Our services are aimed at empowering our members to
become self reliant and also to empower others in their communities. Our hope
is that opportunities will be created to bring hope to our members and the
community at large.
Entrepreneurial Education and Training
This is our core area of competence. Entrepreneurship is a key driver of every economy. Wealth and
a high majority of jobs are created by small businesses built by entrepreneurs,
many of whom go on to create big businesses. People exposed to entrepreneurship
frequently express that they have more opportunity to exercise creative
freedoms, higher self esteem, and an overall greater sense of control over
their own lives. As a result, many experienced business people, political
leaders, economists, and educators believe that fostering a robust
entrepreneurial culture will maximize individual and collective economic and social
success on a local, national, and global scale. It is with this in mind that
the I-SMILE Business Institute was developed to prepare our members to succeed
in an entrepreneurial economy. The training is on-line and all
members are encouraged to take part as it will open their eyes to more
Skill acquisition is the ability to be trained on a particular task or
function and become expert in it. Skills open doors to greatness. A skilled man
speaks with confidence while unskilled is filled with fear. The young, old,
beautiful, handsome and the ugly need skills for better performance. This is an
important tool for achieving success in life. Skill Acquisition will help for
self employment, creation of diverse job opportunities, generation of
employment, enhances productivity and helps in reducing crime. We encourage our
member to be part of these skill acquisition programs. It cuts across
difference fields of life. It will definitely change your life and open up more
opportunities for you.
Financial Empowerment through one-time targeted saving
We believe that every human should have free access to better livelihood;
we believe it is a right and not a privilege.
Therefore as volunteer member of I-SMILE FOUNDATION, we will financially
support your business, help you to acquire assets, fund your education pursuit,
help you acquire machinery for your business, buy cars and properties, etc. We
empower you to achieve your dream future.
Scholarship and Infrastructural development in
We offer scholarship to under privileged children and youths that are
nominated by our volunteer members. We believe that everyone should be given
equal opportunity in life to maximize their potential and one of those opportunities
is access to education. Education helps
us with many things, but most importantly, it empowers an individual to think,
question, and see beyond the obvious. Education broadens our horizon and gives
us a better understanding of the world around us and how things work.
Educated people are better positioned to contribute
positively to society, and even towards the environment, as they understand the
implications of their choices and actions. Need we say more, for
us to give our children a better tomorrow; we must give them quality education
We also support infrastructural development in education sector in rural
communities nominated by our volunteer members. We believe that our children
especially those in rural communities should enjoy quality education
infrastructure with those in the urban cities. We construct class room blocks,
donate books, chairs and desks, computers and provide access to Internet facilities to our schools in the rural communities.
