Junior Achievement Publishes 2021 Impact Report

Lagos, Nigeria, February 2022 – As part of its culture of promoting accountability and transparency, Junior Achievement Nigeria has published its 2021 Impact report, highlighting the past year’s achievements and giving a glimpse into the difference the organization has made in the lives of its beneficiaries.

The report showcases JAN’s impact over the years with particular emphasis on its impact, reach, testimonials from beneficiaries and highlighting donors that contributed generously to enhance its FY2021. While JAN has reached over 1 million (1,119,622) beneficiaries since its inception, a total number of 169, 241 learning experiences were recorded in 2021 with the support of 261 volunteers implementing 23 programs in 280 schools across the country.

By focusing on its vision of raising conscientious business leaders leading a vibrant economy, the impact report gives a breakdown of how JAN has empowered and helped young people to own their economic future by teaching critical skills in entrepreneurship, work readiness, financial and digital literacy while emphasizing its strategic roles as a thought leader in addressing SDG 1(No poverty), 4(Quality education), 5(Gender equality), 8(Decent work and economic growth) and 11(Partnerships for the goals).

Commenting on this development, the Executive Director, Junior Achievement Nigeria, Foluso Gbadamosi, stated “The impact report clearly illustrates how JA Nigeria has performed in the last five years, particularly in 2021 where we recorded major milestones in program delivery. We leveraged digital technology to scale our impact through deploying digital tools in the implementation of some of our programs and embracing the hybrid model in program execution. This was evident in the implementation of two of our major programs – ViMP (Venture in Management Program) and LEAD Camp for girls as both programs reached more beneficiaries thanks to digital technology”.

“I use this opportunity to thank our board members, funders and partners who have generously supported our activities over the years. We are better positioned to achieve our strategic goal of reaching the next one million learning experiences by 2025”.
