A World at School recently announced that Chaste Inegbedion, a Rotary Youth Leadership award recipient and UPF Young Ambassador of Peace, is its newest youth global ambassador.
As a Global Youth Ambassador of A World at School in Africa, Chaste will be playing a key role in the global movement of young leaders working together to get every child in school and learning, while also further connecting public spirited individuals and Institutions to help increase support around its innovative range of campaign #GirlsWithTheOrangeBook.
“I’m proud to be partnering with ‘A World at School’ as a Global Ambassador,” Chaste Inegbedion said that he is committed to speak up and take action for education in his community by adopting technology – using SMS platform to crowd-source funds for motherless homes, Girl-Child education, Special and Abandoned Children.
“I have been fortunate enough to work with a lot of Children, Motherless Homes and the Save Pwashikai Campaign in my career, but being selected as a Global Ambassador towards raising awareness of meeting the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) deadline of making education a reality for 58 million children who are still denied the right to education and hundreds of millions more who are not learning has always been my target as an African,” Inegbedion noted that he looks forward to contributing his quota to making the MDGs goal a reality, by working with concerned institutions and bodies like the Lagos State Motherless Homes among others.
His relationship with the Lagos State Motherless Homes would bring the excitement around campaigns like Education Advocates on the continent as well as the rest of the world.
