Ebullient Youth Development Initiative for Africa
...discovering a continent flying in valour
Know Who We Are

Message from the Founder

Ebullient Youth Development Initiative for Africa (EYuDI-Africa) came to be in the year 2009 following registration/Affiliation with networks of NGOs and subsequent incorporation with Corporate Affairs Commission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on 25th June 2012. We are affliated to NYNETHA and National Youth Council of Nigeria (N.Y.C.N). EYuDI-Africa emerged in my aspiration and conviction that we can build a home, nation, continent and world filled with peace and prosperity; as much as we effectively harness our God given resources – human and natural. My belief and conviction that we can build peace and prosperity is not something we acquire by just believing. It's a value to attain by holistically addressing the attitude of our contemporary, particularly the young people who are highly influenced by the societal values.

EYuDI-Africa has evolved out of the need and passion to inspire, coordinate and mobilize young people, who are patriotic, truthful, honest, hardworking and disciplined; who will vehemently strive to maintain Peace and Development, especially in African countries. These ebullient and irrepressible young people shall uphold civilized manners and democratic principles, resist malpractices or manipulation of a just system and struggle for moral, socio-cultural and economic regeneration of their contemporaries. It is also my belief that when these transformational ebullient young people drive the needed change process across the continent, it would be done with great creativity, innovation, zeal, and result.

EYuDI-Africa shall continuously ensure that on-going programs run to enhance: wealth creation, employment generation, and entrepreneurship development. EYuDI-Africa shall also serve as a role model to aspiring transformational ebullient youths across the continent, through our programs and sustainability strategies of effective youth development and empowerment. EYuDI-Africa shall not relent in providing leadership and training for African youths to imbibe and enforce the culture of self-reliance, professionalism, patriotism, democracy and good governance. I wish to commend the efforts of our committed Board of Trustee, Management Board, Country Management Teams, State Management Teams, Volunteers, Consultants, Affiliates, Partners and Donors in our collective believe that we can build a society where peace and prosperity has high rating. Victor P.O. Uchedienyi, ASM Executive Director
