Explain your project idea (2,000 characters)

Growing young minds from upper grades and lower grades in schools and university to understand the vocational studies on hand craft and artisan job for example carpentry, bead making and jewelry, hat making, hair styling will increase more productive youths and give rise to better understanding the need for more production outputs among our youths in Nigerian. We are faced with a lots of hand feeding young men and women and this is because the lack of jobs have retrogressed so badly and for this reason crime rates and more atrocities are committed by different groups of youths due to lack of employment. Why we continued training on the merchandise of re grooming youths with entrepreneurship and leadership training at every point when we train, building a balance at this point is for each youths to also learn a particular skills and approach to enable him/ her start up a business's. Presently with an online presence we have set up an online tutoring network , THE BUSINESS START( SME ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT) UP to reach and cover a wider range of youths hence who need help to build businesses from very small margin to a sustainable income.

Our successful beneficiaries are from age 12years - 16 years and 22 years - 35 years in different age range and build up during the training model and this chain process of training is for government schools in very poor regions in Nigeria were they suffer the need to thrive for survival in poor hardship of the economy , hence they are taught how to produce and sell at the best meaning full way by teaching them how to fish and earn a living rather than resulting to crime, hence this promotes peace.

How is your idea unique? (1,000 characters)

The need to have more leaders and entrepreneurs is laid with the fundamentals of proper training rather than the youths learning just baking , they are also best equipped and groomed with the first thought on how they can train others with what they have learned hence the chain - chain process is were we compare to living meaningful in existence to transfer knowledge, this makes it much beneficiaries hence we monitor our pool process of trainers and check regularly both offline and online. Similar models run this model, without sensitized the youths on the needs and importance on being trained before the model introduce , hence then loose the tendency's of the Strong embroidered action to sustainable growth and not partial .
