My Work

In 2016, Neil met with community activists and officially formed Unity For Equality to help provide the tools and resources that communities needed to thrive and succeed.

My Motivation

I came up with the idea of Unity For Equality based off of seeing the issues that existed in the communities when I would travel. Whether these issues were from Agriculture, Health, Housing, Education, Energy, Financial Inclusion, Workforce Development to Water & Sanitation. Individuals in communities were tired of the false promises from their government and other organizations where they then started living in silence. I was tired of seeing people suffer in silence and go through hardships losing faith completely.
People would approach me to help them and then I realized that I needed to put something together in order to help more people to make an impact around the world that there were more issues to advocate for than what was in front of me.
