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.

The 2018 Book Reading Day with the theme: “Library as a tool to Reviving the Culture of Reading among Young People” is aimed at creating a platform that will help revitalize the reading culture amongst young people in Nigeria through the effective use of Libraries. www.yishda.org

One way of stemming current unpleasant tides in our society is by raising our collective voices to demand what is rightfully and constitutionally ours. Young people have freedom to education as a basic fundamental human right, and government owes us the responsibility of adequately funding and equipping our educational institutions especially the public libraries. To this end, YiSHDA is making a call for the completion of the National Library Headquarters and proper funding of all public libraries in Nigeria. This will boost our accessibility as young people to various information sources both on and offline, thus enhancing our capacity to deliver as leaders of today. Information is power, readers are leaders. Read more in the caption below. #FundNationalLibraryProject now! #BuildTomorrowsLeadersToday www.yishda.org
