Our Journey so far

Empowered African Youths Foundation

We’re On A Mission To Solve The Problems

What drives us?

Empowered African Youths Foundation is a non-profit organization registered in 2016 to empower African youths and promote entrepreneurship among young Africans. Our long-term vision is to build the largest network for African youths and young entrepreneurs for socioeconomic development. The problem identified when we started the foundation was the lack of self-awareness & confidence in young people to start a business and sustain it. There are over 225 million youths in Africa, many of whom are unemployed, and those who are employed do not get paid enough to provide for their basic needs or enable them to save.
