She described Connak Foundation as a private non-profit organization established in 2012 with a vision to tackle youth unemployment, which has resulted in social malice and redundancy, by creating opportunities for economic empowerment and growth in Nigeria, adding that the foundation is poised to strengthen the economic capacities of youths and women to become agents of change in their communities

She expressed gratitude that the foundation has succeeded in sensitizing the youth to look away from white-collar jobs and develop themselves to contribute to the economic development of Nigeria and the world at large

On this part, the lead facilitator for Connak Foundation Entrepreneurship Initiative (COFEI), Dr. Emeka Unachukwu added that the Initiative is the second biggest Entrepreneurship Initiative in Nigeria, pointing out that the whole process is not an Abia State Initiative but a National initiative targeted on empowering young minds across Nigeria.

According to Dr. Unachukwu, the Initiative recruited eight thousand people with eleven weeks of online training in which an assessment was done and four hundred and fifty participants were selected, which represents the Eastern Northern, and Southern parts of Nigeria.

He noted that Abia State Bootcamp is the center that accommodates Eastern Nigeria, to further deepen the knowledge of the participants on becoming an entrepreneur, adding that the participants will be allowed to present their business plans, where the successful ones will be empowered with a five thousand dollars grant to start up their Businesses.
