TEDxOguiRoad was created in the belief that exposing young people to new ideas can enable them to see the boundless opportunities that exist around them in various spheres of life. TEDxOguiRoad is a volunteer-only organization, and as such organisers, volunteers and speakers are not paid. Instead, we offer a community and platform for sharing unique life changing ideas to inspire people to act and build a better community, and by extension, world. Our mission is to create an enabling environment for young people to be exposed to mind broadening ideas and opportunities and to ensure development at a personal and communal level.
