Mindful of Youths Initiative (MOYI) was duly represented by her COO, Pastor Tunde Onakoya at the 2019 International Youth Day event organized by the SMILE Foundation and the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC), Lagos. With the theme "Transforming Education", the event had a robust selection of panelists who spoke on how participants could use several tools available to them in transforming the Nigerian educational sector.
The event also saw the inclusion of people with disabilities both as panelists and as participants in the event. Their success stories despite their challenges were a source of inspiration to many.
As is their tradition since 2013, the SMILE foundation and the UNIC have organised the International Youth Day event to celebrate the Nigerian youth and spur them to greatness. This year's event, however, was exclusive to young persons with NGOs or those who have other charitable endeavours.
