More than twenty scholars of the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders from countries all over sub-Saharan Africa spent the month of July learning what they could about nonprofit organizations and how they serve people here. Fellows Omo from Nigeria and Jerrat from Cameroon shadowed a few programs within Lifestyles for the Disabled.
Life-Wire reporters Michael Cilmi and Joseph Jones had an opportunity to interview Omo and Jerrat. They interviewed the pair about their work with the disabled community and their experience in the U.S. Please listen at the link below and online at Lifestyles Radio.
