What We Do
— Wealth Creation
Known for its investment in people, The Olorunsheyi foundation wants to create platforms for the creation of community wealth. Creating wealth for us is more than giving grants, we want to create an environment where others can create wealth for themselves and have enough to give to others. This will be done through youth development and other wealth creation platforms.
This is one important aspect for the foundation because solving this could lead to the progression of other aspects in the society. Some of the specific objectives for this is;
- To develop skills and manpower through youth development and other platforms for the growth and development of Africa
- To support small scale businesses and help them grow into international standards.
- Give the grass-roots equal opportunity to exchange views and ideas on matters pertaining to digital education, training and also maintain affiliations with local and foreign association with similar interest
Research shows that over 10 million Nigerian children are out of school, we want to build an institution where out of school children can access quality education by funding students’ tuition fees and also supply educational aiding materials. We understand the shortcomings in the education sector and want to bridge the gap between education, a good learning environment and the African child.
In our bids to achieving our mission for the foundation, we have a goal to taking 30 children out of the streets into schools every year and helping them stay in school by providing them with resources needed for quality education.
In the future, we hope the Olorunsheyi Foundation builds educational facilities that offer quality education at all levels and make education accessible to people who cannot afford it.
— Community Health
With the challenges of every developing country, comes the state of healthcare. In every statistics lies that one person who finds it difficult to pay bills and this could be saddening because it could lead to a loss of life. At the Olorunsheyi Foundation, we understand that every life matter and whatever is done towards improving the health sector counts.
We are creating a platform to enable payment of hospital bills, provision of quality healthcare, providing aids for people with disabilities and also granting individual and organizations working on research funds to combat diseases or aid health care.
We hope to make primary healthcare accessible to 100 thousand vulnerable people in the society.
