A Qualified Social Worker, Founder and Executive Director of Centre for Rural Health and development [CRHD] formerly known as Centre for Rural Reproductive Health & Development [CRRHD] which is a rural specific, adolescent oriented , community driven Non Governmental Organization [NGO] that seeks to contribute to the curbing/reduction of the spread of HIV/AIDS amongst under served and neglected rural populace in South West Nigeria, West Africa using integrated community development approaches.Also into community and human capacity development, youth mentoring, skill acquisition training, women empowerment, agricultural development and other related services.

I have a passion to leave this world better than I met it and that is my primary motivation for becoming a "Social Entrepreneur" and "Change Agent" .

I believe that political platform should serve as a means to further the sustainable development of the masses & communities and not as a means to embezzle state funds as such I contested the Chairmanship /Mayoral post of my Local government Area [Irewole LGA, Osun State, Nigeria] in 2002 under the platform of the Alliance for Democracy AD, but lost the election.

I believe that the Millennium Development Goals [MDGs] to make the world a much better place by 2015 can be realized if all hands are on deck worldwide to collaborate, partner and network together.

I believe in the "Power of Synergy" that two good heads can get the job done faster and much better. As such; I am interested in collaborating and partnering with like-minded individuals all over the world.
