NASFAT to empower youths with managerial, leadership skills
Determined to produce responsible young leaders based on global best practice and Islamic principles, the Nasrul-lahi-li Fatih Society of Nigeria (NASFAT) has announced the birthing of ‘HAVEK Leadership Academy’ to teach leadership skills, address mindset issues as well as develop exceptional leaders.
HAVEK, crafted from Haven of Knowledge, is an incorporated entity focused on developing minds based on Islamic leadership principles and is expected to bridge the gap of non-availability of Islamic ethics, values and culture-based leadership schools and programmes in Nigeria.
The pioneer Chair of HAVEK, Niyi Yusuf, said the academy is a deliberate initiative of NASFAT aimed at honing and producing responsible young leaders based on global best practice and Islamic principles in governance, ethics and values for a very desirous future that guarantees sustainable and impactful leadership.
Yusuf explained that HAVEK is guaranteed and envisioned to integrate a combined curriculum of management, leadership development, missionary, entrepreneurship, citizenship and vocational training skills towards breeding well-grounded, resourced, committed, diligent and God-fearing leaders for the future.
“It is hoped that HAVEK will soon become the most respected leadership development academy in Nigeria and beyond, following in the footsteps of NASFAT. More importantly, contributing to the growth and development of ethical based and principled driven leadership thus positively contributing to the creation of a better world,” he stated.
He said the academy has an ambition of training 1,500 young leaders in its first year and 1,000,000 by the end of its 10th year of operations in 2030 through its various virtual and offline programmes including certificate courses, seminars, workshops, conferences, periodicals, articles, journals and book readings focused on Leadership and Islamic ethics.
He noted that HAVEK’s operations would be managed by a team of experts with the support of a governing board of highly respected and tested leaders across the private-public sector and missionary.
