ACT4ACCOUNTABILITY HOST DIASPORA INITIATIVE LAGOS LAUNCH
At the Diaspora Initiative Launch, I pledged an annual financial commitment (to be announced soon) to the Diaspora RiseUp (DRU) Fund. DRU is a campaign dedicated to the coordination and growth of diaspora philanthropy among members of the African diaspora for development in their various home countries.
The goal of Diaspora RiseUP is to identify, build, and invest in the capacity and sustainability of credible local African organizations and social impact businesses meeting the needs of vulnerable populations in their communities.
In Lagos, Nigeria, I have decided to show my commitment to the health and education sectors in the lives of the people in Epe, Ikorodu, Ibeju Lekki and other Lagos communities.
