What is your best moment with OneAfricanChild Foundation?
I really have a lot, from OneAfricanChild partnership with Nnamdi Azikiwe hall to donate some gifts items to kids at JCMO, not to forget the outreach we had at Ajegunle with Dream from the slum. It was really impactful.

Joining OAC is one of the best decisions I have made. I have found a lot of love and great human qualities. I have also met new people that over the years have been very impactful to my growth. As volunteers , we need to give our very best and stay honest to the reasons why we opted to join the organization. With that, we would have a better society we would be part to say “I am part of them”
