About Us

The Foundation for Youth Development (FYD) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) chaired and founded in 2003 by the former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Nigerian National Assembly, Hon. Prince Chibudom Nwuche. The Foundation's main objective is to promote youth empowerment, enlightenment, education and motivation toward becoming national leaders imbued with the qualities of hard work, honesty, integrity, respect for the rule of law, fear of God, and nationalism. FYD strives to raise a generation of youth that will build the new Nigeria of our dreams anchored on rapid socio-economic development. Since its establishment in 2003, the Foundation for Youth Development (FYD) has conducted several enlightenment programs for youths on moral awareness and the cultivation of the right attitude towards becoming productive members of society.

We have also established community outreach programmes for widows and assisted in giving them grants to start small scale businesses. We have carried out HIV/AIDS enlightenment in rural areas in acknowledgement of the fact that without health it is impossible to have productive youth.

To see a new brand of Nigerian youth become better and productive citizens of this great nation and in turn make positive contributions to their communities and their country at large.

To empower youth with life and economically sustainable skills, building better lives for a sustainable future bearing in mind that the only way to save our nation is to save our next generation.

FYD believes that an integrated approach to development is the appropriate strategy to address current needs of young people in our society

FYD believes in the interventions that will engage with the full realities facing youth and their communities in order to enable them to be self-reliant, by creating an enabling environment for them through facilitating a sustainable process of Research, Counselling, Training and Development

FYD believes in documenting its functions and activities for the purpose of record keeping, transparency and accountability

FYD also believes in sharing experiences and activities of the organisation through exchange programmes and networking with identified strategic partners.
