BACKGROUND

Toplead Development Initiative (TDI) was created to fill the gaps that have made living a meaningful life a dream.

We have observed with dismay that a society that neglects her youths and fails to invest in their education, especially the less privileged, would have to deal with the consequences of ignorance.

Today, it has become a norm to the society to have young people grow up without the basic knowledge of the working world. The result is devastating.  With ignorance as their bliss and first language, they become the unsolicited class of society, without wisdom and understanding, tyranny becomes the order and those underutilized minds resort to vices, violence and oppression of society.

The development of leadership contributes greatly to the positive development of young people and their communities.

Helping young people develop leadership competencies makes them better able to solve community problems and enhances their civic participation (O’Brien & Kohlmeier, 2003)

That’s why at (TDI), we are committed to providing youths and young adults the moral leadership education required to revive and re-orient their character and person. As you are already aware, education is development. It creates choices and opportunities for people, reduces the twin burdens of poverty and diseases and gives you a stronger voice in the society.

For nations, it creates a dynamic workforce and informed citizens, able to compete and negotiate globally; opening doors to economic and social prosperity.

At (TDI), we are passionate and committed to developing and equipping young people for community and global impact.

OUR VISION

‘’Living your dreaminan ever changing world’’

Everyone is a gift to our world; yet economic, social, cultural and gender barriers are crippling theeffectiveness of the human race. Unfortunately, the young are the most vulnerable.

Most youths and Africa in particular, are faced with poor economic development systems, chronic leadership deficiency, declining education system, increasing poverty and hunger that makes it almost impossible for young adults to pursue their personal dreams. Our passion at TDI is to help the vulnerable and the less privileged understand the realities of this restraining factors, discover their root cause and develop sustainable approach that is all inclusive with the singular aim of pursuing their dreams in life.

At TDI, we do not treat youths as a problem to be solved but rather engage them as we identified their development as the missing link and the solution to the problems we are facing today in Africa. It is therefore our responsibility to help young adults tap into their creative minds, engage their youthful energy and to deploy a global dream that guarantees personal fulfillment and social transformation. At TLDI, we are committed to helping young adults live their dreams and add value to society.
