In an era where education has taken grounds in the global quest to impact change and
motivate the youth, the need for innovation and a paradigm shift to generate change has
become prime in the vision of most organizations.
One recommendable organization that is profound at the realization of the ideas of young

IHAV’s empowering activities that include its flagship international project conferences, seek
to channel the output of these youth in working towards accomplishing the sustainable
