Stewardship Report for JULY and AUGUST
Dear Active Citizens,
I warmly welcome you all to the month of September, the ninth month of our sustainable impact journey. May God continue to give us strength to make more impact as individuals and as an organization.
Permit me to tender my unreserved apologies for not presenting our stewardship report for the month of July. We planned to but we could not due to time constraints and other engagements.
The month of July and August saw us sealing more partnerships with various organizations and strengthening our existing commitments. We are energized every day to leave our organization better and stronger than we met her.
Our usual sustainable impact tradition requires us to identify and appreciate Local organizations that made us proud in previous months. Permit me to charge us to continue the good works in our various communities and beyond.

Few days ago, I attended the 2016 JCI African Leadership Development summit in Nairobi, Kenya. The summit put together by JCI, SARAYA and TICAD VI provide the voice of African’s youth to the Tokyo International Conference for Africa’s development. Our conversation in Nairobi provide a platform for us, to develop a vision for our community across Africa. As your representative at the summit, I joined other young leaders across Africa to commit to the following:
Educate citizens and young people on their role in the development of the continent
Use the JCI Active Citizen Framework to unite all sectors of the society for the creation of peaceful communities.
Change the narrative of Africa by focusing on the opportunities for solutions and making Africa a global player.
Include AGENDA 2063 and the relevant aspirations in annual plans of action of youth led organization by creating hubs that would ensure action is taken towards its advancement
Unite and mobilize all African citizens for the development of the continent irrespective of religion, tribe, gender, age, class and creed
Empower young people with opportunities to develop the skills and knowledge needed to take ownership of Africa
Provide platforms for transnational collaboration that ensures the continent moves forward together for its sustainable development
We must all know that the underlying conviction for the cornerstone of every prosperous society is the respect for human dignity. Ensuring human dignity for all and achieving sustainable African development requires collaboration, leadership and action. Change begins with EACH ONE OF US
