Famous, like many other young people in Nigeria’s most popular slum, was not sure of what tomorrow held for him. Now, he is a student at a university of his choice – following his employment at the Visa Section of the British High Commission in Abuja – thanks to his participation in the Ajegunle.org project. Funke, another project participant, grew her business of N2, 000 by over 2,000% after the training. The project is also helping to change the perception of the Ajegunle community, and other disadvantaged communities by demonstrating that we only need to open the door to see how fast even the disadvantaged youth will run. Having established the first Innovation Centre in Ajegunle, we are presently working towards the replication of the idea beyond Ajegunle, particularly in South East and North East Nigeria. The Ajegunle Innovation Centre serves as a knowledge hub where more youth from the community can be empowered for the world of work
