Speaking about the initiative, Austin Imoru, Communication Director of SkillUp Naija, stated, “We believe that empowering young Nigerians with practical skills is crucial to unlocking their potential and fostering economic development. With the launch of ‘Skills to Wealth: The Complete Teens’ Entrepreneurship Guide,’ we are providing a roadmap for young people to become self-reliant and contribute meaningfully to society.”

Imoru further emphasized the importance of catching young Nigerians at an early age, stating, “By equipping teenagers with practical skills and entrepreneurial knowledge, we are not only empowering them to create sustainable livelihoods but also fostering a culture of innovation and creativity. This proactive approach is essential in addressing the challenges of youth unemployment and fostering economic growth in our communities.”

The distribution of the “Skills to Wealth” book to teens in Rivers, Edo, and Abia States is part of SkillUp Naija’s broader mission to empower young Nigerians across the country. The organization believes that investing in the skills development of youth is key to building a prosperous and sustainable future for Nigeria. By providing free access to this valuable resource, SkillUp Naija aims to level the playing field and ensure that every young person has the opportunity to succeed.

In addition to distributing the book, SkillUp Naija will also be organizing workshops and training sessions to complement the learning experience. These sessions will provide practical guidance and support to teenagers as they explore their entrepreneurial interests and turn their ideas into reality.

SkillUp Naija invites individuals, organizations, and government agencies to join hands in catching young Nigerians by empowering them with economically viable skills. Together, we can build a future where every young person has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.
