ABOUT US

The Foundation for Youth Development (FYD) was founded in the year 2003 to address the issues of youth empowerment including education, health,skills acquisition etc. It was also formed to address poverty, inequality and wants among the rural populace.

Considering the need to bridge the yawning gap that existed between city dwellers and those in the rural areas, the Foundation started as an empowerment scheme through the giving of grants to market women, bursary schemes to students, health interventions for the indigent and the aged etc. This scheme later metamorphosed into a Foundation that addresses youth education, skills acquisition, empowerments, amongst others.
