In 2015, I founded Socially Africa (@sociallyafrica) a movement that teaches people to Be Good, Do Good, and Inspire Good. At Socially Africa, our goal is to build a generation of leaders and problem solvers, that transcends entrepreneurship and professional success.
We believe that giving doesn’t always have to be financial, and that everyone has something to give – Time, Effort, Love, Money, Knowledge. Through personal contributions and crowdfunding, we execute impactful projects that extend beyond donating to people in need.We take time out to be fully involved in the giving process – spending time with the people to whom we are giving.
I started Socially Africa to serve as inspiration to the next generation watching what we do, and how we impact our world, beyond chasing the next job, or working to build a personal life. My cofounders and I, invested funds from our businesses into community development projects. Over the past few years, we have executed our forerunning initiative, Art For A Cause in 16 schools across Nigeria, impacting over 15,000 kids. We have also hosted multiple food drives, run code classes, and given out thousands of Love boxes. In 2020, during the COVID 19 Pandemic, together with my tribe @switchonbootcamp, we launched a campaign called #FundTheFlow, to serve women and girls who were unable to afford sanitary pads during this time. We have distributed over 5,000 packs of sanitary pads thus far, with the intent to address period poverty and general menstrual hygiene amongst women in vulnerable communities.
At Socially Africa, one of our missions is to inject a habit of giving into other people, getting them to contribute to community service too. As a result we are one of the service learning and advocacy partners for the American International School, Lagos, where we work with the kids on initiatives.
