Dear Friends,

Just like you do every year; I also draw plans of certain goals that I wish to achieve in the incoming year. 

In 2021, my team and would like to facilitate registration of new voters and educate eligible voters across Nigeria starting with a pilot in Osun state. The crux of this project is the educate citizens on the importance of voting and participating in elections.

This project will be entirely managed by YNAG. a non-partisan, volunteer-driven leadership initiative.

About me

In 2012, when I was sponsored to an international conference by a major airline company in Nigeria, I came back and decided that I needed to help as many other young people access such opportunities. This birthed Hopefield Network as a social enterprise to create platforms for young people (17-30 years) to access opportunities and succeed at them. A big thank you to members and volunteers of the Network who have made it a global platform as it is today.

In 2016, the plan was to commit resources to expand the scope of Hopefield Network and get more young people like myself to have a deeper understanding of our governance and democratic process through an action-based civic education program. This led to the creation of YNAG as it is known today.

In 2018, the plan was to deepen our scope through collaborations and partnership with organizations in developed countries. We partnered with Generation Citizen, America’s foremost civics education organization, to lead Global Network for Youth Action. This opportunity gave us access to resources to learn more about governance and civic leadership for Africa and other developing countries.

To this end, I am seeking your support and encouragement to get this project actualized within the time-frame.

The details of the plan can be viewed here.

We will count on your advice, encouragement and guidance.
