On October 15th, Akazi Kanoze Ambassadors met as a committee for the first time. 14 Alumni Ambassadors representing 139 alumni gathered at EDC to showcase their chapter projects and provide guidance for the future of the alumni network. Most alumni chapters have organized into savings groups, with many groups raising enough capital to start investing in businesses in just a few months! Alumni chapters are investing in member's businesses, as well as starting new ventures.
Several groups have been actively recruiting new members, even meeting with district officers to sensitize the community to the Akazi Kanoze alumni program. EDC Akazi Kanoze and Akazi Kanoze Access are working together to assist graduates with the ability to meet others in their trade, gain access to capital, and invest in business in new and innovative ways! We are so proud of the great strides that our alumni chapters have made and look forward to all of the fantastic things they will do in the future.
