The DoTheDream Youth Development Initiative is a non-governmental organization that encourages young people to build their world through the investment of their personalities through both formal and informal channels in order to create opportunities for the achievement of sustainable development goals. The vision of helping youths find their voice and inspiring their voices to be heard for inclusiveness, innovations, and inventions creates a hunger in reaching more communities in order to see localized versions of the sustainable development goals.
DoTheDream’s events and projects, which include Leadership Seminar’, Annual’Leadership and Youth Development Summit’, Empowerment summit for higher institutions and NYSC camps, Leadership Library’, Maximum Impact, Entrepreneurship Scheme, and Home Farm, were born out of a strong desire to reach out to indigenous people, youths, communities, and organizations in order to encourage them to see their role in sustainable development as essential to the process of nation building.
Over the course of its existence, the organization has carried out a number of activities and projects with the primary goals of promoting girls’ education, education in general, entrepreneurial endeavours, a leadership library, advocacy, agricultural influence, information and communication technology, and helping teenagers, youths, communities, those who have retired or are planning to retire, and those who are approaching retirement age to take charge of their futures and add value to adults by advocating for them and helping them build their capacities in order to make the most of the opportunities available.
Over the course of the years, organizations have been at the forefront of youth development with partnership from the United Nations Information Centre, the Ministry of Education in Lagos state, the Federal Ministry of Education in Nigeria, the United Nations Office of Drug and Control, the Kingdom of the Netherlands embassy in Lagos, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Office of the Prime Minister in Finland, the Federal ministry of Youths, state ministries of Youths, etc., and have thus far given birth to a large number of leaders.
The team is made up of young people whose goal is to make a difference in the world around them. These individuals are aware of the potential for turning their current location and the resources they possess within themselves into the reality of their dreams. They have come to the conclusion that the best way to recreate their world is to look inward and mine the diamond that is deposited within themselves. Managing Directors (MDs), Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Veteran Sport Journalists, Musical Artistes, and Entertainment Icons are all examples of people who fit the profile of a true investor. These individuals are experts in their respective fields and hold high-ranking positions in their organizations.
More people have become entrepreneurs in a variety of fields as a result of an event called Do The Dream Entrepreneurial Scheme. These individuals were able to kickstart the entrepreneurial spirit that had been dormant in them by participating in the event, which was designed to foster an entrepreneurial spirit in everyone and particularly those who are approaching retirement.
