Youth Empowerment for Orphans and the Needy

Executive Summary

The Comforters Christian Home is established to provide Hope for the needy and CARE for the orphans in Nigeria and beyond.

Apart from the timid unemployed graduates in Nigeria, there is also in the street orphans/less privilege who cannot afford the formal education or take a vocation training that would make them self-employed and be financially independent.

These has led to high insecurity of lives and properties; poverty; human trafficking and economic imbalance in our society.

As against this backdrop, the Comforters Christian Home for Orphans and Needy is therefore passionately seeking for grants from prospective collaborators and sponsors to assist our great country in ameliorating the poverty level and the sufferings of the people especially the Orphans and other less privileges in our society.

The area of focus for the purpose of the grant is on Primary School Education for the Orphans and vocational trainings in tailoring in hair dressing/barbing; fish farming; poultry; automobile etc.

Upon feasibility study and market survey, a total budget of ₦11,621,500.00 (Eleven Million, six hundred and twenty-one thousand, five hundred naira only) was put together to sponsor the in the above listed areas respectively. See breakdown in the proposed budget below.

The Comforters Christian Home is therefore by this assertion soliciting for the sum of ₦11,621,500.00 from Passionate donor to collaborate and support this cause in ameliorating the sufferings of our young Nigerians

For a couple of years back, the Nigeria Universities and other tertiary institutions produces an average of 500,000 graduates annually of which about 60% wanders in search of white collar jobs that are not available this day.

Apart from the unemployed graduates, there is also in the street orphans/less privilege who cannot afford the formal education.

Pertinent in Edo State are also the issues of human trafficking; street hawking and trading by teenagers; lots of abandon children who has now be taken over by orphanage homes and other vibrant youths who are supposed to be in school or engaged in craftsmanship trainings that will make them self-employed, but yet justify idle to perpetuate all sort of criminal acts.

Consequent upon the above, there has been a persistence increase in Nigeria youth restiveness owing to the corresponding massive growth in the population of our country and the limited resources available. Crime rate has been on the increase; especially in the North East and South-South of the Country where you have the BOKO-HARAM and the Niger Delta Avengers respectively.

These has led to high insecurity of lives and properties; poverty; economic imbalance; etc.

The Nigeria government has made drastic efforts and policies to addressing these problems of unemployment and poverty in the home of the less privilege, but a lot still need to be done. Hence, the government needs other non-governmental organizations, voluntary bodies to earnestly support this course.

For this cause the Comforters Christian Home for Orphans and Needy is seeking for grants from prospective collaborators and sponsors to assist our great country in ameliorating the poverty level and the sufferings of the people especially the Orphans and other less privilege ones.

Embarking on this laudable projects will without doubt reduce insecurity in our society and contribute to the economic growth of our nation.
