Raphael Ikuyinminu is a person of exceptional abilities, who before age 18 had become an inspiration and built a rich influence base among his peers, local and state governments.

Raphael is from a very humble background. He hails from Ajegunle, an underserved suburb of Lagos State, Nigeria and has continued to beat an uncharted part to relevance, service and stewardship.
This rare youngster was admitted into the prestigious African Leadership University Kigali, Rwanda in June 2022 to study Entrepreneurial Leadership and awarded a substantial scholarship by the institution of learning as part of their acknowledgment of his exceptional achievement, but had to defer the admission twice due to lack of funds to meet the rest of his financial obligations towards his education.
He has now exhausted all his deferment options and is on the verge of losing his admission if he does not begin his registration on or before March 31st, 2023. Thus he seeks your support to enable climb another enviable and critical ladder in his noble journey to greatness defined by service and stewardship.
Kindly support Raphael with your donations.
