Creating Jobs

We focus on investing in businesses that increase the profitability of the agricultural sector. This enables us to be a significant contributor to the reduction of Nigeria’s spiraling youth unemployment rate and associated social unrest, by providing a significant number of semi-skilled to lower-skilled job opportunities.

The continent faces several urgent challenges, that with appropriate guidance, can transition from challenges to key drivers of economic growth. These critical challenges include an exceptionally young and growing population and spiraling youth unemployment. Nigeria is a prime example of a country with the potential to transition challenges to economic growth. In Nigeria half the population, 75 million people, are under the age of 18 years old, with a current youth unemployment rate over 50%.

In the next 10 years, we can expect 40 million new youths to enter an already oversaturated workforce. In partnership with organizations who share our vision, we can leverage a sustainable private sector led approach to generate jobs for a significant portion of these youths, developing a workforce with fewer dependents and increased disposable income, translating into significant economic growth.
