Philanthropic Adedayo Falusi’s ‘Operation Empower Nigerian Women’
We all have our calling in life and assignment committed to our hands, but that of some people would be daunting to many, even to those who also have the capacity but lack the heart.
Adedayo Omolade Falusi, founder of Falusi Adedayo Omolade Foundation (FAO Foundation) is a man of many missions. He was born to serve humanity; make lives better for the poor and those who have never seen the good side of life.
The serial entrepreneur is generous to all and sundry, particularly women.
At every given opportunity, he has never ceased to emphasize that the essence of FAO Foundation is empowerment, reason why setting up the women folks in business has been of great focus for the visoner.
Women in Lagos, Delta and Ondo states have benefitted tremendously from Adedayo Falusi’s acts of kindness.
Adedayo Falusi has organised several vocational trainings for women and young girls, emphasising the importance of them being self-reliant because of the critical position they occupy in the society.
Earlier this year, the graduate of Babcock University shared a post on his Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/adedayo_hog/ ) with the caption: “Jan 1 Vocational Training for Women and Girls in Oworonshoki in partnership with the Stellar Initiative from Jan 21-23, 2022.”
Falusi followed the initial post with another with the caption: “I’m raising £10,000.00 until 30/01/2022 for FAO Foundation. Can you help?”
The FAO Foundation visioner expressed at the event, which took place in the Oworonshoki area of Lagos, that when women are empowered, poverty is easily defeated.
“Women constitute more than half of the population of this country and unfortunately, they are marginalised when it comes to issues of economic empowerment. It is, therefore, logical that if we want to improve our society, we have to improve, lift, empower the womenfolk,” explained Falusi
Speaking further, Falusi said: “Many single mothers, as well as young girls who are not old enough to be mothers but have been taken advantage of, are loitering the streets without hope and nothing doing.”
He added: “To take as many as possible women, especially single mothers off the street by empowering them with business and skills acquisition as well as financial grants for take-off capital.”
