Abiola Balikis Bankole CEO and Founder, Editor in Chief of Afrokanist magazine, photographer, activist and communication specialists were all present in London to discuss the start of a great initiative and relationship between Ghana and Nigeria through youth empowerment.
The aim of the initiative is to kick start an empowerment program for youths from the Ga Greater Accra region of Ghana with the youths from Igbokoda Ondo, Nigeria. This initiative will be carried out through Iroko Charity owned by Chief Komolafe Omotunde. Iroko charity will be providing skills training workshops and apprenticeships to create opportunities and exposure to different work sectors. In addition to this, they will be creating an opportunity for diasporan Africans to engage and benefit from the initiative, by using the platform to go to Igbokoda or Accra to exchange skills and to learn a bit more about both cultures.
Afrokanist Magazine will also be sponsoring and supporting the initiative, since our core focus is African youth development and knowledge through cultural exchange, cultural celebration and social entrepreneurship. We will be revealing more about the initiative in the near future.
