WHAT WE DO
The North East Business Enterprises Rehabilitation Programme (NEBERP) is an initiative of Nigeria Entrepreneurs Forum in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment aimed at providing support mechanisms towards rehabilitating the businesses (MSMES) affected by the Boko Haram insurgency in the six state of the North East zone.
The devastating effects of insurgency in the North East have created high level of poverty, unemployment and loss of viable business enterprises and other means of livelihood. While the Nigeria Government through its National Emergency Management Agency as well as the international donor agencies has intervened much of the activities have focused on humanitarian relief. The NEBERP programme focuses on efforts directed at the displaced MSMES and how they can be rehabilitated through funding assistance to;
- Motivational training programmes to bring about emotional healing and regain their entrepreneurial zeal.
- Entrepreneurial training initiatives for youth and women to enable them contribute meaningfully to economic growth.
- Supply of equipment and tools for enterprise start-up and resuscitation.
The NEBERP programme is open to support from individuals, agencies and governments.
