OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
It is with much enthusiasm that I recommend INGAF.
I am glad to have known the humble beginnings of this organization and advised on various issues touching on its vision, mission and objectives. My interaction with the founder in no little way did assure me of the level of creativity, wit, and analytical thought that is quite rare among young people today. His contagious passion and undaunting vision to transform the minds of both the young and old is just amazing.
As the main driver of this organization, his skills are truly phenomenal – for choosing to pursue a path of nobility and self-sacrifice, I doff my hat for him.
Emmanuel's wide-ranging intellect is such that he would be bored by the status quo. He is ready to assume and excel in worthwhile initiatives across communities of need, and possesses the self-motivation to successfully create and execute initiatives that truly transform lives and communities.
His team compliments his strengths by demonstrating top-notch leadership skills to their credit. It is my humble submission and believe that INGAF, as led by Emmanuel Idiagi, will go far in making Nigeria, Africa and our world a better place.
INGAF is a very unique foundation delivering invaluable services to one of the most important groups of our society – the youths. Education of the youths is the life blood of any country that aspires to be great.
The United Nations, African Union, Economic
Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the European Union and many other international organizations affirm the necessity to educate every child. INGAF touches the core of this by helping to educate Nigerian young minds and it aspires to cover the whole of Africa.
The sincerity, zeal, passion, diligence and dedication with which the vision-bearer of this foundation (Emmanuel) carry, is not less than what I know about him. I have known Emmanuel for a long time and one thing has stuck with his identity – tireless pursuit of education for the youths.
We both had the privilege of teaching students alongside in extramural classes in Lagos. And so, it is with my whole heart that I recommend INGAF and I implore all education-lovers all over the world to support this foundation achieve quality education for every African child for a better future.
We are open to collaboration.
