Background
Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country and largest economy, has been widely acknowledged as a country with enormous potential for development. The country has however over the years fallen short of these potentials, failing at every major human development index, most recently becoming home to the highest number of people living in extreme poverty in the world.
The country is also experiencing a series of security challenges which have left a significant number of her citizens displaced from their homes and living in camps, while in education is also extremely challenged with 13million children out of school, while youth unemployment and underemployment is also at an all-time high.Within this mix of challenges, there is a need for interventions to support the government’s efforts to rein them in and provide better life for the citizens. While the government puts in an effort to solve the problems confronting society, within its limited resources, there is a need to pool resources from alternative sources to carry Nigerians through emergency situations in order to get them back on their feet and make them productive citizens that contribute meaningfully to the development of the country.
Touch Me Foundation, is created as a vehicle to provide such interventions to the most vulnerable in Nigeria through charitable donations and mobilization of people and resources, to provide relief in emergency situations and empower them to become productive citizens of society. Touch Me Foundation connects people with opportunity, to facilitate the development of their potentials by helping them to remove obstacles that hold them back.
About Us
The Touchme Foundation (TMF) is a registered Non-Profit, Non-Religious Non-Partisan , Non Political and Non-Governmental Organization whose programmes are focused on the eradication of poverty in Nigeria. Touch Me Foundation was formally registered under the Companies and Allied Matters (CAMA) with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on 23rd October , 2020, even though the organization had already commenced charitable giving outreaches in operations informally in March, 2020.
The organization was founded by Prince Ademuyiwa Oduwole JP, a Nigerian who had spent decades in the diaspora and returned home due to his burning passion for touching lives positively. The organization has so far been run through donations from its founder. Over the course of the few months of its existence the organization has been able to reach over four thousand beneficiaries through its charitable giving and other programmes.
Going forward, as the scale and scope of its operations are expanding, the foundation seeks to consummate more partnerships and collaborations towards increased impact and reaching more beneficiaries. The foundation is at different stages of talks to finalize and execute these partnerships.
Vision
To build a society that is free of poverty and where welfare is guaranteed as a bare minimum of being a citizen.
Mission
To reach out to the most vulnerable in society and provide strong support systems to provide them a level playing field to become productive members of society and fulfill their potentials.
