To create a society where children are treated with dignity and respect and given equal opportunities for well rounded growth and development.
To recreate worthy and beautiful beginnings by providing a safe and conducive environment for the mental, physical and emotional development of children rescued from the street.
Restoring Lost Childhoods
Based in Ibadan, our charity was born on the fifth of January 2017 with a Facebook post describing the proposed project. A messenger group was created shortly after with the following people to start working on the actualisation: Detoun Omooba, Bababee Omoghetto, Olubukola Atanda Nike, Aderonke Ige, Kehinde Adeola Onaopemipo, Lola Aigoro, Peju Bakrin, Stephen Jinadu, Biodun Bamgboye and a few others.
From this initial work, the centre was born. An apartment was found and furnished, and the necessary repair work was done. We then met with government officials, employed our first staff members, Bukola and Bode; and finally started to meet street children.
Eventually on the 7th of March 2017 our children’s charity welcomed seven boys, who were taken care of by the resident staff, Bode.
Since then, the center has continued to receive growing financial, material and other forms of support from mainly the Facebook community and other friends, family members and well wishers.
Our vision is to create a society where children are treated with dignity and respect and given equal opportunities for well rounded growth and development.
• Every child deserves a childhood
• Every child deserves equal access to life transforming opportunities
• Mutual Respect
• Every child deserves to live a life of dignity
