Isn’t it about time you took control of your life and future?
“Overall, it seems that younger generations indeed face several systematic issues more than previous generations, but adequate individual, family and state support are still largely lacking. Hopefully the society and the government do not realize it when it is late that in order to maintain a well-functioning economy and society, younger generations need a firm footing in the job market and all other areas of the economy with ample stability” stated Mr. Oladamola
Mr. Soares Oladamola, affirmed the achievements of HCF, that the foundation has been able to award over 500 University Scholarships through the educational support program, over 600 mentees have gone through the HCF Mentorship Program, the foundation has also been able to organize several self-discovery seminars on the platform of the Self Discovery program and the foundation also organized several self-discovery seminars on the platform of the Self Discovery Program which has received lots commendations from the declared testimonies.
With the amazing things this organization is doing to increase the self-awareness and self-value of Nigerian youths who may have been displaced, impoverished and denied basic rights and comfortable living earlier on in their childhood, this would raise the hopes of those who believe in a truly autonomous African nation that is equipped with capable minds and innovative entrepreneurs who are impacting the economy and society in multiple ways.
