National School Entrepreneurship Programme (N-SEP)

(N-SEP) is an initiative of SMEDAN and SAGE Nigeria conceptualized to deliver hands-on Entrepreneurship and Community Service learning in Primary and Secondary schools across Nigeria. National School Entrepreneurship Programme (N-SEP) is set to provide access to functional and hands-on entrepreneurship and community service education to every primary and secondary school student in Nigeria so as to eliminate poverty, conflicts and massive youth unemployment. 370,000 pupils will be directly impacted in the first year as they create over 3,700 micro businesses and community service projects. Over 5,000 teachers will be trained on how to deliver hands-on entrepreneurship and community service education to students in primary and secondary schools. 18,500 business and civic leaders will be recruited as Business Advisory Board Members thereby enhancing community participation.
