Our goal for a better tomorrow will address poverty alleviation, promoting zero hunger, accessibility to quality education and informative healthcare for women as we support for gender equality.
The gift of a better tomorrow provides HOPE. With hope, we can look towards a brighter future.
From a philanthropy perspective, my parents embedded in me and my siblings the value and reward of giving back. For as long as I can remember, I have always felt a longing to help people; to create a positive impact in anyway possible.
I was inspired to start AZŌNETĀ as I recognized the devastating impact of COVID-19 in my home country. As much I frequently donated to charitable organizations in the past, I felt the need to create a big impact.
This is why I started this organization. It is my desire that AZŌNETĀ will inspire others in addressing the global challenges that are before us today.
With empathy, will and a team that share common goals, I believe in my heart that I have created a sustainable organization that can make a difference in people’s lives.
I am a teacher as well as the Chief Operating Officer for AZŌNETĀ, a title I wear with pride. My dedication to the work we do here at AZŌNETĀ is an amalgamation of different facets of my life
First and foremost, I love being a teacher, but it is not an easy job and I have an endless number of resources at my disposal. So, I can understand the struggles that educators in Africa must face themselves.
Lack of proper training, inadequate resources, and minimal funding must make teaching children in African countries that much more challenging, so I wanted to help.
Secondly, I will refer to this quote: “There comes a point in everyone’s life where it is more important about what you can give then what you can get” My journey to finding AZŌNETĀ is born from the understanding that this quote embodies. When you reach a certain age in your life you begin to wonder what you’ll be remembered for, the differences you made in this world and lives you touched. I needed to start giving back to those less fortunate than myself. The more work we do, seeing the difference we are making motivates me beyond words, so here I am, part of Team AZŌNETĀ and trying my hardest to “Build A Better Tomorrow”.

Growing up, my mother valued education that’s why she sacrificed and dropped out to see her siblings through school. She started a small business where she made money and her 8 siblings were able to go through school and now, they are teachers, environmentalists, business men and doctors. She went ahead and brought children from each household of relatives in the village so that they could study in town and go back home to make it better and also develop the community.
Some are now settled with very good jobs while others are still in school. With this I came to realize that the best way to give back to the community is through education.
I became a support teacher in rural schools to help those who cannot make it to town schools and l am providing them with an inclusive holistic education that involves everyone and at the end of it they leave with skills that will help them through life. Through AZŌNETĀ, I will continue with this passion to make education attainable to all children in rural areas.
