RE: LOLA OJO'S MAD PROJECT

In Educare Trust, there are three questions that usually follow the MAD syndrome. The questions are:
1. Are you MAD?
2. Are you MAD enough?
3. What is your MAD legacy?
Lola Ojo has answered these three questions correctly from her intention and actual behaviour. For example, a company that puts less than 1% of its annual profit after tax into Corporate Social Responsibility is MAD but not MAD enough and that could be a tiny drop in a sea of ignorance. If there is no proper baseline study for the application of that less than 1% CSR, that will become a bad MAD legacy and also a mismatch of CSR. Lola Ojo did a proper baseline study before coming up with her noble idea. She is also MAD enough because of her robust background and what she now opted for. The recent work we did together could be found here: http://www.nifi.org/news/news_detail.aspx?itemID=11953&catID=24. It's under Educare Trust (Nigeria)- A Workshop on Naming and Framing Issues For Democratic Problem Solving. We should rally round Miss Funmilola Ojo in nuturing this germinating seed. Like she rightly said, invest your wealth in the less priviledged youth and watch your dividends grow. A FORTUNE not shared is unFORTUNATE and a misFORTUNE. If this becomes a featured blogger, this will be the second time that an issue surrounding the establishment of youth centres in every ward in Nigeria will achieve this feat.
