"When I was in Junior Secondary School 1 (JSS1), I used to perform woefully in my academic work. But since I joined Goal everything about me has changed including my academic performance. Goal training have made me realized the tips for achieving quality academic performance. While the benefits enlisted in the Goal life Skill manual motivated me more in doing well in my school work. Some of the things I did after my training was always being in class and paying attention when my teacher is teaching, doing my assignment and class work promptly, asking important and relevant questions etc. However, my academic performance has greatly improved and I have become one of the best students in my school. I have been chosen by the school authority to be representing the school in debate and quiz competitions as I have been also made the Junior Secondary School Christian leader, the Red Cross secretary, JET club president and secretary to the student representative council. Goal programme has really helped me in all areas of life because I can boldly face the crowd, talk to others politely and report any form of violence against me or among any of my peers . I also learned how to kick football, but more professionally on how to trap and make passes to my team mates on field while forming an alliance in solidarity to achieve our goal as a team."- Elizabeth
"I benefited from the SCB (School-Based) Goal project few years ago. Recently I was selected for Skills for Life project (S4L) project. I learned Make-Up and Gele at Rullion capacity Builders in Surulere, Lagos. It took me 3 months to complete my training. This opportunity has exposed me to lots of people who in turn have become my customers. I train interested apprentices on the vocation and have a fan base of over 100 on Facebook. Every week I make at least 10000 (ten thousand) Naira and render home service almost every weekend. I can now boast of a good amount of money in my savings account which I will be using to register my Jamb exams very soon. However, I am also making a frantic effort to register my business brand with CAC (Cooperate Affairs Commission) as soon as possible. I am so grateful to SCB and YEF for changing my life for best. Honestly, I can’t thank them enough!"- Emmanuel Chiamaka
"Well, before I was picked by the Youth Empowerment Foundation (YEF), I would say I have been in the dark, so naïve. But thanks to YEF and Standard Chartered Bank who sponsored me in computer training and other skills for life. I feel like I have just been born into the present world. So far, my experience with Youth Empowerment Foundation and Standard Chartered Bank has been great and sometimes I wish it would never end and for that I am grateful."- Miss. Ahuchaogu C.
