Remembering Olamide Alli
Yesterday made it exactly one year since we lost a visionary young woman, a sister, mother, and Tribe member, Olamide Alli, to the cruel hands of death from a loved one.
We are so happy for the part w were able to play in setting up a trust fund for Olamide’s children, but we are more thankful for all the mind people who contributed to that fund that has been able to take care of the children even if it can’t get them their mother back.
Olamide was a bright light with so much potential that was cut short prematurely. But we who are still able will continue to do the good work that needs to be done to empower women and in essence, help their children get a better life.
Rest in Peace, dear Olamide.
