NIGERIA: Teenagers Donate Hostel to Charity

Youths have been advised to take care of the needy and less privileged in the society by supporting them towards realising their dreams.  Bashorun of Owu Kingdom, Chief Doja Adewolu, gave this advice at the official commissioning of an ultra-modern hostel building donated by the Leave A Donation Charity (LAD) to Stella Obasanjo Children’s Home in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.

According to him, the three teenagers, Laolu Adeeyo, Anjolaoluwa Amosun and Damilola Animashaun ,came together with a “shared vision of contributing their quota to assisting the less privileged in our society.”

He described their vision as second to none, encouraging other young children to emulate them by showing love to the needy and assisting their situation.

Laolu, Anjola and Damilola in 2011 formed a charity organisation called LAD an acronym for Leave A Donation (LAD) from the first initial of each of their names and went on to organise an impressive fund raiser all by themselves in December 2011 at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.

They used proceeds from the fund raiser to build the ultra modern hostel building donated to Stella Obasanjo Children’s Home, which comprises of two 10-bed dormitory styled rooms and six dormitory style toilets/showers, fully kitted out with beds/cots and beddings.

Laolu is the son of Mr. Sola Adeeyo a well known banker and the Chairman of Astral Waters Ltd. Anjolaoluwa, is the daughter of Senator Ibikunle Amosun, a Chartered Accountant by profession/Governor of Ogun State, whilst Damilola Animashaun is the daughter of Mr. Bankole Animashaun, the Director/Corporate lawyer for LaCasera & Animashaun group of companies.
