Poverty Alleviation, Youth and Gender Initiative (PAYGI)
Poverty Alleviation, Youth and Gender Initiative (PAYGI) is a core objective of The Clement Isong Foundation (TCIF). It is cardinal to the Foundation’s vision and quest to empower the masses economically, thereby creating jobs and reducing the level of unemployment in the society. It is a leading-edge objective via which the TCIF makes critical interventions in vocational and technical skills training of the youth and women through the implementation of programmes such as the youth Empowerment Scheme (YES) and Women Empowerment Initiative (WEIN). This objective (PAYGI) cuts across all the other objectives of TCIF, and functions in complementarity to the efforts of governments in this regards.
