You live. You learn. You give back.


No one knows this better than people ages 50

and older, who have spent decades

accumulating a wealth of knowledge that only

life experience can bring. Armed with this

wisdom, they are a powerhouse of innovation

tackling some of the greatest societal

challenges of our time and inspiring others to

do the same.


The AARP® Purpose Prize® award supports

AARP's mission by honoring extraordinary

people ages 50 and older who tap into the

power of life experience to build a better

future for us all.


“AARP is honored to celebrate these

extraordinary older adults, who have

dedicated their lives to serving others in

creative and innovative ways,” said AARP CEO

Jo Ann Jenkins. “During these trying times in

our country and globally, we are inspired to

see people use their life experiences to build a

better future for us all.”

Liz Fanning

Founder and Executive

Director, CorpsAfrica

“I always say I never knew what I wanted to do but I spent my career preparing for it.

Also, don’t be afraid to fail. Just roll up your sleeves and get to work.”

The Peace Corps sends Americans to African countries, but CorpsAfrica uses talent that is

homegrown. We recruit, train and dispatch college-educated young Africans to remote villages in

their own countries, where they facilitate solutions to problems identified by local people. So far,

more than 300 volunteers have served in four countries — Morocco, Senegal, Malawi and Rwanda

— impacting an estimated 150,000 rural Africans. Our approach not only benefits the villagers, it

transforms the lives and life goals of our volunteers.

The problem I’m trying to solve

Some countries in Africa are among the poorest in the world. In several where we work, nearly

half the population lives below the poverty line. Meanwhile, Africa is rich in underutilized talent,

with hundreds of universities graduating educated youth who can’t find enough jobs to employ

them. By tapping their idealism and energy, CorpsAfrica empowers these young adults to be part

of the solution. Our volunteers spend nearly a year in a village, learning what the locals view as

their biggest needs and connecting them to organizations with the resources to help. Our wideranging

projects include wells, irrigation (including a recent, innovative solar-powered system),

toilets, self-sustaining kitchen gardens (750 and counting), and even an NBA-sponsored

basketball court to give kids in a refugee camp a productive activity. When COVID-19 broke out,

our volunteers were perfectly positioned to educate residents on the best ways to protect

themselves.

Advice to others who want to make a difference

I always say I never knew what I wanted to do but I spent my career preparing for it. My 25 years

of fundraising experiences are what allowed me to start this organization in 2011 and hit the

ground running. When people tell me they want to do something similar, I advise them to make

sure their ego is in check, let the project find them, and be flexible. Even in Africa, where our

volunteers from the cities think they know poverty, they discover pretty quickly how humbling it

is to live in a village without running water or electricity. That humility is what enables them to be

of greatest service. Also, don’t be afraid to fail. Just roll up your sleeves and get to work.

THE LIVING FUEL

WELLNESS CONSULTING

From founders and

holistic health consultants

Manoli Lagos and Nicole Aivazoglou

The mission of our business aligns directly with goal

#3 of the UN, providing good health and well-being.

In the current state of the world, we now see that

investing in our health is of the utmost importance.

After years of struggling with our own chronic health

issues, ranging from debilitating Lyme disease to

chronic brain fog and fatigue, we knew we needed a

change. Throughout the process of healing ourselves,

we saw patterns and created a proprietary system to

help others. This led to the birth of our company,

through which we now have been able to help over

9,300 people and businesses transform their health.
