The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited foundation has partnered with the National Youth Service Corps and Kudimata, an educational financial community, to equip corps members with basic financial skills.

In a recent statement noted that 60,000 youth corps members currently in NYSC Orientation Camps across the country would receive basic financial training courtesy of the NNPC foundation.

“The programme is aimed at equipping Nigerian youths with requisite financial skills for success in life, either as entrepreneurs or employees,” it said.

The Chief Executive Officer at Kudimata, Kathleen Erhimu, said that the firm had provided over 20,000 Nigerian graduates with basic financial education and entrepreneurial skills over the last few months.

“We have identified the urgent need to form value-adding alliances to support the National Youth Service Corps SAED programme (Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurial Development) through financial education, business advisory, and empowerment initiatives,” she added.

According to the Managing Director of NNPC Foundation, Emmanuella Arukwe, once corps members are equipped with the knowledge and skills to make informed financial decisions, they are better positioned to start the next stage of their life journey.

She said NNPC was delighted to provide access to start-up resources and opportunities to ensure that our teeming youths achieve their dreams of self-actualisation.
