Freeman Osonuga Selected for the 2013 OneYoungWorld Summit in South Africa

On September 12, 2013 we received a tweet from Freeman Osonuga, the founder of Heal the WOrld Foundation Nigeria, about his success through the One Young World Summit application. Freeman is one of 22 delegates from 20 Countries that have been sponsored by the MTN Group South Africa to the One Young World Summit, Johannesburg South Africa. He has been an active Desk user and saw an opportunity on the blog that helped him get the sponsorship.

We are excited to read from him. Read his message below.

"As a point of duty, I check the website and twitter handle of Opportunity Desk at least 3 times a week." Freeman Osonuga
In 2010, as a Medical Student and without any formal corporate organisation's financial support, I started a non profit, non governmental charity organisation, Heal The World Foundation Nigeria, with the aim of caring for orphans, physically challenged and less privileged people in Africa.

We have since catered for about 400 children and orphans in Ogun state.

I was selected among the 22 delegates from 20 Countries that are been sponsored by the MTN Group South Africa to the One Young World Summit, Johannesburg in South Africa between October 2-5 and therefore will become a One Young World Ambassador by the end of the summit.

Many thanks to Grace Ihejiamaizu and the Opportunity Desk team for making global opportunities available and accessible to Nigerians and Africans.
