Ife-ooye Elegant Women Association
The founder of Ife Ooye Elegant Women saw a need to increase awareness and donations for the wellbeing of women in our community. Ife Ooye was founded on the 02/10/16 under the able leadership of Mrs Temilomo Lawal(JP) and is registered as a charity organisation.
The organisation is a non political organisation, thus individual political affiliation is not taken into account when becoming a member of the organisation. The organisation belongs to all and sundry, provided you are daughters of or married to Ile- Ife indigene.
Our organisation was founded to create and sustain economic empowerment and social rapport for the advancement of Ife Ooye Elegant Women world wide. As a charity organisation we are set out to solve common socio-economic problems in our communities. For instance, there are so many socio-economic challenges/ problems in our community to pick from as a Charity Organisation, such as poverty, assisting the widows, giving scholarships to the indigent pupils/students, caring for the less privileged children and caring for the Elderly. The one the association agreed to look into now is taking care of the elderly with very poor background in our community. The plan is to start from one Akodi/agbole to another after which we can implore Kabiyesi to give the group a piece of land to build the Secretariat office complex/the Elderly People’s Home.
