What is Erinlayo ?

Erinlayo is a charitable organisation that believes no matter how small we can all make a contribution to change the world to one where every life matters, where no person needs to choose between having food to eat, opportunity of an education or good health.

We work mainly in the West Africa sub-region with some activities in the UK. We’ll work with other organisations fighting for social justice and opportunities for all. We fight poverty by providing practical help in key areas of education, health and assistance to vulnerable members of the society such as individuals with a disability and elderly.

What we do
To alleviate poverty we must tackle

A person without education in a developing world is almost certainly confined to a life of poverty. Such a person is more vulnerable to sickness and job losses where it exists, which is a great barrier to social equality. By supporting schools and communities to areas we work.

Erinlayo believes that there is a lot people can do to maintain their health as long as they have the right information. Through our mobile health clinic we aim to reduce instances of death caused by preventable diseases such as typhoid. We will do this by giving assistance to purchase drugs and cost of hospital treatment by selection based on need and resources.

As you will notice from these pictures education is in crisis. The elite minority middle class send their children to private schools. It is widely regarded that a lack of education equals lack of opportunity, education help people develop the skills they need to make themselves heard, make positive changes in their lives and break the cycle of poverty. Many pupils/students missed school not through choice but because of being too poor. Cost of school fees, uniforms and books are more than many parents can afford. Communities quite often cannot afford to maintain their schools.

Where the parents send their children to school, it is often the boys that get to go. Girls may either be kept at home to help with household chores or for other reasons but quite often it is due to lack of money. These girls grow into motherhood, their exclusion from education only worsen their inequality and wretchedness.

We will help buy bricks and mortar to rebuild and/or provide extra classrooms and equip it. In other cases we help towards the cost of school uniform and books whilst other may get a year or two scholarships.
We might support and help organise communities to demand what is rightfully theirs from their government.

In this way, we try to influence funding and push for better access to schools.
