As we start thinking about the New Year, it is just appropriate to celebrate some personalities that ensured our global visibility despite the COVID-19 crisis of 2020. Without these dedicated volunteers nothing would be known of Hope Builders. As without light, no flowers; they inspired our online movement, connections and impact. Meet Emmanuel Oche Isaac.

Emmanuel Oche Isaac is indigene of Benue state by origin, but born and brought up in Kaduna state, Nigeria. He is a passionate and energetic young man who is committed to providing solutions and adding value to humanity and society through images.

Emmanuel’s drive for photography started in 2010 while still in secondary school. As a student in Government Technical College Malali, Kaduna, he started learning photography on his own. He formed the habit of learning not only to snap, but to study everything to do with the camera. His passion for media and communication through images led him to Star Point Media College in Kaduna where he successfully graduated in 2013. He is the Managing Director of St. Emmanuel Photos. He has trained and certified scores of young people as professional photographers within the last 5 years.

The young passionate and zealous Emmanuel first visited Hope Builders as a guest photographer to cover a graduation ceremony in 2015. Thereafter, he returned and signed up as a volunteer. Immediately, he was appointed the official photographer of the organization. As a dedicated volunteer, he has served in different committees including: entrepreneurship and skills development, Creative Arts development and welfare committees. He received an award of honor in 2019 as the most active volunteer in Hope Builders International Consult Ltd.
