We had a quick chat with one of our Growth Partners, people looking to learn from our model and implement it in the context that fits any work they do.

The conversation is insightful and you would definitely learn a thing or two;


Q: What is your name, organisation and the industry?

A: My name is Aghogho Akporido, I am the Executive Secretary at Knowledge Exchange Centre (KEC) which a Non-profit organization



Q: What is your organisation about and what does it aim to solve?

A: The Centre for Entrepreneurship Knowledge Exchange, also known as Knowledge Exchange

Centre (KEC) is a non–profit organisation established in 2014 to tackle employability issues

among unemployed/job-seeking graduates in Nigeria.

Through our various training programmes on Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Employability

skills acquisition, we have been able to help unemployed graduate develop employability skills,

secure meaningful jobs and start successful businesses.

KEC is a Corporate Social Responsibility arm of XL Africa Group Limited.



Q: How has collaborating with us helped your organisation achieve your business

goals?

A: WAVE has helped KEC in redesigning its curriculum which has improved the

employability skills of our participants. Most of these participants have demonstrated these skills

in their current workplace.

WAVE has also helped us to facilitate some training sessions and also mentor some of our

participants. Some of these participants are now gainfully employed.

I really love the transformation that Wave is causing in the lives of the young people. Mary's experience just stands out. She is more equipped to live. This and more is what young girls especially need to compete favorably in Nigeria. Apart from the people that are in Lagos state, how can youths from other states participate in this training? How much does the training cost? Before I go, I really appreciate the leadership of West African Vocational Education. God richly bless you. Thank.
