EmpowermeEOS HAS A PLAN!
That plan is to provide young people with technology, education and MENTORSHIP so that they can attain financial freedom. We leverage on the EOS Technology and Community to empower these teens and youths by equipping them with the necessary tools they need to work both online and offline. We have taken it upon ourselves to provide them with ample education so that they are mentally equipped to succeed.
We believe that education is empowerment. Education is the primary tool that we can use to reduce the ignorance fear and poverty in this world. Laden with the duty of carrying out this education, however, are our mentors.
MEET OUR MENTORS
1. KAKA TORITSEJU
Toritseju Kaka, popularly known as Toju Kaka is the African Community Manager for BOS and also an EOS Nation Ambassador working to facilitate the adoption of EOS in Nigeria. He has an immense passion for youth empowerment and enhancing development in Africa through blockchain technology, as well as creating awareness about cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
Over the years, with the help of EOS Nation, he has set up a couple of initiatives to ensure that EOS becomes very popular in Africa. One of these initiatives is the EOS University Project which aims to organize EOS meetups and set up an EOS community in every university in Nigeria. Driven by his passion, he pioneered EmpowermeEOS, a social enterprise that aims to help low income youths and teenagers in marginalized communities to earn EOS based tokens and teach them how to leverage on blockchain and cryptocurrency for personal growth and community development with a short-term goal of reaching 1,000 young people in Africa by 2020.
At EmpowermeEOS, he works as a Mentor, teaching and helping students, in the EmpowermeEOS program, through the rudiments of what EOS and by extension, Blockchain and cryptocurrency, entails

2. EMEKA COLLINS
Emeka Collins Elekwa is a Nigerian Accountant by profession and a crypto trader with a vision of helping make the world a better place than he met it and putting a smile on people's face through voluntary and humanitarian services.
After being scammed by a Ponzi scheme in 2016, he was introduced to the Steemit blockchain by Toju Kaka and that marked the beginning of his Blockchain journey. He learnt and earned through steemit and after the launch of the EOS mainnet in 2018, alongside Toju Kaka, he created a WhatsApp group called "EOS Early Adopters" where they taught people how to use dApps on EOS blockchain and also earn while using the dApps.
However with time, they discovered that a lot of members in the group found it hard to fully participate because they couldn't avoid good smart-phones. As a result, they were using old phones with low android versions which couldn't support some apps and lacked some basic features. Equally, the high cost of internet data subscription was another impediment in the path of many.
Subsequently, Toju Kaka came up with the idea to start a social enterprise called EmpowermeEOS where they could empower these disadvantaged people, especially teens who were eager to learn about Blockchain, particularly the EOS blockchain by giving them mobile devices, internet data subscription and mentoring
He currently mentors the student of EmpowermeEOS, teaching them how to use and interact on a blockchain, especially EOS Blockchain as well as helping them convert their coins/tokens to fiat.
