Rationale Behind the Formation of TEN

The Organization Of Nationwide Empowerment Programs By The Government, Private Organizations Or Individuals With The Purpose Of Providing Economic Empowerment And Training For Unemployed Nigerians, Would Be A Priceless Strategy In The Alleviation Of Poverty In Nigeria.


The Strategy And Goals Of The Empowerment Network (TEN) Make It Different From Majority Of Other Existing Interventions Which Have Been Structured To Cater For Either A Specific Gender Or Type Of Entrepreneurs, So, They Clearly Do Not Try To Solve The Same Problem As TEN.


Provide long-lasting Access, support, and Connection To Growth Opportunities For Disadvantaged men and women who are majorly breadwinners Through Networks Of Partners, Sponsors And Volunteers.

Nigeria Ranks 6th in Most Miserable Economies in 2019.

The misery index is an economic indicator calculated by simply adding the unemployment rate to the inflation rate.

Despite its rather simple calculation, it is useful in determining how the average citizen in a given country is doing, as higher rates of unemployment and inflation are associated with increased socioeconomic issues for a country


World Economic Forum Report

…But No Matter What The Arguments Might Be, At The Root of Poverty Lies The Deprivation Of People’s Access To Basic Necessities Such As Food, Healthcare And Sanitation, Education And Assets. And The Evidence – Including From India – Shows That Solving These Issues Generally Lifts Populations Out Of Extreme Poverty.

  • Invest in girls’ education
  • Invest in health and wellbeing
  • Expand economic opportunities and embrace technology

Project Description

Step 1

Reach into impoverished areas, select breadwinners of families who have up to five (5) dependents, train them in line with various small scale businesses and provide funding to commence the businesses, up to the tune of ten thousand Naira (N10,000 for each breadwinner).

Stage 2

empower a minimum of eight million (8m) beneficiaries, who are breadwinners with up to five (5) dependents, over a ten (10) year period

Stage 3

Execute its outreach plans and training through volunteers, who enjoy annual benefits and who get awarded for major milestones they achieve on TEN’s scale of impact.

Stage 4

Eventually establish a minimum of two (2) local Empowerment Centers in all seven hundred and seventy- four (774) local governments in Nigeria, ownership, and management of which will be entrusted in volunteers who have achieved an outstanding milestone.

Stage 5

Establish perpetual Empowerment Centers across the nation, which will be operated by the volunteers, independently of TEN after their establishment. Hence, although TEN is structured to function over a ten (10) year period, its vision remains open-ended.
