  • Meeting with Ajegunle.org graduates this morning, to discuss the Graduate Loan Scheme (GLS) sponsored by Microsoft West Africa’s CTS program #
  • Great to see trainees of the Ajegunle.org project from all the sets under one roof! Ugo (the program manager) is kickstarting the meeting… #
  • So cool to hear some of the trainees (who now earn income as entrepreneurs/interns) offer to buy application forms for other Ajegunle youth! #
  • In appreciation for Microsoft’s support of the GLS, 16 trainees have volunteered to coordinate the “Go LIVE!” day in Ajegunle on May 29! #
  • I love this! The project’s graduates have obviously embraced the idea of a “trust community” to ensure that all loans are repaid. #Ajegunle #
