Mission Statement

Our mission is to advance the destiny of this great continent by raising a new crop of African youth leaders, who will work to develop indigenous and adaptable solutions to the grand challenges of the continent; through the promotion of innovations, digital education, entrepreneurship skill development and social inclusion.

Description

Bridgewaters Foundation for Youth Development is a non-governmental organization geared to stimulating the minds of African youths towards creating insightful yet indigenous solutions to the challenges Africa and the rest of the world face today. By promoting innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership development across the continent, we aim to serve as a hub for raising a new crop of leaders with fertile minds, intellectual depth, and strong work values.

Launched in Lagos, Nigeria in 2009 but in 2011, we mobilized to rural and semi-urban communities where we found more compelling needs.
Our goal is to equip not less than 1,000,000 African youths in digital, innovation, and entrepreneurship skills including AI, Robotics, programming, IoT, BlockChain etc. Through the Dignovate Africa project, we hope to help transform their skills into marketable businesses, capture their enthusiasm, and inspire innovations for rural development.

We are poised to raising a new crop of thinkers and young leaders who will work to create adaptable and indigenous solutions to address poverty and inequality.

WE OPERATE PRIMARILY OUTSIDE THE MEGA CITIES, attending to those in the majority yet often ignored.
