ABOUT ONELIFE INITIATIVE
Our mission is to empower young people with the right skills using participatory tools whilst giving them access to appropriate information needed to activate sustainable change in society.
Often called Onelife Initiative, we are based in Ibadan, Nigeria and our key target populations are young people of both sexes, and of diverse economic, educational and social background. We believe in the long – term effect that results obtained from engaging young people can generate. We are adept at using participatory learning and action tools, PLA, media tools to trigger development in areas of governance and policies, sexual and reproductive health issues and enterprise.
We believe that the amalgamation of these thematic areas targeted chiefly at young people helps increase the worth of life of Nigerian youths given the overlap of these thematic areas.
Our mission is to empower young people with the right skills using participatory tools whilst giving them access to appropriate information needed to activate sustainable change in society. With this, we envision a generation of young people enjoying improved socio-economic life through innovative and consistent engagement with Nigeria’s public space. Thus far, we have reached over 16 million Nigerians through trainings, media engagement and other strategies at ensuring young people are empowered to pull themselves up by the bootstrap.
