Director Statement

When the United States left Afghanistan in 2021, I had an epiphany! If Civil Society Organizations did not make an impact on Nigerian democracy, governance, and humanitarian interventions, we would have sunk into a black hole of a failed state status. This UNTOLD IMPACT had to be told and I am humbled to take on this task.
