At GOYED, we run programs that facilitate our vision and mission statements. We focus on activities that can help young people unlock and achieve their vision and go on to impact their communities positively.
We are achieving our vision, mission, goals and objectives through the following programs:
1. The Youth Enlightenment and Development society (YEDS) Program
In line with its mission to facilitate youth and societal development, GOYED created the YEDS Program as a platform to engage students in national development processes (in school youths).
GOYED believes that for change and development and to be effective, both must reach the grassroots of the society. At GOYED, one of our societal theory postulates that “for any intellectually driven society, the functional grassroots are its students”. This theory is behind the creation of YEDS as a tool to effect positive change and development within the Nigerian student communities.
The YEDS has a club component and a project component. The YEDS club has been conditionally approved by the state Ministry of Education via the Post Primary Schools Service Commission (P.P.S.S.C), Awka for secondary schools in Anambra state.
2. The GOYED Youth Empowerment Scheme (GYES)
This is a program with the major goal of reducing youth unemployment and underemployment. It’s a combination of various training (entrepreneurship, leadership and skills acquisition) and financial programs.
3. The GOYED Financial Thrift (GFT) Microfinance Program
We run a financial program called the GOYED Financial Thrift, in which active small income earners, especially micro, small scaled business owners, women and youths can access a range of financial services including micro-savings, micro-loans, micro-insurance and other business development services which are tools for economic development.
Beneficiaries will learn how micro savings can turn to become a sea of funds that can enable them start up and grow their ideal businesses or companies. They will also learn how to access funds and indeed access funds to boost their business activities.
4. GOYED Community Development Conference
We organize the GOYED Community Development Conference which is an annual event, and a platform to create quality awareness about various community development stakeholders and their community development initiatives. It is also the aim of the conference to create a unique community development network where community development stakeholders can come together and integrate their community development initiatives to ensure a far wider impact in the society.
