Youth Initiative for Sustainable Human Development in Africa (YiSHDA) is a not-for-profit and non-governmental organization with an aim to inspire and educate young people by building their capacity, leadership and responsibility skills. It is also our mission to advocate for policies and programs that have the potential to impact positively the lives of young people especially in the areas of Education, ICT4Development, Civic Engagement and Environmental Sustainability and Small Business Development
Founded in the year 2010 and registered with the Federal Government of Nigeria under the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in 2013 with registration certificate number CAC/IT/No 60340. Our organization has carved a niche for itself in the design and implementation of programs targeted at children and young people with special focus in Education, Development, Empowerment and Mentorship.
As a youth organization, we believe that young people must be at the centre of Sustainable Development Agenda by promoting and coordinating relevant programs with an aim to contribute positively to the well-being of the society. We understand that young people have a tremendous deposit of unexploited knowledge and skills that can be useful to their wellbeing, immediate community and the society at large.
Our Core values
Resourcefulness: We provide the leadership and guidance needed to manage young people’s development.
Empathy: YiSHDA consists mainly of young professionals who understand the challenges facing the society. This is a plus for us in YiSHDA because we are able to put ourselves in the shoes of the young person we intend to influence.
Skills: Young People have a tremendous deposit of unexploited knowledge and skills that can be useful to their wellbeing, immediate community and the society at large. We therefore evaluate the talents and level of skills they have and how they can harness it to realize their goal.
Trust: We take full responsibility for our action to sustain the trust of our partners and beneficiaries.
