Nigeria Youth Futures Fund Launch
Join us for an online panel discussion to officially kick off the new Nigeria Youth Futures Fund, created in partnership with LEAP Africa.
About this event:
The $5 million fund, seeded by the MacArthur Foundation and Ford Foundation, will build on momentum in the region from the youth-led #ENDSARS movement. It will inspire, empower, and equip a new cadre of leaders with skills for personal, organizational, and community transformation. The discussion will center around the new Fund and what’s next for the emerging group of youth leaders in Nigeria.
