Organisation advocates capacity building for development

Nokai Origin, Abuja

A non-governmental organisation, Deaninitiative, says the ability of a nation to harness its human resources with focus on capacity building is one of the fundamental areas in development.

The Founder, Michael Semiye, disclosed this to newsmen in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Mr Semiye added that “a nation that has the desire to keep growing must be committed in its effort to reach out to even the most remotest communities within its borders”.

In a bit to corroborate the efforts of the government in bringing about the much needed development, Mr Semiye said the DeanInitiative “focuses mainly on reaching out to the remotest parts of the federal Capital territory to meet the peculiar needs of each community”.

“We travel the distance that bigger NGO’S do not cover, and places where even motto cycle cannot enter. We use what we do in ft as a prototype to train other young people across the country and across Africa. We have been able to extend our platform through online advocacy to activities to allow young people across Africa learn from what we are doing without necessary creating burdens upon themselves.” said Michael.

He noted that “through the voluntary efforts of collective young people and support from some international organizations, we have been able to impact the lives of rural dwellers by educating them, providing water supply and other material needs as are peculiar to each community”.

Micheal also called for the involvement of young Nigerians who are passionate about rendering services to the nation to achieve desired development.

Deaninitiative, is a non-governmental organisation that strives to effect positive change in the rural communities around Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
