My Growth Journey -The Books That Made Me

A few undesirable realities are still with us and will continue to be a part of our lives in 2022. The Covid-19 pandemic is one glaring reality that has innevitably come with us to 2022.

Welcome to my first blog as managing director of ACPC. The Birth of ACPC At the end of April, I bid farewell to my colleagues after 13.5 years at Zein Childcare. I also closed my sole proprietorship company Mollynn Cares that have been running since 2011. I made these two bold steps because I want to focus on serving the African community in The Netherlands and the rest of the diaspora. This led to the birth of the Africa Cultural Promotion Center BV (ACPC) which was incorporated in May in The Hague.
