Esther Yiyi Lamnyam

Founder and Director

Esther is the founder of Kola Nut Tree Services, Inc.

Esther has been sending disadvantaged village children to school and also supports widows for more than 30 years. She traveled to Cameroon periodically to coach and mentor young adults so they can develop tools for their success, family, country and hence the world. With time and observation, she realised that to make lasting change, sponsoring and educating the children has to start at a young age and followed through the years and not intermittent coaching, and donations which might cause the kids to drop out of school when the donations don’t come forth.

Also, in addition to standardized subjects, other modalities and practical projects have to be incorporated at a very young age to build the children up as creators with a community and outreach based focus to create impactful change in their lives, future and communities. With that outlook, Esther decided to embark on building a school from nursery to high school where children can learn, create and play. She is looking for donors and sponsors to share more of this vision with. Please consider helping in any way you can.

Some of Esther’s experiences and certifications include : Life success strategies coach, natural approach to health coach, mentor, speaker, published author; Certified Professional Coach, Certified Health Coach, A Commissioned Stephen Minister and Facilitator at Reid Temple AME Church, Maryland.

Esther has a M.S. degree in Management of Information Systems from the University of Akron, Akron Ohio, a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Spelman College, Atlanta, Georgia.and many Information Technology certifications. She has great customer service experiences as she also worked in information technology helpdesk for years and the customer service industry including such corporations as the Ritz-Carlton Hotels, and Macy’s stores. She has worked as an information technician in areas such as data entry, programmer, network administrator, database administrator, email and cloud administrator since 1990 so has an eagle’s eye view and approach to problem solving, paying it forward, mentoring and leadership. Esther has worked with international organizations and with the U. S. government in various capacities providing information technology services.

Through being an author, speaker, life success strategies coach, & information technology consultant, Esther helps people to see the interconnectedness of their lives, and how to create their desired success, reclaim their lives, create their dreams, make an impact and have fun doing so. In the difficulties of her own life’s journey, she learned strategies that would impact not just her life but the lives of others also.

Using the medium of books, coaching & speaking, she shares those strategies. Lessons taught through stories are easier to relate to, learn and remember Esther observed.
