MY NOMINATION FOR THE SPIRIT AWARDS

Wphil
Posted January 6, 2020 from Nigeria

My Nomination for the spirit award is Olanike Olugboji ( Green Girl).

Olanike is an Environmentalist with passion  for protection of the environment,  the Ecosystem, women's rights,  empowerment of  women and youths.  Through her non- governmental organisation, she promotes the use of home made cooking charcoal stoves that emits very little or no smoke at all. Her work extends to  the villages and hamlets where women are given a sense of recognition through group activities. She organises tree planting programs in primary and secondary schools all self sponsored by her. A good listener per excellence, she encourages women and youths to improve themselves through empowerment and self development programs.  My personal encounter with this formidable lady, has helped me tremendously.  Though I  was a company executive for about 23yrs, I became discouraged because my  business of Diagnostic Services was not yielding profit. I closed down the company.  I failed to realise I was running a business without Vision, but blaming others for my failure. Now four years have passed since I stopped not knowing my focus. Happily enough I had opportunity to attend one of her numerous Empowerment programmes towards the end of 2019, where I had a complete turnaround in my perceptions and the innate power in me to achieve greater heights.  Though over 62yrs of age, I am resolved to start anew with greater determination and clear vision of what I want to achieve. A lot of people share their testimonies on how  her empowerment programmes have impacted on their lives.  Her vast knowledge in the use of information technology is amazing. She serves as a resource person in National and international seminars especially on women, youth and the environment.  She is the initiator and chief executive officer of Women Initiative for Sustainable Environment ( WISE). She lives in  Kaduna  which is in the Northern part of  Nigeria . She is a World Pulse  community member

Dear Wphil,
I loved reading about the great effect that Olanike has had on you. Having had the chance to meet her in person myself a few years ago, sealing a friendship I cherish, it is especially easy to understand and celebrate the effect her knowledge and enthusiasm has had on you, and a joy to know that she has so recently led an empowerment program. Thank you for sining a well deserved spotlight on our sister Olanike.
