinking and problem-solving skills to those problems and come up with solutions. We can’t wait for the government to solve all the problems because there too many of them. We need the youth to get involved.

YiSHDA is a resourceful organization that offer high quality delivery of programs to beneficiaries and leverages on the wealth of skills and experiences of our dynamic and committed team members for project/program implementation. We have also partnered with reputable organizations across Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia, South Korea, and the USA. YiSHDA implemented the Beyond Access Project across 16 Northern State in Nigeria and has built a network of 35 public libraries with support from the International Research & Exchanges Boards (IREX)-USA. Through YiSHDA’s continuous partnership with LitWorld (New York), Global G.L.O.W (California) and Nigeria Reads, YiSHDA is taking action to building the capacity of young girls across Kaduna, Jos, Nasarawa, Niger, Akwa Ibom and the FCT in a more sustainable way by increasing access to basic education through the establishment of Reading Clubs (Litclub).

YiSHDA looks forward to working and partnering with organizations in creating sustainable platforms that will seek and address issues in the community and the society at large.

Yesterday the 7th May, 2018, YiSHDA and HipCity Hub signed a two (2) years Memorandum of Understanding that will ensure both parties work together to achieve their common goals and vision, streamlined to helping young people find their footing in the path to creating a developed and sustainable future for themselves and society at large. The founder of HipCity Hub Mr. Bassey Bassey in his reaction to the partnership said, ' We do not have a war chest to draw from, but we have over the years build our capacity in planning, designing and implementation of projects. We desire that in the next two years, we can both look back and be grateful that we did this. Thanks for opening your doors to us and it sure will be a rewarding experience'. While the CEO and Co founder of YiSHDA Mr. Joseph Emmanuel Yaba said, 'we believe in partnership as no one person can do it all. The human development sector is one that we believe to be complimentary and not competitive. As the saying goes,; Two good heads are better than one. As such, capable young people must come together with their ideas, creativity and innovation to influence development for our nation, that we can sustain'. We wish us a successful and rewarding partnership. Watch out for more on this page. #BuildingTomorrowsLeadersToday www.yishda.org

There are two kinds of people. There are those who live life by default. Most people fall into this category. They just go with the flow. They move with the crowd till they get lost in it. They want to change their lives, but they end up whining about it. Then there's another category. These are the ones who live by design. They create their world. And though it's a more fulfilling way to live, the path to it is hard, even dangerous. They are the ones who swim against the tide. #YiSHDA in partnership with #PrimeDuxLtd on 4th May 2018 at the conference room of FCT City Library, organized a training session where young people can become self-aware to discover and rediscover their potentials so as to pitch their career to a more profitable venture through learning the "Art of Making Money". The Roaming Entrepreneur (TRE) event, was amazing! The teachings, breakout sessions, laughter, questions, and yes, poetry, was super cool. At #YiSHDA we believe in building tomorrow's leaders today for a more sustainable and fulfilling future.
