I have never been overseas, so I am very happy to be going to such a place that will impact young people and encourage them to read and write and also to be safe and secure. Exactly the goals of my foundation, the Stacey Fru Foundation. I look forward to many more trips that will have impacts like this one. I thank the president of Egypt and his team for choosing me."


"About the award, I feel so good. So good that a person so big like the President of Egypt recognised my work among just 5 Africans and 9 Arabians. It is time for the African child. I dedicate this Award to every child from Cape to Cairo and from Damascus to Amman. Actually, it is for all children of the World. It is time for children."
