The digital rights advocacy group, The Paradigm Initiative Nigeria in commemoration of its just-concluded AjegunleLIFE and Techtiary Programs feted its partners and volunteers at a cocktail held at Golden Tulip Hotel, Lagos on October 15, 2017.
The opening speech was given by Paradigm Initiative’s Director of Programs, Tope Ogundipe where he said, “Without the support of volunteers, the LIFE program would have folded up long ago. We are grateful to you all; your contribution to the program has led to the empowerment of hundreds of youth. We are here to celebrate & thank you“.
The group program manager, Tosin Abolaji said at Paradigm Initiative, “our digital inclusion programs, Techtiary and LIFE, leverage the support of a pool of volunteers and partners who offer their talent, time and resources. This is an integral of part of what we do in providing better livelihood through the programs. Hence, we do not take their efforts for granted without expressing how grateful we are for their valuable contribution to providing excellent support for our work.”
