Given the impact of the pandemic on income and business activities, the Federal Government of Nigeria responded to the urgent need for economic recovery by approving a COVID-19 stimulus budget.

In light of this, the Federal Ministry of Youths and Sports Development (FMYSD) has sought to tap from this fund for the express purpose of Human Capacity Training and Development, which in return has the potential to boost future income/profit and economic activities in general through impacting youths with the required digital skills needed in the 21st-century workplace. This training serves to equip participants both for the corporate world of work and for entrepreneurship.

The Green Stimulus is a part of the Economic Sustainability Programme, implemented under the initiative of the Federal Ministry of Youths and Sports Development in Nigeria. This programme is designed to develop a new breed of trained technicians with basic and advanced knowledge in renewable energy and smart agriculture.

The renewable energy component will focus on solar energy development, management, and implementation, while the smart agriculture component will focus on improving agricultural yield and leveraging drone technology to improve Agribusiness.

The Green Stimulus Programme will train and empower 300 youths across the six geopolitical zones through an online access guaranteed and fully paid training.
