OUR NGOs

The Courage Education Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the empowerment of the Nigerian child through the provision of quality education. It was set up to provide educational assistance to brilliant children who are shackled by poverty. The CEF scholarships are need-based and available to all Nigerian children irrespective of sex, faith or ethnicity.

It has organized various activities in a bid to raise funds and increase awareness of the foundation. This includes its annual public lecture, charity walks and courtesy visits. The organisation started in 2004 and currently supports over 100 indigent students though its scholarship programme. The assistance rendered by the Foundation is given not as a concession but rather as an award for ability that has been shackled by poverty. CEF visits various public schools in high density communities and through classroom teachers and administrators identify children that require aid and assistance. Those selected are put back in schools close to their homes.

The foundation takes care of their school fees and levies, school uniforms, foot wears, books, writing materials and transportation. So far, the foundation has adopted beneficiaries from various states of the Nigerian federation including Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Borno, Cross River, Delta, Edo, Imo, Jigawa, Kwara, Lagos, Nassarawa, Ogun Ondo, Osun and Oyo states. Its administrative office is located in Obanikoro, on the mainland of Lagos. Their goal is to raise N100 million on which to sustain up to 1000 beneficiaries over a period of three years.

The Edensfield Health Initiative was established to provide professional and value added health care services to all, irrespective of race, creed or religion. Their proposed healing centre is intended to help reduce lapses in the health care delivery system in Nigeria and is to be situated in a serene location in Lagos. It will provide health care to cancer patients and support or medication to people living with HIV/AIDS. In the long term it will cater for people with kidney disorders. Edensfield provides services in two principal areas: 1. Medical Healing Services; 2. Medical Research, Support and Information Dissemination. Presently they provide care for people with health challenges, they provide medical care in and out of the country, they provide community health support, they create awareness on major heath issues and partner with other NGOs, Local Government Areas, and religious organizations to combat health challenges in the society.

The initiative recently played host to a team of Indian and South African professionals with a view to setting up a world class Specialist Hospital in Lagos State. The proposed 200 bed hospital will occupy 1.2 hectares of land in Lekki Phase 2 in Lagos. Since its inception in 2009, Edensfield has been able to reach thousands of people through its Medical Missions and Health Awareness Campaigns. It has also been able to sponsor over 20 individuals requiring specialist care for treatment within Nigeria, in the United Kingdom, in India and the USA.

On Saturday 22nd March 2008, Her Excellency Mrs. Abimbola Fashola, the first lady of Lagos State officially declared open the first Heritage Homes Orphanage at 45, Faramobi Ajike Street, Anthony Village, Lagos. The orphanage as at then had been in existence for 14 months (since November 20, 2006). The Heritage Homes is a non-profit, non-governmental, Christian organisation set up with the primary purpose of saving the lives of orphaned and abandoned children in the Nigerian society. The name, The Heritage Homes is derived from the Bible in Psalm 127 verse 3, which says ‘Children are the heritage of the Lord’. This simply means that all children belong to God and we are responsible for them all. The first home is a bungalow of 120 square meters, with capacity to take 30 children. With the assistance of kind individuals and organisations, the home was able to furnish and equip the orphanage with standard amenities to ensure the comfort and well being of the children.

The mission of the home is to save as many abandoned and orphaned children as possible; provide a first class transit home for them where they can develop physically, mentally and spiritually to become useful citizens in the society; and settle orphaned or abandoned children into responsible families through adoption or fostering in the shortest possible time. The Home has held seminars for secondary school students on issues relating to teenage pregnancy and adolescent sexual behaviours and public lectures on fostering and adoption with a view to increasing awareness on such within the Nigerian society.

Early this year, the second home was opened to cater for the increasing number of children in the Lekki Ajah axis.
