A documentary film on grassroots leadership that practically shows how to move Nigeria forward, from crisis and under-achievement to success and development.
"Innovating for Africa: Uncommon Service" celebrates Dr Oluyombo Awojobi, a Nigerian innovator and physician, who for the past twenty years has transformed a rural community with no modern infrastructure into an exemplary health care center.
With the support of the people of Eruwa, a subsistence farming community in Oyo State, Awojobi built a fully functioning hospital and invented environmentally friendly medical equipment with locally available materials - providing safe and affordable healthcare to thousands of people.
