Fashioned and Made for Excellence Foundation Executive Director Raphael Stephen was nominated as one of fifteen outstanding social innovators in Africa at the Ideation Hub Africa Talent of The Future Awards 2018. The Award was presented to Raphael Stephen at the Development Dialogue, which is Nigeria’s leading thought-leadership Conference for NGO Leaders, Development Practitioners, Social Innovators, and Entrepreneurs. It provides a rallying point for thinkers, doers, and change-makers who envision a better future for Africa, and are working actively for social good. The Development Dialogue was held at ZONE TECH PARK, GBAGADA LAGOS, Nigeria on Thursday, 29th November 2018 and was themed “Advancing Sustainable Development Impact through effective Human Capital Management”.
Raphael Stephen and 5 of our team members were sponsored to the program and Raphael emerged the overall winner of the Talent of the Future Award in recognition of his exceptional leadership, devotion, excellent work output, teamwork, professionalism and effectively managing human resources towards catalyzing social change and achieving sustainable development impact in Africa.
Raphael also facilitated an expert session on the Volunteer-Led Model: Equipping and Engaging Volunteers for your Social Enterprise, initiatives, and programs.
Fame’s vision is to reach a million secondary school students with the Fame Global Leadership Program by 2030, thereby contributing to the solution of poor leadership education in Africa.
