Speaking at the occasion, Prof. Abubakar Gwarzo, who is also the President of the Association of Private Universities of Africa urged the beneficiaries to make the best use of the money to establish their businesses in order to be self-reliant adding that the children of the poor could achieve their aspirations in life if they utilise their time and opportunity given to them. 

He also advised the women that received the training on make-up to try as much as possible to extend the training to other women who were not opportune to attend the training as it is the only way they could be self-reliant for sustainable development in the country. 

Maryam Isah, who is one of the trainees who that received the N50,000 from the Foundation said the money would give them the opportunity to establish the business on what they were trained as lack of start up capital was one of the major challenges confronting most of the trainees. 

Another beneficiary, Hanan Muhammad, commended Prof. Abubakar Gwarzo for the gesture saying she never expected the money which would go a long way in boosting the make-up business in their respective areas. In his remarks, the Director of the Foundation, Dr Musa Abdullahi Sufi said that empowerment is part of the Foundation’s corporate social responsibility.

AAG-Foundation Chairman/Founder message.

It’s been a busy and long year for the foundation’s strategic implementation of activities amidst our collective fight to defeat the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite these tough rides, there are quite a lot of things to be so much grateful about especially looking at the huge achievements recorded so far which couldn’t have been accomplished without a great and dedicated team. These and other successful initiatives implemented both locally and internationally will continue inspiring us as we move to another great year ahead: 2022.

Without a doubt, the year 2022 for us at AAG-Foundation is going to be a year of intensive community empowerment, voice amplification and accountability, strengthening good governance, building the capacity of local CSOs, increased partnerships with international and local development partners and even government to mention but a few.

As we review successes recorded in the year under review (2021) due to our activities in Africa including Nigeria, Niger, and other countries, the team recognizes the important role of strengthening community stakeholders in initiating and sustaining development efforts.

“Human-Centered Design Technical Support for Sustainable Impact” is our slogan in 2022. A community-driven approach which will direct all our interventions in an effort to provide education, potable water, support the healthcare system, and research for development among other high-impact initiatives.

Across it all, we have succeeded. Now is the time to applaud worthy times which wouldn’t have been without interventions and touching lives at the grassroots from Sabon Layi Kara community in Gwarzo LGA, Nigeria to Maradi in Niger up to Togo. We are pleased with our immense impact and the support we got.

Interestingly, at the moment the AAG-Foundation team is taking a moment in reflecting on all we have accomplished as we are winding down the new normal year. These achievements will be published in our upcoming Annual newsletter and infographics.

Some key highlights of the year achievements include; over 700 scholarships awarded (BSc, Masters, and PhDs), donating luxurious school buses to over 6 public and private universities among others.

Additionally, the Foundation supported the enrollment of over 30 vulnerable children and youth to study from Primary to universities and supported school fees to over 50 students studying in higher intuitions across Africa.

Furthermore, hundreds of students WAEC and NECO fees were paid, 131 poor women including people with disabilities on business skills were trained and funded each with N30,000, 100 orphans and vulnerable young girls were also trained on modern makeup, and funded each to get all the business items required.

The Foundation also constructed 11 blocks with 22 classrooms including tables and chairs, 3 teachers’ offices, and 12 toilets in Male and Female secondary schools and intervened in many radio and TV programs, creating awareness on health, education, and other development issues. These are indeed very key summaries.

I wish you all hitch free celebrations this period with your families, friends, and colleagues’ home and abroad.

Stay Safe, be vaccinated to protect yourselves and your families from Omicron and other COVID variants.

Thank You
