One of our fellows, Akingbade Mary, has won an award as “The most promising Coach of the year” at the 2019 Iconic Brand Awards which held over the weekend. This is in recognition of her work in safety advocacy.

Upon completion of her GLP fellowship in 2018, Mary deployed
the knowledge, skills and experience gained during the mentorship to start a safety company, AMT Safety. Through it, she has been forming partnerships, educating Nigerians on good safety practices and challenging the status quo. For instance, she was a guest on City FM Lagos to discuss “Back to school child safety” in September 2019 just in time to educate parents and kids on safety issues before resumption of school for a new session.

Congratulations to Mary, the CEO of AMT Safety! Follow us on Twitter @glp_ng and like our Facebook page at https://web.facebook.com/glprogram/
