Working Today. Building Tomorrow
Satus Dignus CRI was created in January 2017 in order to help street children in Nigeria. We believe that offering a positive environment is key to helping them to grow and become part of Nigerian society. Our non-profit organisation is committed to giving each child a chance to enjoy their early years, get a proper education and benefit from life changing opportunities.
I am grateful that I am here in the SDCRI center and no more on the streets facing different kinds of abuse and molestation.

From The Children
Being here in the SDCRI center has really changed my life. Before I couldn’t read or write, and I always wondered if I also would ever be able to read, but now, I can pick and book on my own and read. I used to think I would never be something in the future, but now I know that I can be someone important in the future.
I am grateful that I am here in the SDCRI center and not more on the streets facing different kinds of abuse and molestation. Since I got here, the care I am being given is as like that of a father and a mother. My life is totally different.
I have improved in speaking English language. When I just came to the center, I remember that I spoke very bad English. I always used to dream of being a lawyer or a governor, but while I was on the streets, I used to think there was no way that this would be possible. Since I got to the SDCRI, I now know that I can become anything I wish to be and I can see that my dreams are being worked out.
One of the ways that my life has changed is that I can do things that I never believed was possible when I was on the streets. I can now read and write English comfortably and my academics generally has continued to improve. I have also been given the priviledge to play Chess and represent Oyo State multiple times on the national youth chess team. I never would have imagined meeting a governor face to face before, but SDCRI has given me the exposure to meet some very important people and even shake hands with the Kwara State governor once. I know that I am confident to mix and comfortably interact with children from rich families. Satus Dignus has really worked for me.
SDCRI rescued me from the streets when I was pregnant and had no help. I stayed in the center throughout my pregnancy and had my baby while at the center receiving all necessary health care and support. I watch my child grow up and now go to school, while I am being equipped with different skills that can help me make a living. I have also been able to reconnect with some of my family members. I am very grateful for all that has been done for me.
I never knew I could get to where I am. I was brought to Ibadan for a very different situation until I was brought to this organisation. I didn’t know that I would also be priviledged to attend a private school and be able to speak, read, write and understand English properly I never knew what chess was, but my being here exposed me to chess and I fell in love with it. I have since won many awards. There are so many other things I could keep on speaking about that I am thankful for.
