Good evening ALG, I am pleased with the event on Saturday, and how well the event was organized. I just wanted to mention this to ALG group.
I would like to take a moment and congratulate ALG for its amazing success on Afrik-Impact 2016. You made me proud of being an African because you have proven that Africans can take initiative and manage and develop their lives. By your core principle which is if I’m not mistaken, helping people help themselves, you are touching the fundamental issue facing us…
On behalf of all of us at the agency, I would like to deeply thank you for Saturday night. Ryan and I felt overwhelmed by the welcome that we received from your staff and the other attendee’s. It was a great event and something neither of us will forget…
Thank you for inviting me to the Afrik Impact 2016, it was an incredible and informative event. I have been looking for ways to get more involved with the African community and I am glad I was able to meet such great people…
I just wanted to tell you that you guys are doing such a wonderful job to prepare our fellow African immigrants to get empowered, connected to each other, and above all to know and appreciate the real environment they are in. I enjoyed tonight’s event and found it more inspirational and meaningful. Keep up the good work…
