Okay...let's stop right here(takes in deep breath and exhales). For more info on Tabot, ask his partners (What I mean is, google him!) Yeah, he's all that (wink wink).
Tabot is a young man who intends to raise a new generation of great thinkers and problem solvers in Africa. Growing up, he engaged himself in many activities and programs that were dedicated to giving back to society. But he always felt like he wasn't doing enough.
In his own words
"I needed an entity bigger than my little self through which I could give back to my continent Africa in a more sustainable way. The ETSD Foundation therefore became that entity through which I will be able to extend myself and the work I was doing to places where I wouldn’t be able to go to as one individual limited in time and space. Through it many more people will be able to get involved in the causes we champion bringing about a more sustainable organization that will live well beyond its Founder."
