She Speaks: Prof Sade Ogunsola

It’s a New Year, New Hopes and aspirations, New Grace. Happy 2010 everyone.

I would like to introduce a monthly interview series to our blog. The interview series will be about special people in the non-profit world we move in. They touch us with their passion, their generosity and their strength.

Our first blog for the year is an interview with K’arale’s founder, the extra-and not ordinary Folasade Ogunsola!!
Folasade Ogunsola is a Professor of medical microbiology at the College of Medicine, University of Lagos. Her education background includes an MB CHB and a Masters degree from the University of Lagos and a PHD from University of Wales. She is happily married to Segun Ogunsola and has 3 lovely children.

Tell me how you first got involved with K’arale?
It was through my work

Re: The mess called Kuramo

This post is written in response to Gbenga Olatunji on his article on the Sunday Guardian[03/01/2010] about Kuramo. Kuramo the site of our first PortaKlinic is a community dear to K’arale. I do welcome responses on what can be done to improve life for its inhabitants. We also welcome the input of other NGOs interested in training the many jobless youth there to become economically empowered.
Dear Mr Olatunji,
I do agree with you; Kuramo, the most central and easily accessible beach in Lagos is a mess in its present state but before we condemn and destroy, we need to understand.
