MEET THE AMAZING 18 YEAR OLD CHAMPIONING CHILDREN'S CAUSES


Last year, we met an amazing young girl who is championing the causes of African children through charitable and humanitarian acts. She has won two awards for her work and is - daily - improving the lives of children in Nigeria. Who is she? WADI BEN-HIRKI! 

Wadi Ben-Hirki is the founder of the Wadi Ben-Hirki Foundation, a charity organization which is a little over a year old but has done so much already! We have a three part interview and in this first part, we find out why Wadi decided to start her foundation.

Wadi Ben-Hirki was also recently nominated for the Africa Peace Builder Award 2016

In a world where many teenagers are trying to find their way in the world, an inspiring 18 year old is already leaving her legacy in the sands of time! I hope this has been as inspiring as it was to us.
