donations and support
AREF solicited for donations or sponsorship to execute some well-meaning humanitarian projects. But unfortunately, most of these appeals did not receive the desired responses to sustain these laudable projects.
Food Outreach Initiative: To take care of vulnerable in the society.
The pilot project was executed on June 20th, 2022 where 400 people in four different locations in Lagos benefited from the Initiative:
Iyana Iba – Igando – Ikotun, Iyana Ipaja – Alaguntan – Pleasure, Surulere – Lawanson – Idi Araba – Yaba
Government Resettlement Centre for the Destitute, Oko-Oba, Ebute-Metta, Lagos
The outcome was a huge success as attested to by the Sponsors when the Press was briefed at the AREF’s Corporate Headquarters on June 20th, 2022
Peace and Environmental Education Project:
The idea will support the impact of an earlier initiative – Peace Education for West African Communities (PEWAC), which was designed in collaboration with Peace Institute to catch the children young with our Peace Message for peaceful co-existence.
Quick Impact project (Skills Acquisition):
This is intended to lift needy people above poverty level. AREF is in partnership with Spiritnet Mentorship Centre located at Ogombo, Ajah, Lagos. We have successfully and jointly trained some locals.
AREF Microfinance Project:
This is designed to empower the would-be entrepreneurs with seed money to enable them practice what they have learnt. A modest soft loan facility is being considered once they can come forward to prove themselves as worthy of being considered. The facility is refundable under a prescribed but affordable terms and conditions
It is an opportunity to brainstorm on the main issues that can facilitate Peace and Development. Projects that can uplift humanity, especially policies with inherence values and capacity building initiative for the media. This will enable them to disseminate AREF’s activities to the outside world for inclusiveness on any of its impactful projects. Such attempts will add value to the activities of AREF.
