The RISE National Youth programme has helped me to achieve self – discovery. Thank you RISE Networks.

Ganiya Aminat Olajuwon - Biology Department, 400 Level

I was privileged to know about RISE when they came to Kaduna in October 2010 for the RISE NATIONAL YOUTH FORUM event usually done nationwide. Since that encounter, I was really surprised that here in Nigeria we have such an organization wheeled at impacting the lives of Nigerian Youths through Technology, Education, Management Skills, Motivational Messages and Books, Media e.t.c. I wanted to be a part of the mission and vision so I ensured I got the opportunity to meet with Toyosi and was blessed and I ended up becoming a volunteer rep in Kaduna. I fortunately spearheaded the #BringBackTheBook initiative in NTA KADUNA which touched so many lives here in Kaduna and a great success nationwide.

Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen’s story was the high point of that memorable event for me. I was touched and inspired by his experience in the Movie Industry. Thank you RISE Networks for such a wonderful experience. Skill is Definitely King.

Shina Adesanya - Benson Idahosa University

Wow!!! If I am to start explaining how RISE Networks has impacted my life positively, I probably wouldn’t have the luxury of time to do that. Nevertheless, I would still recount a little bit of my experience with the organization.

It all started when Mrs. Toyosi Akerele-Ogunsiji came to one of the RCCG churches where I reside at Mafoluku, Oshodi area of Lagos state. Although I was not present at the event, my wife who was in attendance, spoke to me about Mrs Toyosi and she was so enthusiastic about it.

Some of the things she highlighted was how articulate, vibrant and eloquent Mrs Toyosi was at the event. Although my wife loves motivational speakers, but with Mrs Toyosi there was a difference and this got me thinking and wondering who this person that is tickling my wife’s fancy is.

As at that time, Mrs Toyosi had already made a name for herself such that the First lady of the United States of America – Michelle Obama, referred to her as one of her personal inspirations in a televised address in America. This prompted me to want to know her better, so I sent her a friend request on facebook but I got a message that she had reached the maximum friends’ limit and I had to resort to just following her.

I was in attendance during Rise Networks’ commemoration of the United Nations’ International Youth Day event organized last year, where lots of public figures like: Ms. Kate Henshaw; Hon. Patrick,; Former Governor of Cross-River State, Liyel Imoke; and other speakers were present at Unilag.

Although I had to be absent from work that memorable day, but it was worth my while and it was an awesome event. I discovered how she has been growing the network and recently the new turn in agriculture that has been one of the major focus lately has really caught my attention as a graduate of Animal production from a Federal University in Nigeria. That has really awakened and encouraged me that there is hope for graduates of Agriculture in Nigeria.

I have always been an ardent follower of her work, within and outside the country, because it makes me optimistic and do positive things.

Finally, there is no doubt that Rise Networks has really impacted me greatly and I would like to condole with her on the demise of her Chairman Mr Gamaliel Onosode. May his soul rest in perfect peace….

Long Live Mrs Toyosi Akerele- Ogunsiji,

Long Live Rise Networks,

Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria.

RISE IS PART OF MY SUCCESS 01: OLUFEMI WRIGHT - Graduate of Animal Production, Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State.
The RISE Networks event was filled with seasoned speakers who had rich content to share with us. It was a mind blowing and revealing session for me. I realised that Nigeria as a country is blessed with so much resources and it is high time for the youths of this great nation to look beyond oil and embrace other sectors of the economy as the way forward.

It is with great delight and humility, that I write my RISE Experience over the last six (6) years of my encounter with the RISE NATIONAL YOUTH FORUM (RNYF) in Lagos and Ogun State.

In September 2009, I was opportune to serve as a volunter for the RNYF in Abeokuta, with that single act since 2009 till date, Rise Group has Instilled in me the spirit of volunteerism within and outside my immediate community. RISE NETWORKS under the able mentorship of Mrs. Toyosi Akerele-Ogunsiji, has been able to alter my MINDSET and as well galvanize my ENERGIES towards hardwork, leadership and the power of synergy.

The RNYF is and always has been for me a great opportunity to serve and contribute to youth development in Nigeria. Been a volunteer leader for such a long time, in Lagos and other states of Nigeria where this great movement has been to, presented me with the unique experience of working with a Sister and Mentor, Toyosi Akerele as well as the hundreds of young volunteers i met and worked with over those years. If time and chance permits me again, i won’t hesitate to be a part of the family again.
