The quote, ‘The true measure of your worth includes all the benefits others have gained from your success’ is one Toke Makinwa understands very well.

The media personality who has enjoyed a good measure of success in the past few years has extended a helping hand to her followers and fans on social media more times than we can possibly recount. Now, she’s taking her philanthropy to the next level.

Taking to her Instagram this afternoon, Toke announced that she’ll be giving out the sum of N3 million to empower four people as her way of giving back to the society.

She wrote:

This project is very close to my heart thank you Jesus for the vision. Sooooo I’m sure a lot of you have wondered what #OnBecomingEmpowered is all about, go to my YouTube page and watch this weeks Vlog.

I am giving out 3 million Naira to 4 people. It is my own little way of saying thank you, it is also a call to action to get our minds thinking right. #Imusthavemyown because life can happen at anytime and I have seen things change overnight, from losing my parents at the age of 8 to going thru the most heartbreaking divorce at 30!

I keep thinking what if? What if I didn’t have a job, a dream, purpose…etc. We all must be prepared. It breaks my heart to see people on social media daily in need and I can’t reach everyone. I feel a of people feel stuck and in order to become some more, we must empower our minds.

It’s not about the money, it’s about impacting lives and this year we will start with business ideas, next it’ll be education. I truly want those who genuinely need the money to win the grant so do a one min video with your ideas and make it creative.

Have fun with it as it’s going to be a fun process so get your videos up and tag @onbecomingbytokemakinwa, the best videos will be uploaded there and we can can all choose together who makes it to the next round. More info will be released as we go along! Good luck guys

Way to go girl!
