Gem Hub Initiative seeks to address and meet the human capital development needs on the Continent of Africa and around the globe with focus on young people. Nigeria and most African countries occupy alarming positions in disease burden, poverty, unemployment, poor educational system and insecurity to mention a few.
According to the United Nations about 62 percent of the Nigerian population are below 25 years of age; if this pool is highly productive, development is inevitable. However, most youth are either unemployed, unemployable, or lack entrepreneurial skills. In order to save the future, GHI has seen the need for holistic approaches in solving the human development needs on the continent.
We seek to create platforms that equip, prepare and nurture young people to be healthy and productive. This will be done by addressing: the gaps in the education system; haphazard programming of young people’s health; issues relating to employment and entrepreneurship; and the decadence in moral values, leveraging powerfully on technology.
A world where young people are in a state of total wellbeing (body, soul and spirit), contributing effectively to the development of nations.
Implement strategic and innovative programs that promote the general wellbeing and productivity of young people through collaborations, policy advocacies and partnerships with young people themselves and relevant partners.
We do the deep work, we know humans are complex and so are their needs. We design and implement contextual programmes for a transformative experience with lasting impact.
