How do you feel about the BEFORE AND AFTER category?

Often I talk about Final Jeopardy! in this space. However, I’d like to talk about something different today. Afam was the alternate contestant on the shows from April 4-8, and Jeff Crosby (a champion that week and past #JeopardyLivePanel guest) really wanted to highlight the work that Afam does. Thus, I’m going to do the same here today.

The charitable foundation that Afam leads is GEANCO.

The GEANCO Foundation saves and transforms the lives of the poor and vulnerable in Africa.

We lead special surgical missions and run maternal and infant health programs in Nigeria. We are working with Stanford Hospital and many others to develop a world-class hospital in the country.

We also donate critical supplies to schools in Nigeria, and we provide life-changing scholarships to young female victims of terrorism.
