Privilege


The privilege of a higher education, especially outside Africa, broadened my original horizon and encouraged me to focus on the environment, women and development in order to improve the quality of life of people in my country in particular and in the African region in general. ~Wangari Maathai

Great humanitarian. Knowledge is the key.

We are lucky to have access to education and hopefully, we utilize our knowledge to better ourselves, the future of our youth and the community at large.

Peace.

That's so gratifying. I feel like I know her, because of my former work in London with such students as her. I don't know her, in fact, but it was what it was all about. I would like to think that on our side, it was equally a privilege, and moreover, an enrichment to work in preparing so many individuals to go home and take up leading roles in developing their countries.
