    DARIUS BARRYIn 2013, Darius was unemployed. Today, he runs his regions top elementary school. What began as a tutoring center in his parents living room has evolved to a full-fledged school with 600 students enrolled, over 400 on the waitlist, and 12 employees.

    Before I thought that I had failed at life, but after receiving the training and funding from Dare to Innovate, I had no choice but to accomplish something.

    FATOUMATA DIALLOThe women in Fatoumatas neighborhood sell at the local market, right on the edge of the major highway. Fatoumata noticed it was difficult for women to keep an eye on their children, who are at risk of being hit by a passing car, getting sick from playing in piles of trash, or falling into the gutters that line the road.

    Fatoumata launched a daycare center promoting creativity and providing security for children. She now cares for and educates 100 children and employs three women.

  • WE BELIEVE IN A WEST AFRICA WHERE ENTREPRENEURS HAVE ACCESS TO RESOURCES, WHERE INNOVATION IS THE EXPECTATION, AND WHERE YOUTH ACTIVELY LEAD THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR COUNTRY.
