About Project A.C.E
Project A.C.E (Access, Community Development, Education) is an iterative 3-part project that aims to attain economic equality for disadvantaged Nigerian youths, and equip them to become social change agents.
Through primary research, our team has identified a lack of ambition and purpose among disadvantaged youths in Makoko, Lagos, thus making them more susceptible to crime and other endangering lifestyles, and victims of the poverty cycle.
To tackle this, our beneficiaries go through a series of intensive personalised programs that mentally reorient them, equip them with the education and career knowledge they need to thrive, and opportunities to lead transformation in their communities.
Phase 1: Re-orientation
Employs re-orientation mechanisms to enable the beneficiaries unlearn unproductive ways of thinking and learn and relearn productive ways of thinking to imbibe a growth mindset.
Phase 2: Career Development
Beneficiaries undergo upskilling programs and are connected with figures within the industries they aim to operate in to expose them to opportunities outside their community.
Phase 3: Community Development
The beneficiaries undergo seminars that equip them with Project Management and entrepreneurial skills to enable them to become active problem solvers in their community.
At Elevate, we are passionate, resilient and committed to building the Nigeria we want to see, starting from the grassroot.
Investing in people’s lives is our way of leaving our impact on the world.
