OUR ACHIEVEMENTS & PROJECTS
ICE Hub has been empowering youths and women, individuals and businesses with the relevant skills to gain access to their desired job markets and connect them with employers; bridging the digital skill gap and building the digital capacity to boost employability and job improvement.
- The project empowered thousands of youths in the areas of ICT, Entrepreneurship Development, Skill Acquisition and Advocacy.
- The project trained facilitators to train and mentor young people (men and women) and other key stakeholders, co-create knowledge material and discourage crime and unethical behaviour and equip them to be self-sufficient, productive and useful to nation building.
- The project also collaborated with other agencies and dvelopment organisations to help minimise youth unrest via the various human capital development and youth empowerment programs.
Supported by funding from the Nigerian Government and the UK Department for International Development (DFID), we facilitated the development of over 50,000 unemployed graduates in the 36 states of the Federation and FCT through internship programmes. Arising from this; 10,219 graduates were selected and deployed. There were 8,499 intern and 858 firm participants.
This programme was targeted at strengthening young girls and women empowerment and inclusion in Nigeria’s socio-economic and democratic processes through the coordinated three-folds of entrepreneurship, advocacy and technology for an enriched and inclusive empowerment of women in communities in Nigeria.
Entrepreneurship elements avail the women to attain self sufficiency through business skills acquisition and implementation; advocacy elements equip the women with resources to demand and obtain, through sustained dialogue and civil activities, their rights and all that pertains to their wellbeing.
The technology elements are tools, and enablers, that will expand and enhance the capacity of the women to leverage technology advancement to creatively engage their environment for self-substance and empowerment of other women in a sustainable manner. The unique selling point in the HEAT programme is the harmonization and coordination of the three aspects of the programme to maximize the outcome and impact.
Supported by funding from the European Social Fund (ESF) In 2015 we ran a number of programmes aimed at people who have lost their jobs and are trying to return to employment. Initially with a success rate of 40%, we now have more than 70% of the over 200 people engaged in the programme who are back in employment.
We work with a range of private and public sector organisations, including the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), the Institute of Directors (IOD), the Ideas Bank, and a number of Technology Innovations partners, to nurture ideas, foster innovations and inspire creative thinking in social and economic entrepreneurship.
