Tolu Olubunmi: Teaching the Lion to Write

Tolu Olubunmi: Teaching the Lion to Write
Tolu: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! My organization’s name, Lions Write, comes from my favorite African proverb: “Until the lion learns to write, all the stories will glorify the hunter.” We believe that those directly affected by the problems we want to solve must be active participants in the process. We partner with corporations, governments, and non-profits to develop innovative solutions that are grounded in reality and promote a sense of pride within affected communities. Our work focuses on migration, education, technology, and climate change.

Briana Hart: Supporting Conscious Consumerism for Everyday Purchases
Briana: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! Each of us has our own personal set of values, and those values may shift over time. There should be a way for individuals to express their own values in terms of the things they buy. If we are conscious about our consumption, our choices can have a tangible impact on the greater good. We’re focused on more than just the environment: we are promoting diversity, fair trade, ethical product practices, clean ingredients, and companies that donate to nonprofits.
