I am Abayomi Rotimi Mighty; you can call me ARMA meaning Abayomi Rotimi Mighty the Ambassador.
Youth Action Project in Ijebu Ode trained me as a peer health educator over 14 years ago. Since then, I have been a youth advocate.
I was the African Youths Spokesperson at the LEGENDARY AFRICAN LEADERS SUMMIT ON AIDS, TB and other INFECTIOUS RELATED DISEASES where I had the opportunity to speak for the African Youths. The speech contributed immensely to the success of youth/adult partnership in Africa and I am so privileged to be the one to have presented it. Till date, it is one of the finest speeches ever presented by UN Youths. i was chosen by UNICEF to present the speech.
Ever since 2001, I have been in my town training leaders. I feel humble to have trained over 800 leaders from Ijebu Land in the last 10 years (from 2001 till date and it is still ongoing).
I am a grassroots youth to the core and that is why I have not been involved at the national and global level of youth advocacy (though I am one of the GREAT PIONEERS of it all. My too much involvement with local programmes has taken my attention away from internet, which has robbed me of a lot of opportunities.
NOW I AM SET:
After 10 years of active grassroots youth development activities in Ijebu Land of Ogun State, I have many inspiring stories to tell the world. I now have a laptop that is connected for 24 hours. I am ready to SPEAK OUT the TRUE GRASSROOTS LANGUAGE for the purpose of INSPIRATION and EXPERIENCE SHARING.
MY NEW JOB:
I just got a job as the Project Manager of Ade Grange Child Foundation, an NGO founded by Nigeria's former Minister of Health and one of the world's leading Professor of Paediatrics Professor Adenike Grange. The NGO is committed to the development of the child and the mother (women). It will interest you to know that Professor Grange headed the NGO that established the Youth Action Project that trained me up in the 90s; so I feel fulfilled to be working with my Mother-Mentor.
I am writing my first book on my experience as a grassroots development worker for over 10 years. I will release the detail as soon I finish writing it.
My vision is to RAISE GREAT PEOPLE that will become GREAT GOD'S WAY and will bring GREAT CHANGE to the world at LARGE. (My website will be on very soon to explain this better)
IT IS TIME:
It is time for an extremely creative approach towards development.
Thanks for reading my short profile. Hope it was exciting a bit.
