You remember our vision?
"A modern Kwara where Innovators and Entrepreneurs in the state become great employers of labour and their products and services become the pride of Kwara and Nigeria as whole"
What about our mission?
"To build a community of Innovators and Entrepreneurs in Kwara who are equipped with necessary tools and skills to become world class and ensure that through collaborative efforts their products and services are well packaged and promoted across the globe."
12th of August is the day declared and celebrated as the International Youth Day. This year’s theme was, ‘Safe spaces for youth: A necessity towards building a safe future in this millennium’. The Kwara state government ceased this opportunity to launch the ‘Kwara Youth Reinvention Programme’ under the office of the Senior Special Assistant to the Kwara State Governor on Youth Empowerment, Alh. Saka Babatunde. We are happy to support the Kwara state in organizing this year’s International Youth Day and to lead smart working young entrepreneurs to the exhibition stand saved for the youth.

During the International Youth Day programme, our vision gets clearer as some members of our community made us proud with their made in Kwara products and services. The governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, his entourage and more than 2,000 attendees were also proud!
The following exhibited made-in-Kwara products by youth and CoinKwara members would wow you!
Perfect and lovely made footwear from Afeez Oduola's company, Odunola-Efizzy Enterprises. Afeez is presently under the incubation project of CoinKwara programme. He stole the day with his Aso-oke (textile material) slippers which caught the eyes of many including the Kwara state governor who later won it as a gift.
Thank you Afeez, Alh. Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara State governor) was so happy.
