Amicky Carol Akiwumi has has just returned from an incredible journey to Nigeria (Lagos) and Ghana (Accra and Tema) where she led the Money4YOU team to equip hundreds of aspiring entrepreneurs, women, young people, caregivers and high school students with financial literacy and entrepreneurship skills, knowledge and confidence.
Money4YOU is a non-profit organisation that exists to eradicate the economic inequalities experienced by under-represented youth, nonprofits and entrepreneurs. Formed in 2014, its vision is a world where disadvantaged and marginalised communities thrive because they have access to financial management education and the confidence to engage in enterprise.
Says Amicky: “The impact we’ve witnessed is truly remarkable! In collaboration with local partners, we’ve nurtured the seeds of innovation and financial knowledge in these vibrant communities. From budding business ideas to fostering a deeper understanding of financial independence, every moment was filled with inspiration and growth 🌱💡
“To the incredible young ladies at the African Science Academy especially eager to merge their STEM aspirations with entrepreneurship and all the ambitious minds eager to make a difference—thank you for your enthusiasm and drive. Your determination will shape a brighter, more entrepreneurial future for Africa. 🌟”
“To our partners, we’re are grateful for your support and look forward to continuing this journey of empowerment and knowledge-sharing, fostering innovation and eradicating poverty, one step at a time. You, our fellow #WorldChangers make this possible and together, we’re creating waves of change that will ripple through generations to come. 🌊💼”
