I formed the Afro in Diaspora Centre in 2010 with the support of my friends and family abroad that believed in the vision. The Centre was founded to support those in Nigeria who live in poverty – to help women, men and children to realise their dreams. The Centre connects African people living in Ireland and help to improve their skills and empower and enable them to be self-sufficient.
I also founded and volunteers with the Afro Cultural Dancing Group - bringing together African women to perform traditional ethnic dancing and entertaining the Irish community with the group’s cultural heritage which started here in Cavan with my close friends and members support our first costume was fund by the peace funding. Since it was established, the group has performed to hundreds of people.
Through her work with her organization Adcenter, I have created different initiatives which are the first of their kind in Ireland; The African History Month Ireland (to celebrate the presence of Africans in Ireland making a positive impact in the month of November), The Afro Fashion Show Ireland (to celebrate International Women Day) and
Roadshow Workshop on A Woman’s World (to share life experience, sexology, relationship, fashion, motherhood, friendship and most of all love). I also created The African Caribbean Diaspora Men Forum; a new initiative to celebrate and engage African men in Ireland with the coming together of Africa Caribbean. Forum
