Founder - Ben Daouda Toure'
Ben Daouda Toure' was initially inspired by a desire to simply find a way to provide information to Guinea, West Africa, his ancestral home, that would stimulate free speech, improve health, education, welfare, and human rights. He brought us all into a world that we could not find in many books published in the West...a world that only persons who are a part of the culture could relay - a world of interdependence and a concern for the well-being of each other.
In 2004, he along with Dr. Mamadou Diallo, participated as panelists at the Annual Non-Government Organizations/Department of Public Information (NGO/DPI) Workshop at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Since that time AFRAM GLOBAL Organization Inc. began preparing itself to become a viable applicant for NGO consultative status with the United Nations. Toure' , a respected political analyst and social commentator has written and spoken extensively on issues of corruption that serve to deprive persons of their basic human rights and challenged them to exercise their right to free speech and information.
He is a former member of the Board of Directors of the Black Business and Professional Association of Long Beach, California, The Guinean Society of Southern California; and Friends United. As a member of the United Nations Association he has participated in a number of NGO/DPI Annual Meetings at UN Headquarters in New York. In 2008 he received the Public Servant Award from Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc at ceremony held in Studio City, California.
His original vision for AFRAM GLOBAL Organization Inc. is now a reality. Understanding that it takes time for an idea to incubate and to become a vision. Working in concert with Co-Founder, Dr. Gloria Willingham-Toure', that vision has been expanded and moved into a comprehensive mission statement actualized in a series of projects.
