AGF Success Stories

Since AfriGrowth Foundation brought library to my school, it has changed my reading completely. I was poor in my reading and writing, but with the use of the library, I am confident of my writing and spelling skills. The books are so interesting, I always see myself in another place, as if I was there in the book. I want to say a big thank you to AfriGrowth Foundation for changing my life positively.

I applied to the AfriGrowth Youth Academy because I have a burning desire to participate in Develop for Development Initiative (DDI) course so as to acquire entrepreneurial skills and knowledge that will further transform me into an emerging young leader. Alas, I was wrong! This training did not only equip me with resources to make me a young emerging leader but also helped me with practical hands-on knowledge that will be usable and applicable for the rest of my life.
It is true that I have attended numerous trainings, workshops and seminars in time past but AGF exposed and broaden my horizon in the use of mentoring techniques. Permit me to say I was the luckiest of all the trainees! Why? I immediately put into good use all the relevant skills I was thought in the training to good use. I recalled the interview skills been thought during the training. As at today, I am proud to say I am the Technical Adviser on State Reforms (Business Enabling Environment) of the German International Development Cooperation, Plateau State.

I got to know about AfriGrowth Foundation online, I think it was from Face book, a friends page in June 2012. It was a call for application of the DDI project. I applied on the last day and I scaled through.
AfriGrowth Foundation added a lot of value to me. One of it was the practical trainings that the program provided in the areas of Apprenticeship in poultry and arable farming. I was attached to a farm for training. It was a great one I must confess. Also the network of friends, my trainers and mentors they provided. And as Mummy Keshi will always say: “always step up your bar”.
My word for other young people; Life is a CALCULUS; if you are not differentiated you cannot be integrated.

My Experience after the DDI program was something I can never forget because it was a life time opportunity availed me by AfriGrowth Foundation. The program taught me a lot about life and how to deal with the next person. For instance, the classes we had with different resource persons still help me in my daily life. The leadership skills taught had helped to mould my life into a better me. It gave me the needed desire and urges to be an Entrepreneur and create jobs for others though i have not got the opportunity to live up to my dreams. But I must confess it had been a great foundation for my growth. I now have great business potentials which I will unleash at any slightest opportunity.

The impact of setting up of these libraries in various schools cannot be overemphasized. AfriGrowth has done a lot especially in Bwari Area Council. I sincerely commend Mrs. Dayo Keshi for making efforts to revive the reading culture in Nigeria, as it is obviously going down the drain.

I sincerely want to thank AfriGrowth Foundation for what they did in my school. Before their intervention, most of students were unable to handle books not to mention reading, but now they get so excited about the library that we have to very vigilant in order to monitor how the pupils use their library time.
We are sincerely grateful to AfriGrowth Foundation for their good works.

AfriGrowth Foundation has done marvelous things in my school. They have helped to enhance the reading culture in the school. My pupils can now read and participate in competitions both within the school and between different schools. The library donated by AfriGrowth Foundation has also helped my teachers, especially those teaching core subjects, in the areas of research. They get adequate information from the library to enable them prepare their lesson notes properly. Parents are also happy as the improvement in their children’s reading ability is very visible. The presence of AfriGrowth Foundation has also attracted good works from other NGOs and it has made my school outstanding.
I say a big thank you to AfriGrowth Foundation. Please do not relent in your service to humanity.

I want to thank God for a day like this, because it is indeed a great day for my school. AfriGrowth Foundation has done a lot to improve the lives of these children and I know it will go a long way in encouraging the children to use the library in order to perfect their reading skills. The books are good and wonderful. Although I’m very grateful, I still desire to say, just like the famous Oliver Twist, that it is not enough.
May God bless you in all your endeavours. Thank you very much
