Again, Freedom Foundation releases its docu-series, ‘My Lagos Diaries’


Last week, faith-based and not-for-profit organisation, Freedom Foundation presented another series of its docu-series, My Lagos Diaries, to a selected member of the press at the FilmHouse IMAX Cinema, Lekki, Lagos.

Filmed in a diary-like format, the documentary chronicles a 12-year journey embarked upon by Dr. Tony Rapu, a pastor and social reformer and the Freedom Foundation to highlight the myriad struggles of residents of Lagos’ poorest communities.

The 13-episode documentary series tells real stories of rehabilitated prostitutes, drug addicts, beggars and other neglected individuals in the society. The producer believes the documentary will sensitise the general public about the struggles of the less privileged while providing an opportunity for interested individuals and organisations to support the Foundation’s vision via donations and funding

Speaking at the event, Dr Rapu said, “It is easy to take for granted the privileges we enjoy often forgetting that the difference between us and many of these poor people is just the exposure to education and opportunities we have been blessed with. That is why it becomes a responsibility for those of us who have these privileges to create lasting opportunities for others, however small.”

According to Rapu, Freedom Foundation as a faith based, non-profit organisation, committed to addressing the ever-mounting and staggering challenges in the society by empowering individuals who are plagued by various categories of social and economic challenges.

“At Freedom Foundation, we believe that everyone has the right to live freely, free from addictions, free from sex slavery, free from ignorance and free from poverty. We actively partner with the government, other NGOs, civil society organizations, corporate institutions and individuals to make this mission a reality,” Rapu stated.

The show airs on TVC, Sundays at 9:30pm; Ebonylife TV, Sundays at 3pm; AIT, Sundays at 6pm and Sliverbird TV, Saturdays at 7:30pm
