Yes I Believe Academy (YIBA) is a Social Enterprise focused on connecting adolescents and youths; giving them the required knowledge and skill to be relevant in their world. Their goal is to engage individuals within the ages of 15 – 40, empower them with relevant knowledge, skill and self awareness to navigate the current realities of our time.
YIBA is pleased to invite you to attend their Love at Christmas party to “Put a Smile On” a Child in Makoko, a waterfront slum settlement in the heart of Lagos mainland.
Makoko, is a small settlement with more than 28,000 of its 85,000 population living on makeshift houses built on silt on top of water. This living condition deprives the children in this community of basic needs, decent living and access to education and infrastructures that improve the human condition. They attend classes in shanties often flooded and leaving them prone to communicable diseases.
The Put A Smile On campaign is a call to elevate the human condition of underprivileged children in Africa. Yes I Believe Academy (YIBA) is a strategic partner of the United Nations Nigeria.
