“Engagement comes with knowledge, and knowledge comes through education.”
Ejiro U. Osiobe
“Talent is Universal, but opportunities are not.”
The mission of the Trendsetters Series (TSS) is to inspire the next generation of Nigerians to use their perception, imagination, and logical thinking to set new trends and drive actions to achieve a more sustainable economic development growth plan for the nation.
TSS is a Think-Tank program that brings together college students and young graduates around Nigeria to create and implement solutions to pressing challenges in Nigeria and Africa at large.
“Dialogue is the beginning of change.” ----- Ejiro U. Osiobe
TSS is committed to developing practical goal(s) and vision(s) that can be easily translated into meaningful and measurable results; that will facilitate conversations, provide opportunities, and make a difference in the lives of people in Africa.
TSS plans to tackle all areas/sectors of the economy from agriculture, education, climate change, and healthcare, etc. and we firmly believe that
“Educating girls’, in any nation, increase the nation’s global competitiveness in all sectors of its economy, resulting in improvement and increase in the nation's productivity.”--- Ejiro U. Osiobe.
TSS Research Methods:
TSS was introduced because generally speaking; people tend to have undefined need(s). Our research methodology is the “Holistic Method” because, at Ane Osiobe International Foundation, we believe that research studies should reveal knowledge and not conceal values and results that the researcher those not agree with or those not fit their predetermined sets of ideas.
“Data is not information; Information is not knowledge, Knowledge is not understanding, Understanding is not wisdom, and Knowledge isn’t wisdom.”
The Holistic method of research is a process that is concerned with the whole finding(s) positive or negative rather than with the analysis or dissection that fits the researcher narrative. TSS promotes diagnostic before prescription and agrees that one policy doesn’t fit all.
TSS Ethical Code(s) for Research:
The guidelines outlined by Ane Osiobe International Foundation, on our website are to complement and not replace already existing statutory or regulatory requirement, codes of conduct, and ethical standards place by the government of Nigeria or laws relating to specific professions, research areas or research environments. Alternative views are welcomed but must be verified and convincing. High quality and ethical standards in research depend on the integrity, honesty, and professionalism of all individuals involved in the research process.
1. Copying all or parts of other scholars’ work without proper citation will be viewed as ethically wrong.
2. Copying from ones previous work without citing oneself will be viewed as ethically wrong.
3. Manipulation, correcting data to fit one's opinions, deleting of [outliers] variables, controlling variables until one gets their desired outcomes, and stoping analysis when one has desired result(s) will be ethically wrong.
4. Human subjects research must get research approval from the agencies [government or(and) private] that handle the protection and wellbeing of your defined subject or area of studies.
Proper ethical conduct is an essential part of TSS. Our research codes are not limited to the statements above we’d advise going through some research ethics textbooks, research guides, and seminars before competing or sending your research.
TSS Solution Strategy:
At TSS “we believe that we can’t solve the problem(s) in Africa with the same tools we used to create these problems.” --- Ejiro U. Osiobe.
Our solution policies are more of a devolution and participation development strategy which will translate into a sustainable problem-solving environment in the long run.
