Diran Olojo - the Soul of Goal Nigeria

Earlier this year, our Nigeria Goal partner, the Youth Empowerment Foundation, reconised Standard Chartered Nigeria Head of Corporate Affairs, Diran Olojo, with the Soul of Goal Award.

Iwalola Akin-Jimo, our national coordinator in Nigeria, had this to say about Diran:

He has being there for Goal, the girls and us. Diran always sets aside time for all Goal meetings and all events both within Lagos and outside. His level of enthusiasm and concern for Goal was such that he gave his personal phone numbers to all the School Principals in Lagos, to call him if they want him to come and meet with the students and spend time with them. Only one principal made this request and he was there. He spent close to 2 hours with not only the Goal girls but other girls. He shared his story with them, life going through a public secondary school, how this impacted on him and where he is now. This actually lets the girls know that they can aspire to be like him.

Thank you Diran for your super commitment!
