#‎AfricasBiggestBookProject‬ Narrator Spotlight: Ogo Maduewesi



Ogo Maduewesi is a Social entrepreneur, blogger and aspiring writer. She is the founder and pioneer of Vitiligo Support and Awareness Foundation (VITSAF), the first Vitiligo patient-driven organisation in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Diagnosed with Vitligo, a condition in which the pigment is lost from areas of the skin, causing whitish patches, often with no clear cause, Ogo has gone through the various stages of the condition, including the intangible effects it brings on the patient, especially the loss of self-confidence. Ogo overcame her condition through practicing her very own ‘Positive Self-image’ mindset, which she has incorporated into her initiative under her social enterprise. She lives to serve like-minded people like her who are going through the same situation, and educate them on how to overcome these struggles.

Ogo has also founded Ogo Maduewesi Naturals (a Social enterprise) – an initiative focused on promoting Natural health, Natural Skincare through totally natural products (inspiring Chemical free living). Ogo gets to practice her digital media skills here too - creating and updating her own blog, e-commerce website, and educating people around the world with knowledge about Natural Living.
