Coming up with homegrown solutions to our problems– interventions that are compatible with our environment. Also, I’m on a journey to self-reliance.
There is a proliferation of non-governmental organisations in Nigeria, and many of them don’t have genuine motives. This affects the way recipients of a particular intervention would receive another intervention. For instance, if a NGO with a genuine motive goes to a community to carry out an intervention, the chances that the people would listen is becoming low because they are tired. One spends so much time trying to get the attention of people.
Another challenge is funding. Because of the fake ones around, donors are finding it more difficult to trust local NGOS.
As an individual and an organisation, we strategise every quarter of the year and have a training to build our capacities, better position ourselves and drive interventions that would draw meaningful development and impact to our country and beyond.

When I am not at work, I try to catch up with friends. I also go to the cinema or the beach. But, I spend more time with family.
