People Concern International
is to encourage philanthropists, donors and funding organizations to support economic projects initiated by youths to engage in wealth creation. Our greatest joy is to leave a legacy in the lives of people, knowing one’s fulfillments only comes, as you contribute to the wellbeing of your fellow human beings.
We all know, youths are the engine for development in these countries, but the lack of the basic tools to create
employment opportunities, most young people have engaged in activities that are not productive; some are caught in criminal activities and many are risking their lives, traveling overseas for greener pastures using unlawful means.
The good news is, a larger number of these youths are ready to take advantage of available opportunities in agriculture, food processing, technology and entrepreneurship. It is worthy of note, that communal living is a way of life for most Africans, and many parents without any government assistance, send their children to school with the hope that, they would be the ones to take care of them in their old ages. The story becomes different, when help is not forth coming from these young people, because of lack of creative mindset, and with no income, the living conditions of the elderly parents and their communities, keeps experiencing extreme poverty.
