Founder & Executive Director
Live Abundantly!® in a registered not-for-profit organisation (CAC/IT/No.95723) committed to investing in communities and promoting positive social change™ based on integrity and a bold purpose through identifying creative solutions focused on action-enabled collaborations with a keen vision of accountability to the community.
The thrust of our endeavours is to disclose and improve issues of inequity and inequality in the society as well as to address the experiences of violence and exploitation of the most vulnerable groups of the society. We strongly believe that a diverse, equitable and inclusive society is achievable when all citizens are treated respectfully regardless of their socio-economic standing or differences and they can contribute to the progress and welfare of the society.
Launched in 2017, Live Abundantly!® (www.livesabundantly.com) has four key objectives. Firstly, to create an avenue for social consciousness and discourse as we strive to uphold the civil liberties of women and children regardless of their socio-economic standing. Secondly, to make education accessible for children who are marginalised by poverty and physiological differences. Thirdly, to empower youth and women seeking economic and social representation in the society. Empowerment through the understanding of human rights and job preparedness enables full and active participation in the economic sphere which leads to economic viability and participation in the socio-economic and political spheres of society. Fourthly, to awaken the urgency of protecting the planet through this solutions-driven and educational platform which incorporates studies and insights into how we address the pressing problems and their implications for the global society, particularly the vulnerable which are a focal point of our mission.
Live Abundantly!® embraces the power of partnerships and our five core focal programs are in alignment with our ethos which targets Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states and involves collaborations with all stakeholders including public and private entities, community stakeholders, non-governmental organisations, community leaders and individuals.
Our Children’s Awareness Initiative™ program is the hallmark of the strong commitment to impact young lives through social education and advocacy which provides a robust non-academic program for secondary school students.
The Live Abundantly!® Scholarship Program is a symbol of our pledge to supporting children’s education, especially those whose attendance has been disrupted due to poverty or physiological differences, as a recognition of their inherent potential to contribute to society as well as to acknowledge their rights to education and all opportunities available to all young citizens.
The Out of the Box Empowerment highlights the importance of youth education particularly for women in STEM. In 2021, we established the Equity and Equality Scholarship to highlight the importance of youth education particularly for women in STEM but more importantly create access for employability, networking, mentorship and sponsorship in a global workforce. The scholarship is sponsored by The Adekoya Family Trust in honour of their matriarch, Mrs. Olayinka Omolabake Adekoya, the first and only female Surveyor-General of Nigeria, therefore currently focused on female surveying students. We aim to expand the scholarship to more female STEM students and continue to offer leadership and professional preparedness through the development of curiosity and innovation.
EarthO2 focuses on the complexity of Climate Change and its adverse effects on lives and livelihoods particularly for women and children. EarthO2 aims to awaken the urgency of protecting the planet through educational campaigns and awareness through engaging discourse and collaboration amongst all sectors and citizens, to develop innovative methods in order for the planet to heal and Thrive in a Sustainable Manner™.
Thinking Reimagined® podcast infuses life into social and workplace topics omitted or deemed unsuitable for general discourse through honest and transformational inter-generational conversations with the aim of changing the mindset for a better global society™.
Our current Live Abundantly!® projects promote diversity and inclusion whilst emphasising equity and equality amongst young persons, particularly girls by developing leaders and innovators for the Twenty-First Century. Our pledge to the United Nations Decade of Action is clear, we continue to work with stakeholders to address and initiate solutions of poignant issues such as poverty, education, health, climate change, peace and security particularly at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted any semblance of normalcy and the disparities amongst genders has been played bare and the level of violence against women and girls is astounding. It marks the intersection of our ethos and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We endorse a change in mindset through education, dialogue, advocacy, training, empowerment and legislation and the elevation of victims’ voices without fear of repercussion or social stigma. We aim to create a society where all citizens, regardless of social standing and physiology, can access education, thereby improving their ability to contribute to the progress and welfare of society.
Live Abundantly!® addresses the high prevalence of violence against vulnerable groups including women, children and the physiologically challenged. We also pay particular attention to the issues of gender violence most notably honour crimes, human trafficking and irregular migration, Child Marriage, Child Labour and the welfare of Children. We intentionally focus on the education of women because it expands their awareness of their role in the future of their children and the development of the nation.
We believe through education, gender parity, equity, health and security measures we can open the gateway to productive and fulfilling participation in the Twenty-First Century whilst increasing the impact of women in roles of leadership and decision-making. The empowerment of women and girls is critical to the advancement of society as well as the survival of humanity and the de-escalation of violence and discrimination. It is our collective Human Right to access these intrinsic opportunities necessary to access education, maintain physical and mental well-being, access employment or economic resources and participate in our community in order to Thrive.
Live Abundantly!® believes each human life is invaluable and the right to live with dignity to the fullest potential, happily, prosperously and respectfully should not be breached by an individual or group based on their bias and/or resentment. All citizens, particularly women and girls, must feel secure in the society as prescribed by the law. We must collectively strive for an equitable and inclusive global society which honours the rights of all citizens and applies appropriate legal redress to all forms of violence, corruption, inhumane treatment and unjust brutality without room for impunity. Furthermore, we must accept the differences and diversity of peoples as fundamental to global citizenship.
