Success Starts with Helping Others

Don’t see challenges as impossibilities. See them as opportunities and as lessons to learn.”

When the late Ernest Che Ngang, 2019 Fellowship Alumnus from Cameroon, founded Green Skills Africa, an organization aimed at training young leaders to be financially independent, he hoped to create a more sustainable future for all young adults across his country and help them both prepare for the future and address long-standing social and economic issues. After the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ernest also began training young people to make hand sanitizer.
