HACEY organizes capacity building for youths in Nigeria that teaches life building skills and empower young people to further develop themselves to become socially responsible individuals. To give them better understanding of leadership, learning by action model and interactive activities are employed that teach the principles of teamwork and success. In schools, young people are also imparted with knowledge on how they can better cope with school work and making the right career choices. To help us achieve this, the book ‘SMARTNESS’, published by HACEY in 2010 was used to engage and educate the students. Using the acronym ‘SMARTNESS’, HACEY also empowers in-school and out-of-school youths in Nigeria to be social change agents and leaders in their communities. Till date, over 500 youths have been empowered across Nigeria
In 2010, ‘Project Elevate’ was developed to empower women in northern Nigeria. The aim of the project was to empower women to become entrepreneurs, thus providing for themselves and their households. Over 500 women in northern part of Nigeria benefited from this project.
In 2012, HACEY, in partnership with a faith based organization organized a leadership and entrepreneurship training program for 50 young people in Lagos state, Nigeria. The training program developed the leadership capabilities of young people who participated in the program and empowered them with adequate knowledge to prepare and develop their business ideas. The program followed up with the participants initiating social projects in their communities.
