“We are here today to thank the management of the NYSC for partnering with us in our drive to support and raise underprivileged widows and their children in the society.

“You have been there for us over the years with the release and participation of your staff and youth corps members during our annual charity walk tagged, ‘Walk4Hope’ and we would like more collaborations in the future in other areas as well,” Mr Akinwande said.

In his reaction, the Lagos State coordinator of the NYSC, Mr Eddy Megwa, thanked members of the CBA Foundation for the gesture and promised to keep supporting the NGO.

“We are grateful for the support and I want to commend your NGO for all the good works you have been doing in the society. May the Almighty God continue to guide and strengthen you to do more,” Megwa said.

Established in 2015, the CBA Foundation, under its 5-point agenda, has reached out to thousands of underprivileged widows and children through skills acquisition training, health intervention, business start-ups and provision of clothing, nutrition and tuition fees for the children.

Since its formation, 5,600 widows have been empowered through its women empowerment and capacity building initiative, while 3,500 widows have also received health interventions and food items. The foundation has also reinstated 45 children in school, empowered 120 widows financially to start a business of their own and also provided palliatives to 250 widows during the COVID-19 pandemic lock-down.
