A family Life forum with deep Godly family values, Familylifers has today launched an online platform that is built to address structural and practical challenges faced by Nigerian family, especially the youth.
Unveiling the platforma t a press conference in Ikeja, one of the Co-convener of the website, Pastor (Mrs) Yomi Adewale said the initiative is a laudable idea that will collaborate and support the efforts of the government to curb the rate of unemployment among the youths in Nigeria.
According to him, the online forum (www.familylifers.com) provides an opportunity for empowerment, employment, acquisition of skills, advertisement of businesses for SMEs/entrepreneurs for our youth to engage in meaningful ventures that will help to shun activities that could bring a setback to Nigeria and cause havoc on her citizens.
“Since the problems of our nation are multi-facet. The solutions to the present state of our nation must also be multidimensional. Thus, we discovered that one of the best ways to solve the problem of our nation is using the power of science and technology. That is why we are here today to see the birth of a platform that will bring a solution to many of our nation’s problems,” he added.
Also speaking on why the Family Lifers is being launched, another Co-convener, Pastor Bisi Adewale said Nigeria battles so many things at the same time from high crime rate to poverty, unemployment, divorce, wife battering, abandonment, violence in marriage, depression, kidnapping, banditry, child sexual abuse, suicides, violence against women and others.
Hence, the launch of the Family Lifers, which will help young people in the country grow to full potential and responsible adults is coming at the right time.
He explained that the thoughts of helping solve many of Nigeria’s problems were the propelling force behind creating the website and its applications. The platform, according to him will help in wealth creation and eliminate unemployment as the platform will provide employment opportunities. The platform will also empower young people and families. It will keep the youth busy and reduce crime rates. It will help parents in raising better children for society.
“The new platform will also give room for young Nigerians to interact and showcase their skills, products and services FREE OF CHARGE. It will also be an avenue for unemployed graduates to be linked with employers of labour as they upload their CVs on the platform,” he emphasized.
Nigeria has one of the largest numbers of young people in the world. In their annual report, the World Bank tracks the percentage of each country’s population within 0 – 14 years of age. Among the countries with a high population of children are Nigeria, Afghanistan, and Uganda.
About violence against women, a new report from the World Health Organization (WHO) revealed that, a third of all women experience physical or sexual violence at some point in their lives.
The report is the largest ever study of violence against women, and it includes data from the years 2000-2018.
