Exciting Announcement: EI Scholarship

Warmest Greetings!

I am pleased to announce that Busayo was selected as the recipient for the Empowerment Institute Scholarship. This was a challenging decision for Gail Straub and David Gershon, founders of the Institute, who made their decision based on recommendations from the mentors.

Please join me in congratulating Busayo on this next leg of her journey!

And don't forget! We will be selecting three correspondents to come to the States for a speaking tour, plus finding innovative and compelling ways to continue our work together.
