The Shell LiveWIRE programme was initiated in 1982 in the United Kingdom and has been replicated in 24 countries where Shell operates over the last three decades.
In Nigeria, the programme was launched on 27th March 2003 to provide access to training, business development services and start-up capital to establish and expand youth-owned businesses.
To date, the programme has trained 5,575 Niger Delta youths in enterprise development and management. Out of this number, 2,792 young people were further assisted to set up their own businesses through start-up awards.
These young entrepreneurs have created employment opportunities for others, thereby contributing to the wider reduction of youth unemployment and poverty in the region.
