Nigeria, one of the youngest and fastest growing countries in the world, is facing an urgent crisis. Half of its population is under the age of 19, with little to no employment opportunities available. A staggering two-thirds of young Nigerians are either unemployed or underemployed, leaving many families trapped in a cycle of poverty.
But hope is not lost. A group of tenacious entrepreneurs and startups have taken on the challenge of unlocking Nigeria’s huge potential. In a new documentary film by Thomas Lemmer and Flourish Chuckwurah, witness the incredible stories of those who refuse to let the status quo stand. Through education, targeted investment and cooperation with local communities, they aspire to ignite the potential of young Nigerians who want to work and thrive. Will their efforts bear fruit, and pave the way for a brighter future for Nigeria’s youth?
