Welcome to the Sozo Networks
Sozo Networks is a non-profit organization known for promoting the participation of young people in civic leadership and social entrepreneurship in Nigeria. Through unconventional education methods, we help young people develop competence for active community engagements and leadership. Our leadership development practice develops young leaders and strengthens youth-led initiatives by providing experiential training, volunteering opportunities, networks, hands-on experiences, and idea incubation programs. Our alumni network has evolved into a strong ecosystem of young social change leaders, collectively and individually providing solutions to some of Nigeria’s most critical problems through civic leadership and entrepreneurship.
We are harnessing youth power for social and economic development by empowering young people to become social entrepreneurs.
To create a sustainable world where peace and justice thrive, all individuals must acquire values, relevant skill-set, and heightened awareness (UNESCO 2014). Our theory of change is to harness youth power for socio-economic development by empowering them to make income and impact. We do this by educating to young leaders, empowering them to start and manage social enterprises and provide a network that continues to support their initiatives.
