This project is aimed at reducing the unemployed youths by engaging them in activities like Fish Farming, Poultry and also providing constant power supply for people within a community by putting up solar panels.
Explain your project idea (2,000 characters)
First of all, the rate of increasing unemployment in Nigeria is unbelievable. We have graduates with First class degrees sitting at home for years with no jobs. We can make a change by engaging these youths in activities that would assist them with basic necessities. Fish Farming and poultry are very lucrative businesses that can be used to engage youths. The proceeds from the farming can be sold to Market women and companies who are interested in purchasing. Setting up a standard fish farm and poultry will assist to make youths have something to do and will keep them out of depression/discouragement. Also, the country Nigeria is suffering from inadequate electricity supply, some areas do not have electricity for weeks and when they do have its only for some time. Solar panels are very useful in these kind places. At least there would be power supply to power light bulbs, charge devices like telephones and laptops and in some cases depending on the power of the Solar system, some can be used to power up fridges and other house hold appliances.
