Meet Mr folajimi
My name once again is Folajimi and I have the privilege to be the Chief Administrator of The Panacea Project – a social research organisation committed to solving local problems and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Ibadan. This organisation started back in late 2017 and in the less than one year of our existence, we have successful launched 3 social enterprises: Feed-A-Child Initiative (FACI) that addresses the issue of hunger amongst homeless Almajiri children in Ibadan; Clean City Initiative – that addresses the plastic waste and environmental sanitation problem and the Better Tomorrow Initiative – a mentorship & professional development platform for high school students in public and private schools in Ibadan.
In addition to this, we are in the process of completing our first research h study into the Prevalence of Malnutrition among Homeless Almajiri Children in the Sabo Community of Ibadan. In April 2018, I successfully completed the US Government Young African Leader’s Initiative (YALI) Leadership Program at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), during which I was awarded the YALI Star of Public Policy Award. In August 2018, I was a member of the AMEE Students Task Force where I worked with a team of 69 other student from 40 different countries for the successful planning of the 2018 AMEE Conference in Basel, Switzerland. I am an alumni of the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) Program and in October 2018, I was awarded a lifetime Resolution Fellowship and a Social Venture Challenge Winner at the CGI U Meeting at University of Chicago.
Currently I am finalising work on my first book titled: *The Victory of Grace* as well as the launch of my second enterprise: Infitential Consulting, a firm that would train undergraduates students all over the country on 21st century skills needed to excel in the corporate world.
Most importantly, I am a 4th year Medical Student in the University of Ibadan.
