RESCUE FOR THE ABANDONED

A young lady of about 23 years became a petty trader as a result of poverty because there was no one to pay for her education. In the course looking for means of livelihood, a transformer exploded near the place she was selling her things and she suffered severe burn.

 During the treatment which is very expensive families, friends abandoned her. Presently she could not attend follow-up treatment in the hospital due to lack of money to buy prescribed drugs, she could not attend the physiotherapy clinic and she could not even feed herself presently

This young woman requires short and long term treatment for her burn and she is in dire need of means of livelihood

She has been abandoned by everyone around her but we cannot abandon her when she was brought to the center. I opened Women Inspiration development Center because of people like her. We are doing all we can though we have very limited resources because we have little donations coming on our way.

Titi (not her real name) has been suffering sexual abuse from her step father since she was 8 years old, recently because she opened up and share her experience which has affecting her education and psychological she was thrown to the street by her mother for exposing her husband. Titi does not have anywhere to go, she does not know her own father nor his relatives. Though we don’t have shelter for people like Titi and we only have access to so little resources but we have been helping her to get a place to stay, helping her with one on one counselling to assist her in build her self-esteem and believe in herself. She is already preparing to enter university and she still need assistance in passing some of exams and resources to cater for her shelter and education.

Lade (not her real name) is an orphan that got admission to the university but she was dropping out because she has no one to cater for her education. Women Inspiration Development Center wade in to assist in the little way we can, she is able to continue in her studies, she is in part two and still have 3 years to spend in the university.  She still need funds for her shelter, upkeep and school fees as time goes on.

Labake (not her real name) is also an orphan that passed out very well in her secondary school examination but could not continue her studies due to lack of fund. Everyone has abandoned her, she has to be engaging in child labour to feed herself when we found her. Women Inspiration development center wade into her situation, got JAMB form for her to enter university and we are helping her in a very little way we can. Labake need more money for her feeding, shelter and her education to be able to fulfil her vision in life.

Our stories of these kind of people could go on and on. Presently we have 11 girls in these category of dire needs in the center that we are struggling with getting them the resources they need to survive and become a useful person in their community.

Support us in any little way you can, share us with your network and you can be mentors for these girls. You can donate on our fundraising page in Global Giving through this link.

  • Hello, Busayo,

    Thank you for being a safe place for abused and abandoned women. I wonder if your organization has considered writing proposals for possible funding/grants for long-term support for these women. 

    I hope you get access to financial resources.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Hello Busayo, 

    To be there for these girls is God's gift to them ... sending them you means that life didn't abandon them. I pray that you get all the suport you need to provide for those that will come to your center and to those that are already in your care. 

    Good luck to you and will share your funding story to my fb as well. 

    God bless you.

    Dear Adeola,

    Thank you for encouragement. My center is in Ile-Ife, Osun State and it will be our pleasure to have you with us. I am not discouraged, it is just that it is painful when you see people in need and you could not do little or nothing about it. I really appreciate your words of encouragement

    Love

    Obisakin Busayo I can empathize with these girls struggle to get an education.  I know how hard it was for me to pay my way through the University (and that is in the United States) and still manage to live. I was incredibly fortunate to have a good paying job and a supportive employer and now as I look to trying to return to a graduate program as a single mother and the cost of obtaining that degree I cannot even begin to imagine the hopelessness these young women must feel.  My hope for you, your organization and the women you serve is through this platform you can find other's who can assist you either financially or who can provide you connections or assistance in obtaining the funding that you need to continue to help these women.

    Dear Colleen

    Thank you so much for your kind heart and the willingness to help our work. I will be so glad apart from giving money if you can mentor some of these young ladies. It will encouraged them so much to know that someone out there cares for them. We have many of them, I just mentioned few in this article.  This is the global giving link again.

    Thank you once again for your interest in making life better for our disenfranchised women and girls.

    warmest Regards
