MENTOR-PROTEGE HUB

Group 1 (7)

After our 2018 research these were some of our findings, Africa currently is battling with numerous challenges, some of them are illiteracy, poverty, violent, terrorism, unemployment, inequality, crime, and abuse. All these challenges take a root from bad leadership. Africa will never be truly free until it has good leaders. The kind of leadership that will change Africa is not that which is elected every 4 years at the polling booth. The leadership that will change Africa is a total overhaul of our cultural attitude as Africans. We must begin to see the world has a jigsaw, this mean that if one is misplaced then we all fail.Africa must go back to dig the UBUNTU value. To change and shape culture, the educational sector is a very important sector to invest in. Politicians have come and gone, they have invested huge amount into infrastructure and system that end up been crashed by the ignorance and bad attitude of individuals. Politicians don’t want invest much in education because it is a long term investment. It is an investment that is slow and cannot be harvested immediately. If Africa will truly achieve its potential, it will start from the school and family not from the hospital, government house, legislative house or court room. Africa must massively invest in grooming and educating the mind of children and young people for socioeconomic growth and development.

With a growing need of leaders across Africa in every sector, there is a need to raise a new breed of trans-generational leaders. This can be seen through our public office, technology and private sector. Leaders are made not born. In 2015, Akinnike Michael took on mentoring 5 young people, he monthly had time to speak, inspire and encourage them through his daily routine and exploit. They got inspired by his humble beginning and his drive to succeed. As time went by they all went into the university and today all of them are succeeding in their endeavors. A few of this proteges will be on the spotlight in our subsequent communication.

As we look forward to 2020, we are starting the full scale of our Mentor-Protege Hub where young people(proteges) are connected with young leaders in their community in small cells. In this small cell young people will find a supporting system to build the 3Cs of Leadership namely; Character, Competence and Commitment.

It is a year long project where every months proteges meet mentors across 20 locations(Lagos, Ibadan, Uyo, Jos and more) in Nigeria to share, discuss and act on subjects around leadership. In 12 months we hope to build a strong leaders with strong character(values) and competence. The 12 months will test their commitment to leading a life of role-model in their community.

We are sure that this will be a life changing opportunity for both proteges and mentors who enrolled in this year long project.

pp

Opportunity comes but once they say,that is why I don’t toil with anyone I come across.Few months ago my mentor, the founder of Young Protege Leadership Foundation,Tobi Michael Akinnike told me about a two weeks internship programme organized by Ola foundation. And he told me to fill the form as soon as possible.

I checked the link he sent to me and as I was filling the form I saw different categories they will be training the interns on.As a debater, i was looking for a platform I could express myself but saw categories like online marketing, fashion,baking, coding,leather works etc so I decided to choose leather works.I submitted the form and some weeks later I was called to be interviewed,I pass the interview and I was chosen to learn how to make slippers and sandals at shoe speed.

During and after the internship programme I have made different kind of slippers and sandals.My page on face book is “Dmf quality”,that is where you can find my works.

This are some of his works.
