As it can be: WHAT YALI IS DOING.

Hey hey hey! I remember how excited I was when I just found out about Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). I read basically everything on their website and have completed 4 of their courses so far. YALI is an initiative started by the U.S Government under President Barrack Obama in 2014. 'The Young African Leaders Initiative, or YALI, is not just a fellowship, or an online community, or a place to go for regional leadership training. YALI is all three!' (As seen on their site). (more…)

Hey hey hey! I remember how I had gone round looking for internship at "big" oil companies last year. None called me back and I didn't want to sit home doing nothing for 3 months. A friend then linked me with the Executive Director of AYECI Africa and after an interview, I joined the family. I can say without doubt that my internship here was what stamped my love and respect for social development. (more…)

Hey hey hey! If you're new here, welcome! Wednesdays are for social talks and to showcase how people and organizations are doing great things to make Nigeria and Africa better. Today's spotlight is on LEAP AFRICA, an organization started by Mrs. Ndidi Okonkwo Nwuneli, MFR, 14 years ago before the age of 30. What I love most about the founder was that she had the option to stay in the U.S but came back home to work in the social sector.

As it can be: What makes you angry?

Hey hey hey! Good day beautiful people of God. I'm back....lol. I'm wondering where I went. Can we just begin from the end? WHAT MAKES YOU ANGRY? I remember how mad I was about homeless people in Ghana. Everyday, I complained to my roommate while we walked to school and I kept asking people for numbers I could call to pick people off the streets. There was none. (more…)
