“We didn’t win, BUT it didn’t matter. We were so proud to be nominated in [the] Humanitarian Awards Global , and our great work was recognized with a certificate, which meant the world to us,” Abjel Communications shared on their page.
“I’m honoured to have been nominated. To all the other nominees and winners, I say well done! Keep up the good work,” Adisa also shared.
Over the past 18 years, she has provided strategic communication to various organisations in aviation, energy, fisheries, charity and financial technology throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, North and Latin America. She is currently the director at Abjel Communications, Africa’s first social enterprise branding, content and media relations consulting agency.
She started Abjel Communications in 2016 to provide for the need of skilled communication agencies available to the ever-increasing pool of entrepreneurs on the African continent. A sizeable portion of Abjel’s income is dedicated to charitable causes, most notably the Igrieve foundation, a non-governmental body dedicated to supporting bereaved children. She is a board member for Chance for Childhood and DWIB Leukemia Trust.
We send our warmest congratulations to Adisa and her entire team on this great accomplishment.
