Apply for Hands-On Grant Application 2021 (Age Between 18 – 35 years)

Application for Hands-on programme 2021 has kickstarted, the program is aimed at supporting young people to create positive community impact through volunteering service.

The hands-on programme was initiated by Iso Bassey, a husband, father, social entrepreneur, and avid golfer.


Bassey is passionate about social issues especially as they affect the country – Nigeria and he is from Cross River State, Nigeria.

According to Bassey, who believed that communities can develop when young people take the initiative to solve problems. Sometimes, taking the initiative can be difficult unless there’s someone to hold your hand and support you along the journey. I’m hoping to do just that, he noted.

Years ago, I regularly raised donations and volunteers, and together we executed several community-based projects (Here’s a short video of one of these projects – A story of transformation). What I learned from this experience is that as individuals if we are passionate about issues and willing to act, people will support us.

The Hands-On programme is to support young people (18 to 35 years), who are passionate about community issues and willing to act. If this sounds like you, please read on, and let’s set the ball rolling.
