This morning, I welcomed another CSAAE youth to the United States for a two-week leadership building experience.
Michelle Chinonso Nwagha joined CSAAE’s Emerging African Leaders Program (ELP) in December 2013.A near 1st class graduate of Imo State University, beautiful in and out, Chinonso completed the rigorous ELP three-year ethical and creative leadership nurturing program in 2016.
She was accepted into the Centre’s Network of Effective African Leaders(NEAL) by CSAAEINC Board of Trustees in 2016. NEAL has only one goal: to take over the political leadership of Africa for good.
While here, Michelle, elected president of NEAL in 2017, will address global civil societies at the World Bank and IMF on Friday, April 20. She will attend AU Ambassador’s meeting with African CSOs at the AU embassy in Washington D.C. She will also accompany CSAAE Founder, Rev. Fr. Dr. Godswill Agbagwa to the High Level U.N. Peacebuilding Meeting in New York as observers.
CSAAEINC’s Leadership building experience provides emerging leaders the opportunity to learn from the cream of the wheat as they prepare to run for offices in the future. This trip was facilitated and sponsored by CSAAEINC. Special thanks to Dr. Michael Okolo-1 of Oracle Financials for his financial support towards this trip.
In 2017, CSAAEINC also facilitated similar leadership building experience for a recent FUTO graduate, Pantaleon Uwaleme. While here, Pantaleon addressed Youths at the World Bank and over 200 Nigerian Physicians in Maryland U.S.A. Pantaleon returned to Nigeria to do his National Youth Service. Recently, Pantaleon has been accepted by Notre Dame University, Indiana for a fully funded M.Sc program in public policy and peace building. Pantaleon will return to Nigeria after the program to run for office in Nigeria.
Our dream of a better Africa where all can find support and encouragement to work hard, live with dignity and feel proud to belong may seem to be a difficult one. But we are working day and night towards it.
Michelle, Pantaleon and their peers at CSAAEINC are being prepared to achieve this dream.
Pray for us!!!
