Meet the Founder
Reverend Femi Akinola is a rare breed, a man with a heart of gold, with deep-seated passion for youths and humanity in general. He is also the founder of Save the African Youth Foundation (SAY-F) with offices in Nigeria and Ghana, a non-governmental organization with passion for street kids. This NGO has contributed immensely to the lot of humanity by picking street kids and destitute children from the gutter and giving them a future by catering for them in school. As we speak, SAY-F has to its credit a total of over two hundred (200) beneficiaries at all levels of education, ranging from Primary to Secondary and even Tertiary institutions.
This same passion is what has driven him to establish Luz de Calcio Media Ltd. He realizes that the average African child/youth is immensely endowed with so great talents but which is being neglected by reason of the fact that the society he happens to find himself pays no attention to budding talents in the area of science and technology. However, any nation or economy that neglects this aspect of life – science and technology – has no hope of greatness or development in sight. Therefore, if only we can pay attention to and harness these budding talents and bring them from their rough and obscure background to the limelight, where they can be seen, helped and encouraged, this would be the beginning of a new dawn for Nigeria and even Africa as a Continent.
It is on this premise that Femi Akinola has decided to share his passion and heartbeat with as many as care to listen and also as many as have the interest of our great nation and continent at heart to join him and embrace this new order.
Femi Akinola is also a business consultant and sits on the board of a number of companies both in Nigeria and outside.
