Let’s Touch Lives On Africa Day

Markengee Touchinglives International

Today is not just any day. It is Africa Day. What is Africa Day to you? To me, Africa Day is a day to reflect on the evolution of our dear continent. It is a day to reflect on our contribution to Africa. It is a day to reflect on our past, present and future actions. It is a day to reflect on the discourse we want to hear, read, write on, perpetuate and see emerge. It is a day to stop procrastinating, stop planning and start making action towards paving a better way of live for our peoples, the men, women and children of our continent. It is a day we come together to put forward a positive vision for African men & women. A vision where Africans will be able to afford great education, where unemployment rates will drop thanks to the abundance of outstanding African entrepreneurs in the continent, where women and children will have access not only to basic education but to all the skills that will give them a fair pursuit of jobs, health, wealth and anything else they will dream of. On this special day, I interviewed a dear friend of mine, fellow Greatness Engineer and incredible advocate of education for all, Ms Ijeoma n. Obiajunwa-Ajiamah, CEO of Markengee group. She is doing a tremendous job in Nigeria. Let’s Touch Lives on Africa Day. Just like Ijeoma, let’s reflect on our role as African children, as African leaders. read more

I met this incredible woman at a Les Brown event my husband and I attended a few years ago. What a refreshing and striking encounter! We immediately clicked! What made this encounter even more special was the fact that we were from the same country.. Gabon. It is a small country with a very small population. We really thought that we would be the only Gabonese citizens in the audience, until she introduced herself : ” My name is Mireille Toulekima, I am from Gabon and I am very excited to attend this event”. Despite the distance, our relationship is growing stronger. Mireille is an  extraordinary woman, wife, mother, mentor, …you name it… she bubbles with energy and definitely knows her purpose in life.
