Ogo Maduewesi is an Ashoka fellow, Social entrepreneur, Blogger and aspiring writer. She is the founder and pioneer of Vitiligo Support and Awareness Foundation (VITSAF), the first Vitiligo patient-driven organisation in Sub-Saharan Africa. Diagnosed with Vitligo, a condition in which the pigment is lost from areas of the skin, causing whitish patches, often with no clear cause, Ogo has gone through the various stages of the condition, including the intangible effects it brings on the patient, especially the loss of self-confidence. Living to tell the tale, she lives to serve like-minded individuals who are going through similar situations innovatively. She overcame through my very own ‘Positive Self-image’ skills and guide, this service you can subscribe for. Women, our my primary concern.
A positive self-image enthusiast, Ogo has also founded Ogo Maduewesi Naturals (a Social enterprise) – an initiative focused on promoting Natural living (inspiring Chemical free living and sharing DIY tips), Natural Skincare (developing her brand of body butters 'Ogo Naturals') . Ogo gets to practice her digital media skills here too - creating and updating her own blog, ecommerce, educating people around the world with knowledge about Natural Living.
Only you can make yourself happy - Accept and Love you.
You are what you eat.
You are also what you rub on your skin.
My Vision for the Future
A world where positive self-image and natural living is an envious lifestyle.
