APRNEWS - Social entrepreneur, political strategist, youth advocate, and author, Thione Niang, was born in a modest family of 28 children in Senegal.
The visionary leader immigrated to the USA in 2000 with only 20 dollars, and worked
his way through the hardships while getting involved in his new community. His efforts led him to participating as a community organizer in the historic 2008 Presidential elections supporting Democratic candidate Barack Obama, and becoming
National Co-Chair of Gen44 for the 2012 re-election Campaign. Thione Niang now leads three structurally different, but substantially, similar, international organizations ; GIVE1PROJECT, TNG (ThioneNiang Group), and Akon Lighting Africa and Solektra Interational.
