NIGERIA'S PROMISE TO THE YOUTHS (A NATIONAL ALLIANCE) Nigeria's promise to the youths: A National Alliance, adapted [By permission from the general Collin Powell led America's Promise- the Alliance for youth, is an initiative of the Osigwe Anyiam-Osigwe Foundation, among others, that perhaps gives comprehensive and practical expression to Chief Emmanuel Onyechere Osigwe Anyiam Osigwe`s concept of A Holistic Approach To Human Existence And Development.
The program is designed towards empowering the youths economically; providing them with good moral and ethical orientation that ensures their responsible citizenship, and guiding them towards positive spiritual development. Towards the attainment of these objectives, we have identified eight areas of promise to the youths of our country.
- A healthy start and future [ Access to sustainable quality child care and health care delivery services]
- An on -going relationship with caring adults- parents, mentors, tutors or coaches, [providing the youth with positive role models and hands on guidance].
- Restoration of self-esteem deriving from a marketable skill, vocational training or apprenticeship that enhances their prospects of genuine economic empowerment.
- Safe places with structured activities during non- school hours/ Holidays [Civic Centers].
- Effective Education for all children and youths.
- Restoration of the character ethic.
- Opportunities to give back through community service
- A fulfilling life to the disabled child.
The handbook on " Nigeria promise to the youths: A national Alliance", contains the action plan for the realization of these promises. Essentially Nigeria's promise, will serve as a nation wide catalyst urging public, private and non- profit organizations to focus their combined talents and resources at improving the lives of our Nation's youths.
We intend to mobilize corporate bodies, non- profit organizations philanthropic foundations, aid agencies, service providers, communities, federal, state and local governments to join in a nation- wide alliance aimed at ensuring a future for our youths.
