Soulful Celebration: Seeing Challenges as Opportunities

Soulful Celebration: Seeing Challenges as Opportunities

About This Campaign

I know we all have a lengthy list of could have, should have, would have during this uncertain, unpredictable year. My list includes my annual trip to visit my Nigerian family with Access to Success. We were forced to cancel our July vision trip and put a hold on several of the Entrepreneur Empowerment programs we typically administer. It feels sad, disappointing... and like something is missing from my life.

BUT, there has been something powerful about 2020, and watching how different people react in crisis and challenge. Our team on ground is very adept at turning challenges into opportunities. It is the very reason A2S exists and is successful. Because no one sees a mountain too high to climb. They see an opportunity to shift and get creative with how they work, serve, and love. We are still educating. We are still empowering. We are still singing (wait until you see the music videos they produced - coming soon!). We are still growing businesses and learning how to adapt as entrepreneurs. It makes me proud.

In honor of A2S's 10-year anniversary, I am pledging to match all gifts made to this page up to $2,500! Thank you for supporting this necessary work.

Access to Success

Campaign to Support Access to Success

Access to Success provides sustainable programs that generate positive change for Nigerian children and their communities. Children in Nigeria have dreams. But they rarely have hope. A2S provides education, athletic and empowerment programs, and basic human needs - we give access to necessary tools that empower children and give them hope for a future outside of poverty. With your support, we are impacting children, families and communities.

    We are missing this year's celebration of a wonderful organization that we love to support. It has been a challenging year, full of uncertainty, doubt and frustration. Yet, there is hope, and one place it can be found without fail, is in organizations like Access2Success that bring so much light to the world. Cheers to a decade of transforming lives locally, nationally, and globally!
