THE FUTURE REVS UP
SINCE 2006, when the Future Awards first held, the organisers, RedsTRAT, have not relented in their attempt to up the standard.
And this, they seem to have achieved in five editions, as every young, upwardly mobile Nigeria now raves about the award scheme.
On December 19, there was a grand reception for 2011 nominees in the 21 categories of the award. The nominees were also inducted into The Future Alumni Network.
Held at Terra Kulture on Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island, the reception was also used to raise awareness for the Love on The Street (LOTS) Foundation, the supported charity for The Future Awards 2011.
Tolu Sangosanya, 2010 winner of the Best Use of Advocacy, runs the LOTS Foundation.
Sangosanya, who spoke about her work with children of the Dustbin Estate in Ajegunle, said, 'LOTS aims to provide basic needs: feeding, clothing, proper education and exposure.'
