About Us

Save the future; save our world!

Our Background

The most valuable assets of a nation are the youth, the leaders of tomorrow, and the prospects of any nation rest on their broad shoulders. The manpower contribution of youth to a nation lends credence to this fact.

Young people of the age bracket 10-35 years constitute 60% of Nigerian’s population of about 150 million, but to a nation whose teeming youths are plagued with motley forms of vices and anti-social acts, such as; corruption, peer influence, juvenile delinquency, cultism, drug abuse and addiction, hooliganism, teenage pregnancy, unsafe abortion, STI & HIV/AIDS etc. Youths are not left out of the current problems rocking the nation in the areas of basic health needs of the young people, food insecurity and the depleting environmental condition.

Much to this chagrin the unfavorable economic condition has led to low quality of education, vast unemployment rate, poverty, low participation and involvement of young people in decision making and all its ramifications. As a result of scrambling for a living, many young people have turned to be prostitutes, armed robbers, hoodlums, miscreants, and instruments of violence. They have become government liabilities than assets.

This high level of moral decadence, unemployment, hunger and corruption has gained prevalence in young people reaching an exponential phase with shocking catastrophic stages and its multiplier effects suffice to say, the stupefying trends of problems confronting young people necessitate actions to save the future from ruin. It is against this background that the organization The Youth’s Future Savers Initiative (a.k.a. Save the Future) was formed.
