What is RHJCP?
The Renewed Hope Job Creation Programme (RHJCP) is a social intervention programme of the Nigerian government that aims to create jobs and alleviate poverty among Nigerian youths. It was launched in October 2023 by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a successor to the N-Power programme.
The RHJCP is a 5-year programme that targets to create 5 million jobs for Nigerian youths aged 18-35. It will provide beneficiaries with training and stipends for a period of 12 months. After the training period, beneficiaries will be transited into permanent jobs or supported to start their own businesses.
The RHJCP has two streams: Graduate and Non-Graduate. The Graduate stream is for Nigerian youths who have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent, while the Non-Graduate stream is for Nigerian youths who have a secondary school certificate or equivalent.
The RHJCP offers training in a variety of skills, including:
- Creative arts
Beneficiaries of the RHJCP will receive a monthly stipend of ₦30,000 (approximately $75). They will also be provided with health insurance and other benefits.
The RHJCP is a welcome development for Nigerian youths. The country has a large youth population, with over 60% of the population under the age of 35.
