We work mainly in the West Africa sub-region with some activities in the UK. We 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.
“The greatest of evils and the worst of crimes is poverty” George Bernard Shaw
It is a crime not just by the perpetrators of such evils but also by the countless millions among us that are ready to tolerate the destruction and unacceptable plight of fellow human beings.
We at Erinlayo believes that poverty is man made tragedy that destroys many lives. Every second of the day some one dies because of poverty; women dying at childbirth or a child destroyed by malaria or diarrhoea.
And in the words of Nelson Mandela ...”it is man made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of Human beings”
I shall pass this way but once; any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Tomorrow may not come, let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this life again.
“One person with a believe is equal to a force of 99 who have interests”
