My name is Ako Ayito, a graduate of computer science, from the University of Calabar and the CEO, AY Cakes & Events. I am an alumna of The Bridge Leadership Foundation and I am happy to have been selected as one of the facilitators for The 2016 Leadership and Community Development programme in rural communities in Cross River State.
The nine (9) hours training for facilitators was educative, motivating, inspiring and tasking. The bond shared with facilitators and the lessons learnt from all the trainers during the TOT was a worthwhile experience, as I realized that I had a responsibility to build my community.
My time spent during the Leadership and Community Development programme was amazing and one I look forward to embark again.
I facilitated the session “Taking Steps Towards My Future”, and it was a good experience for me listen to the students share their experience about life in the rural community and how they are contributing towards the development of their community. The students were engaged through various class activities and case studies and the teachers also did a great job at coordinating the students and ensuring they arrived the training venue on time.
The Bridge Leadership Foundation is doing a great work through this program and has provided a platform for young people like me to contribute towards building our Nation and raising other young leaders.
