2018 IKALE OLUOMO AWARD / COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ROUNDTABLE DISCUSS CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
ABOUT IKALE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ROUNDTABLE AND AWARD NIGHT
No other time is the issue Community Development and youth Empowerment more apt than the present time where the youths are faced with many challenges. Youth accounted for about 75% population of any given society.
Unfortunately, not up to half of these youths are fully employed. The number keeps increasing annually, thus, bearing the brunt of unemployment which has been affecting Community development negatively. If urgent steps are not taken to tackle these challenges in an integrated and coherent manner, it would become a ticking time-bomb.
To empower thousands of unemployed young people and undergraduates across Ikale communities with the skills and the direction to create jobs for themselves and be self-reliant.To expose the youth to a wide range of information which will help to reposition them to take their rightful place in the comity of the nations? Such information will geared toward:Creating the awareness that the future belongs to them and that it must not be destroyed by them.
Sensitizing them to the fact that the future and its nature depend on the decisions and choices they make;
Creating a sense of history, especially of the noble and heroic contributions of the youth in the past to the Community development in comparison with the ignoble role of many youth today;
Enabling the youth to learn, using entrepreneurship case studies, about modern African trailblazers, their self empowerment and development strategies thereby giving the youth a set of inspiration role models to follow;
Sensitizing them to seek greater self-empowerment and creative educational opportunities as a means of redirecting their energy and ideas from anti-social activities to creative endeavours.
Empowerment is not about shifting responsibilities of other stakeholders, such as the local Council, State, unto young people’s shoulders. This is because the government has a primary responsibility to provide for the welfare of the people. Accordingly, government at different levels are expected to be delivering on their mandate of creating the enabling environment and opportunities that tare conducive for the aspirations of the people and Community development.
