Junior Achievement Nigeria (JAN), a non-profit economic and education-focused organisation, celebrated its 20th anniversary with a loud excitement in Lagos last Friday, giving awards to various categories of people and organizations that have supported JAN in past years.

Mr Rufai Ladipo a member of the Board of Directors of JAN presented Mo Abudu’s award to her at the colourful luncheon ceremony that took place after the Master Class session at the Landmark Centre where the different aspects of the 20th Anniversary celebration took place.

At the luncheon Lagos state Commissioner for Education Mrs Folashade Adefisayo whose presence graced the occasion, said “I am a proud supporter of JAN. As a matter of fact, I have had the opportunity of working with the organization in different categories and I must say that JAN has been very relevant in our educational system and must be commended for its commitment over the years and for the impact it has been making amount school students, teachers and youths generally.

The Executive Director, Mrs. Simi Nwogugu, who oozed so much joy and happiness during the various parts of the celebrations, said that “20 years has been a long road to travel. That JAN would have just had a party to celebrate this landmark but in line with JAN aspirations on training and development, JAN found the need to introduce a Master class Session who more people could still be impacted even while celebrating the 20th anniversary: And awards given to those who deserve such.”

She furthermore said that Junior Achievement (JA) which started in America a century ago was launched in Nigeria in 1999 with the aim to grow exponentially digitally so as to reach a million more youths. ‘We are dedicated to empowering young people to succeed in a global economy and has helped bridge the gap between the classroom and the workplace. After two decades, our core aim of preparing young people for the real world remains as important as ever. And we will continue to extend our goal of reaching more and more youths, to touch their lives, showing them how to generate and effectively manage wealth, create jobs for their communities, as well as apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace and skills that are germane to securing their financial future.

The celebration climaxed with a dinner in Lagos
