“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle. Learn to share knowledge with others.” – Bella Victor
Last three years for me personally and as program officer at Sustainable Development Goals Awareness Initiative (SDGsAI) has been about training and sharing knowledge. As a person I have helped our organization to train hundreds of students to take action on the SDGs and set up SDGs Clubs around the country, most of them have however found their passing, indicates interest in Localising the SDGs and solve community issues.
Today, am telling you a story of Rofiat Olayinka, an environmental advocate and one of our mentee at SDGsAI. She learnt so much about SDGs, took action and set up her project, ECOHEROS to fight climate change. She received more trainings at the organization University club and I personally trained her on pitching her idea.
Today at PITCHFEST, Lagos Business School she came second and won a grant for her project and will also been receiving mentorship training for a year at Lagos Business School. Just like I told her last week, go on that stage on be yourself. This is starting point for you and your social Enterprise, more wins.
Also shout out to Oyindamola Johnson, for I told myself after Elevate Your Game 2018 that I am giving myself permission to be and 2019 just keep obeying. More power network, more learning, values and personal development.
