Social Entrepreneurs Acquire Grant Application Skills at Sozo Mentorship Series. The Sozo Networks Mentorship Series March 2020 Edition focused on the grant application for Tony Elumelu Foundation. It was an exciting, interactive and educative session as each of the participants was fully engaged by the guest speaker, Mr. Gbenga Ogunbowale from the beginning till the end.
They were free to express themselves, their opinion and questions as he talked expressly on the essentials of applying for Tony Elumelu Foundation grants and the stages involved and what each stage entailed. There was also a short presentation on leveraging on opportunities by Timileyin Awolola which encouraged participants to put into practice what they have learnt. Mr. Oluwaseyi Ale who brought the program to a wrap up talked about Sozo Networks and the activities of the organization.
One heartwarming experience that the participants would cherish for a long time was the opportunity to network after the program. They expressed gratitude for the opportunity and showed interest in volunteering for Sozo Networks. Meanwhile, it is worthy to note that the program recorded 23 participants which included the expected target audience and according to them, their expectations for the program were met.
For the participants, only time will tell when the skills and knowledge they have acquired begin to yield the results they hope to see as they forge ahead in life. Sozo Networks remains committed to democratizing youth opportunities.
