Abiola had sessions with senior executives of over 50 US-based organisations as well as representatives of organizations from Europe, Middle East and Asia.

“Once again, I am grateful to the US government for this opportunity. The opportunity confers a responsibility on me, more than ever before, to implement all our projects and programmes on a global scale as we inspire young people and women around the world to become champions of change in their families, organisations and communities.”
