It’s always great to hear stories of Africans around the world conducting inspirational initiatives, and getting recognition for it.
British-Nigerian man, Oladimeji Adisa, who has run the Osun Foundation for two decades, has been honored by UK Prime Minister David Cameron, BBC reports.
He was honored with the Point of Light Award for teaching people about African heritage through his foundation.
The foundation is an arts initiative that hosts a variety of activities including mask making and cookery classes. In addition, the foundation has been involved in several prestigious cultural performances including the Commonwealth Games and the Queen’s Jubilee.
Adisa has also worked with 500 schools around the UK, teaching students about the Britain’s unique multicultural society.
The aim of the Point of Light Awards is “to recognise outstanding individual volunteers who are inspiring others. They were developed in partnership with the Point of Light programme in the USA established by ex President George H. W. Bush.”
