Ben Abah – Youth Empowerment

Date grant awarded: August 3, 2019

In Nigeria, the unemployment rate amongst youth is on the rise. To help curb this and engage young people, Eneojoh Benjamin Abah started the Youth Empowerment initiative where young individuals in the Dukpa and Abuja communities are trained on hair dressing, a tangible skill that translates into economic opportunity, and stability. Abah is inspired by seeing the youth actively engaged. With funds from The Pollination Project, he will be able to acquire the materials to facilitate hands on trainings – including hair dryers, dressing kits, and a place to deliver these workshops.
