Embassy of Hungary set to partner with the Ugwumba Leadership Center

The Acting Ambassador, Embassy of Hungary in Nigeria, Dr. Gabor Krauss has indicated their interest to partner with the Ugwumba Center for Leadership Development in Africa as well as commended the Center for its various job creation programs for youths and women in Nigeria.

He said this today in Abuja during a courtesy call on him by the Management of the Ugwumba Leadership Center at the Embassy.

Addressing the Acting Ambassador and his colleagues, Judit Beres, the Economic Counselor and Chris Eruba, Project Manager at the Embassy, the President of the Center, His Excellency, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu informed them that he founded the Center in 2018 in line with his vision of taking millions of youths out of the streets.

According to him, “our youths are highly talented but lack the mentorship, the enabling environment and the support they need to achieve their dreams in life. That is why I founded the Center in 2018 in order to contribute our quota in changing the status quo.”

He thereafter invited the Ambassador to the grand finale of this year’s Ugwumba Enterprise Challenge, scheduled to hold on December 12, 2023 and called for the support of the Embassy to advance the scope of the Center’s job creation programs in Nigeria.

Earlier in his introductory speech, the Executive Director of the Center, Remy Chukwunyere announced that the Center’s mandate is to raise a new generation of leaders and entrepreneurs for Africa through training, mentoring and startup financing.

Mr. Chukwunyere informed that since inception in 2018, the Center through its flagship project called the Ugwumba Enterprise Challenge has supported the birth of over 5,000 SMEs in Nigeria and is preparing to announce the Call for Applications for the 2023 edition of the startups challenge.

Also, on the delegation were: one of the Center’s Advisors, Victoria Odimba and an official of the Center, Mr. Josephat Okafor.
