WHAT WE DO


AT AYINA THINK TANK WE BUILD LEADERS FROM INSIDE OUT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

We crawl before we walk. We learn addition before algebra. We must fix ourselves before we can fix others. If you want to make a change in the world, the place to begin is with yourself, not with your parents, your community, or your friends, or colleagues.
Think about it. It’s inside out. Not outside in. Remember the testament (Umurage) of the Anglican bishop:
e807f794-0122-4ae3-b2c3-76dc62894f11 “When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world; As I grew older and wiser I realized the world would not change. And I decided to shorten my sights somewhat and change only my country. But it too seemed immovable. As I entered my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I sought to change only my family, those closest to me, but alas they would have none of it. And now here I lie on my death bed and realize (perhaps for the first time) that if only I’d changed myself first, then by example I may have influenced my family and with their encouragement and support I may have bettered my country, and who knows I may have changed the world”.
We teach leadership the hard way considering why leadership can’t be taught and how you can learn it anyway :
f74c9ea0-85af-466f-8ff5-c0f5ade622cb most leaders the world has known including Nelson Mandela, Gandhi and even JESUS had to go through certain hard times in order to make history and be who they have been for generations to honor. Here, you don’t have to pay a physical price to be a leader but we teach through our principles, mental and emotional grit development where one takes advantage of the borrowed time for greatness.
Nelson Mandela in Walk to freedom:
“after one has been in prison it is the small things that one appreciates– the feeling of being able to take a walk whenever one wants, to cross a road, to go into the shop and to buy a newspaper , to speak or to choose to remain silent—the simple act of being able to control one’s person. Free men do not always appreciate these things and one takes joy in them only after one has been in chains.”
