“Unemployment is one of the major problems of the youth, but with innovation, it can get better”
Cause Overview – Why This Cause?
In 2019, 22% of the world’s youth were not engaged in either education, employment or training. This was mainly as a result of the dwindling job opportunities coupled with the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, if measures are put in place to ensure innovation and industrialization, then there is a high chance that the situation can be improved upon.
Inclusive and sustainable industrialization, together with innovation and infrastructure, can unleash dynamic and competitive economic forces that generate employment and income. They play a key role in introducing and promoting new technologies, facilitating international trade and enabling the efficient use of resources.

Why Have We Decided To Partake In This Cause?
Entrepreneurship and employment are fundamental to the mission of TTCJN. As captured in our mission, we hope
To train and mentor students and help them to gain real working experience whilst still in school, with the aim of tackling graduate unemployment. Whilst at it, we imbue the sense of selflessness and patriotism in them through volunteerism activities.
So basically, our entrepreneurial operations and activities are in line with these particular SDGs and The Telescope international is a youth and student development organisation. Hence, anything that affects the youth, is of great interest and of great concern to the organization. We believe that we can help the world achieve the SDGs 8 & 9 through our operations and activities.
Today, The Telescope International invites you to join us to touch lives and make impact together. Our resolve is strong and so is our commitment to see that the objectives of this cause are achieved and great impact is also made in the lives of the community members. However, the more hands we have on deck, the more the impact we can make and the more lives we can touch. Join us or support us and let’s achieve the successes together.
