WSYA Success story
Building a smiling nation - How to create happiness?

What about a new job? Or treatment when you are sick? What about a toilet? Can a toilet put a smile on a person’s face? Sounds all like basic stuff. Basic and essential.

The good news is that there are people who dedicated their lives on improving that of others.

Creating SMILES- building the Nation focuses its operation in the rural parts of Nepal where more than 80% of the total population resides.

WSYA Success story
Branding is about character: Discovering a one stop platform for young Nigeria
Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country with an estimated population of about 168.8 million.

Whether it is the lack of social amenities, corrupt public servants or the erratic inflations, any individual, group or corporate entity can air their views on the site, Opinion Nigeria. The platform is a reminder to the government of its responsibilities and also a call for attention to persecute corrupted civil officers.
