The Lagos Island Connect is a network of NGOs, comprising civil society organisations within the Lagos Island and its environs. Namely Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO), New Nigeria Foundation (NNF) Women’s Consortium of Nigeria (WOCON), Lagos State Youth Ambassadors, AIESEC, Freedom Park, CSR-in-Action, Vibrant Girls Development Initiative, Qamarh Foundation, Onikan Youth Association, Lagos Gist etc.
The LIC has a first-hand experience of the ordeals facing the youths in Lagos Island based on their work over the past years. This situation became worrisome and the need for intervention obvious. This need, therefore, brought together the above civil society organisations for a dialogue on a possible intervention. After much deliberations, the network saw an opportunity to impact on the youths by leveraging on the existing Onikan Youth Centre.
Lagos Island Connect envisions a Lagos Island where every youth has the opportunity to grow, develop necessary capacities and prosper.
To provide information, insight and opportunities so young people in Lagos Island can better define their future, aspire and improve their chances of becoming successful & make impact in return.
