DEVTRAIN - COMMUNITY AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE started as Hephzibah Missions in April 2014 as a youth based social club and finally metamorphosed into a non-for-profit organization now called DEVTRAIN. The club which comprised of young people was established with a keen desire to assist and equip youths with innovative ideas to excel academically. Realizing that youths have very close ties with their parents in Nigeria it became expedient to include women and men on the programmes of the club.
DEVTRAIN envisions a society where there is equal distribution of available resources for all, RAISING AGENTS OF CHANGE through human capacity building.
DevTrain supports communities to identify and meet needs through different rights based projects and livelihoods improvement activities/programmes to promote entrepreneurship, good health, education for all, empowerment and sustainable livelihoods of rural, semi-urban and urban communities to improve the quality of life of community members across Abuja and Benue State in Nigeria.
