The august guests were in the country to observe for themselves the activities of a local NGO, Tech Needs Girls, who have been working with the Achievers Book Club.
The latter has lifted many a young girl from the bosom of poverty to a new pedestal of hope.
Achievers Book Club is the concept of Amadu Zulkarnain Mohammed, who is also a nominee of the MTN Heroes of Change 2014.
If there is ever a heart-warming moment for those behind both NGOs-Tech Needs Girls and Achievers Book Club, it was when they hosted the Swedish royalty in the bowels of Maamobi where girl-child is a challenge which is being fought tooth and nail by the aforementioned NGOs .
In a chat with DAILY GUIDE, Mr Zulkarnain said for him changing the lives of otherwise hopeless girls and removing them from the claws of poverty was a source of great excitement.
‘The recognition would inspire me and my colleagues to work even harder to support the down-trodden in society to become useful citizens in the country,’ he said.
