Like every fresh graduate, after completing his National Youth Service, Shola was filled with hope and ambition of finding employment and beginning the next chapter of his life as a productive member of society and taking care of himself and his parents.​

2-years passed and nothing.

All dreams abandon. All hope faded.
Another unemployed youth added to the statistics.

Shola was at the point where he was prepared to do anything to ease the burden of poverty on himself and parents.
He heard about the Change Nigeria Project from a friend and submitted his CV and applied for 12-months fully-funded Agricultural Economist Apprenticeship placement; due to start in December 2016.
After meeting all the requirements, Shola was invited for an interview with the employer; things seemed to be looking up. Shola then shone in his interview and received the good news of being award the placement the following day.
