25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

WHO WE ARE

Wale Adeleye Foundation for Women and Girl Child Development (WAF) is a Non-Governmental organization working to improve the quality of life for poor women and support the education of girl child in Nigeria and around the world. A lot of women out there are suffering; some needs only encouragement and support to navigate what they are passing through, some need just a token to be empowered.

Girl Child deserves a future. It is not a sin to be born as a girl but not as a son, girl child education is important, they are not supposed to be forced into early marriage. An educated girl is more likely to grow up healthy, and be able to determine what is good for her future, like when she’s ready for marriage and children. We understand the importance of education for girl children. We will do whatever it takes to ensure every last girl child has a chance to grow up healthy, educated and safe – her best chance for a bright future.

This Foundation has therefore come to unlock the possibility for women empowerment and Girl Child education and development. We will support the education of girls who may not otherwise have the chance to learn — We will also empower women, changing the course of their lives, their children’s lives and the future of their communities. We will support and empower them in our little ways to see that they have a means of livelihood. Like in men and boys, there are values in women and girls lives. We are therefore inspired to improving the quality of life for them in Nigeria and around the world.
