Prince Tonye Princewill, the founder of Princewills Trust, had this to say,
“I always get excited when a new set of students embark on these boot camps. The post-trip reviews we have had from previous trips were so encouraging that we are considering expanding the scope of the challenge to include students from other states in Nigeria. The exposure is great for the kids, opening their minds to endless possibilities”.
”Experiencing Dubai was a life changer for me, and I hope it will be for them. I want to thank the whole team at Dubai Tourism, particularly the Africa desk, led by Stella Fubara and Christian Romer, and the ever-reliable CLR, led by Nneka Oduah. It’s your passion for our tomorrow, that’s made this possible.”
