Alfred A. Agunbiade Memorial Foundation founders Caprice and Victor Agunbiade saw the youth crisis in Nigeria and simply knew they had to do something to ensure the potentials of these youth are channeled in the right direction. Victor Olusegun Agunbiade, the only male child in the family was born into an Anglican family of seven; Mr. and Mrs. Alfred A. Agunbiade; and his four sisters in Ijebu-Ode, South-Western, Nigeria. His father taught him each passing time; confidence-building, be the best in what you do, and respect people he may encounter throughout his life. That advice stuck into his head and he would use these pieces of advice as a benchmark to set targets for himself in everything he does and to always have it in his sub-consciousness not to undertake anything he does with a mere symbolic gesture.
Victor’s father being a trained teacher and taught for forty years knew the importance of education and instilled that in Victor. After Victor’s award winning from the Navy went viral in July 2020, he decided to celebrate his birthday on 24SEP, 2020 different by organizing an essay competition among Nigeria youth titled, “The Nigeria Of My Dream”. From the essay submissions, Victor and Caprice were able to see the need to act quickly and harness the skills and talents of over 60% of the population left without hope of better tomorrow. Immediately programs for leadership training and mentorship were developed. Propelled by the importance of Youth Empowerment, Education and Success (YES), Alfred A. Agunbiade Memorial Foundation was born.
