U.S. Ambassador Visits Andela Lagos Office

Earlier this year, wewere honored to receive the 2016 Secretary of State’s Award for Corporate Excellence from Secretary Kerry at the annual ACE ceremony on January 5th. It was a momentous occasion for us, and a true testament to the amazing work our developers are producing for our partners on a daily basis. Last week, we welcomed United States Ambassador W. Stuart Symington to our Lagos, Nigeria office to present the plaque commemorating this accolade.
