Why should I donate to CSAAE?
In Nigeria, over 118 million people are under the age of 25. To put this number into perspective, consider this: If these young people formed a country, that country would be the 12th largest in the world; smaller than Japan, but larger than Mexico or the Philippines. As these young people come of age, how well they transition to adulthood and how well they integrate economically, politically and socially will influence whether Nigeria thrives or collapses from greed and factionalism. The future rests with them and in the face of their growing numbers, those who can help guide their efforts, have a responsibility to steer them.
The young people coming of age in Nigeria and Africa have the power to shape more positive futures for themselves and others. However, the continent’s long standing problems: a decline in oil prices, endemic corruption, and challenges common to many sub-Saharan African countries: inadequacies in public health systems and income inequalities, undercut the potential of Africa and its young people.
Programs like CSAAE invest in and support the potential of young people by providing mentors, career direction, and college scholarship support. If Africa cannot accommodate the needs and aspirations of its surging population of young people, they could generate waves of migration for decades out of frustration or simply a lack of opportunity.
CSAAE spends over 15 million naira ($45,000) annually to bring free ELP, CBEP and YEAP programs to our future leaders and workforce. With your contribution, we can reach more young people.
Many of these youths come from struggling homes. Rather than drop out of college and become terrorists or join other criminal gangs, we give them scholarship to complete college.
Over 32 community projects powered by CSAAE across Nigeria. Help solve some of our community problems by donating towards CSAAE $150,000 annual project fund.
Youth need modern learning tools to cope with the cutting edge training we give them at CSAAE. They need books, data, smartphones and tablets to participate in our weekly webinars.
Our trainings are free and over 2000 youths attend each of them. You can sponsor any of our events for youths in your Church, town, school, community, place of work, etc.
Give a gift of our life changing career path books in young people in your Church, villages, schools and organizations. Nothing empowers more than knowledge especially knowledge that works.
Thank you for supporting us. Together we can make Africa a better place where all can find support and encouragement to work hard, live in dignity and feel proud to belong.
