Project ESME is a public-private initiative in Enugu to facilitate the investment climate in Nigeria and create jobs and training opportunities for youth.
This first of its kind initiative includes the European Business Park - to provide security and quality infrastructure to European and Nigerian companies, the Centre for Practical Skills - to upscale and certify Nigerian workers based on European standards, and the Start-Up Centre – to support local entrepreneurship.
All three will be located on the second campus of Godfrey Okoye University in Enugu, one of our main partners.
Providing sustainable livelihoods for the Nigerian youth through education and employment opportunities, while keeping the value added in the country and hence preventing irregular migration.
Creating an eco-friendly self-sustaining park with access to water, electricity and sanitation for companies, students and residents to support economic and social development.
University & Practical Skills Centre
Training the youth in market-oriented skills together with the local university and European SMEs to meet the needs of the market for a skilled and certified labour force.
