Uplift Nigeria has been adding to a lot of youths in the state, and I firmly believe the government of Bauchi state does not know anything about this non-profit organisation (Uplift Nigeria) or the Hub.
They spend time in organising training, seminars and events for tech inclined minds and supporting entrepreneurs through their two entities; Uplift Hub and Uplift Community. The Hub which is inside Federal Polytechnic Bauchi. Uplift Hub is looking forward to having another Hub in ATBU (Gubi Campus) to be able to reach out to more people, solve workspace problems and provide learning community facilities to those that are willing to learn.
KEY OBJECTIVE OF UPLIFT HUB:
Is to provide an affordable, conducive and available access to knowledge, mentorship, resources and access. Our main deliverable is to create founders who will create the startups, that will in turn to create jobs.
SUCCESSES OF THE HUB:
- Students, Interns & NYSC Corps Members are now seeing the hub as a place of interest and a destination to acquire skills. We are welcoming them with open arms.
- Other organizations within the community/state are starting to recognize the impact the hub is making and its potentials. We are now getting request for partnerships and collaborations on trainings and events.
- Sponsorship of events by Google, Digital Ocean and other meetups provide some support.
Also, they have community advocates in different institutions, and looking forward to having more to be able to distribute and empower them with resources for learning in their institutions, and that will solve problems of downloading materials for development since we all have unreliable access to internet or expensive internet access in the country.
