Access Bank’s Chairman and Honorary Consul to the Czech Republic Dr. Mrs. Ajoritsedere Awosika has been named matron and adviser to the not-for-profit effort meant to remove street children from the streets of Lagos in order to further the success of the innovative Eko Inspires Me project.
Ara, the drummer, is the owner of the NGO “Eko inspires Me.” Speaking while paying a courtesy visit to Awosika at her Ikoyi, Lagos, office, Ara reaffirmed that Awosika was chosen as the matron of the Eko Inspires Me Academy due to her stellar reputation in the public sector, accomplishments in the business boardroom, and passion of humanitarian work.
A program called the Eko Inspire Me Academy was started to help street kids who were considered a danger to society and a threat to quiet living in a modern city like Lagos. The goal of the NGO is to locate, identify, and persuade street boys and girls to leave their dubious lifestyles in order to help them find new homes and get involved in productive activities that will help them grow as people and give them hope for a better future.
Awosika responded by thanking Ara for the honor of naming her as a matron and to the board of advisers. She acknowledged Ara’s success in the cutthroat world of drumming and praised her for standing her ground against the guys. She praised her for being creative, having a strong sense of purpose, and being passionate about her work.
Awosika praised Ara for spending time with the underprivileged and expressed gratitude for Eko Inspires Me Academy. She prayed that the project would expand internationally in line with the United Nations Strategic Development Goals and that it would help the less fortunate around the world.
She prayed that Ara would continue to succeed in all that she did.
