According to him, Makoko Tour seeks to raise ethical and dedicated entrepreneurs in the city of Makoko, the biggest slum in Africa. We have designed a key performance indicator to checkmate the progress of our beneficiaries in other to make such that there is a sustainability in the system. We seek to give out 10 sewing machines to highly skilled individuals in the area of sewing and also give out 400 mosquito nets to the residents of Makoko, all for free.

“The beneficiaries will have to undergo a competition on the 8th December, 2018 which will help us to get the best hands on people who know how to sow or design clothes with sewing machine.

Having chosen 10 individuals as winners, we will dedicate to each of them a direct mentor that will monitor their progress and report back to us as a foundation. That way, we can always improve the success of our beneficiaries without leaving them behind.

“Again, I believe that when we have real people, we create real stories and together we make a real change. As Nigerians, We all have a new opportunity so long as we do not become pessimistic about the way things are moving or the situation of our country. We have a new opportunity to give hope, help lives, and empower the next person to us.
