S.M.I.L.E was born out of a need to raise young leaders and role models, empower the youth to make informed decisions that will help them maximize their potentials, and to equip them to be problem solvers and agents of change in the society.
Over the years, S.M.I.L.E has impacted over 20,000 youth through her unique value based peer mentoring model, youth empowerment initiatives, trainings, programs and outreaches, for Students in Secondary and Tertiary Institutions as well as young Graduates and Professionals.
Our commitment to the development of the youth, is evident in our activities, programs and initiatives; which are aimed at addressing knowledge and skills gaps, pertinent issues and challenges faced by young people, as well as to provide a platform for continuous support and mentoring.
The sheer scope of our work requires us to continuously partner with individuals and organizations who share similar concerns and burden for the youth.
As we continue to build a network of dynamic young leaders and role models who can together usher in a great future, we believe that the youth are not the leaders of the future but are today’s leaders because the future starts NOW.
To inspire youth to discover, release and maximize their potential.
To restore hope to less privileged youth, equip them to achieve life goals and become agents of change in the society through mentoring and innovative leadership development programs.
I pledge to inspire people to discover, release and maximize their potential.
We cherish and nurture every relationship with beneficiaries and partners, treating everyone as family and encouraging collaborations for increased impact.
We believe in sustaining relationships with our beneficiaries, commit the needed time to mentoring, providing continuous support, guidance, counsel and resources to facilitate the achievement of their life goals.
We commit to being the change we desire to see by encouraging the youth to constantly identify and solve problems within their immediate environment and spheres of influence.
