Meet Our Team
It is important to know who are running an Non-Profit Organization with goals of this magnitude, so they are held accountable for failures or success.
The reason Raphael Onochie founded The Alkebulan Trust is because he was growing concern about the way Africa is being presented in the Western world. Which is the part of the world he lives. Although born and raised in the UK, Raphael holds Africa and The Caribbean close to his heart. He quickly realized that education is a vital tool in life, and if you are not taught the right set of skills you can be taken advantaged of, and can easily make irrational and informed decisions that have long term negative consequences, such as premature death that affects their family and friends or in and out of jail.
Raphael, also spoke with one family member who lives out in Nigeria and his first idea was to rebuild hospitals but in was told it is not just the hospitals that need resolving, it is also the infrastructure. Raphael is willing to do what it takes to see Africa and The Caribbean back to their former glory. To when their was multiple empires. Such as The Benin Kingdom, Ashanti Kingdom...etc.
John is an IT technical specialist. He sits on the Board of Directors, and is responsible for decision-making. Being of Nigerian heritage he feels that is only right that Africa and the Caribbean has whole should be independent, rather than to depend on foreign aid.
His knowledge and experience will proof to be vital, especially when we start rebuilding in Nigeria.
