Education is useless unless it is useful to a third party! Welcome to our page. We are a group of young people, and by young, it means all of us are below 35. In fact, the youngest member of this organization is 29. After graduation, we suddenly discovered that we could do so many things with out pens…apart from transforming those things into feasible developmental projects. As such, we took upon ourselves to #Unleash our potentials, which we strongly believe are inherent in everyone of us, then we #Empower ourselves and our Communities.


We organise capacity building workshops, support initiatives engineered by youth, cultural caravans like music talents, theatre for development, rehabilitation projects for girls who have dropped from school and are in dire need of a second chance in life, advocate for the respect of human rights, and community mobilization.

We welcome your moral, material or financial support to the works that we are doing on the ground. a penny spared is a talent rescued, and a step into the advancement of a community project for the needy.
