Our founder is a double-hatted volunteer at Christians Against Poverty (CAP), an organisation with values fully aligned to Lola’s personal values and that of Soluman Consultancy. Lola is a Job Coach at a local CAP Job Club, supporting individuals seeking employment to regain self-confidence and enhance employability skills. The second volunteer role is being a Manager for CAP’s Life Skills course, enabling people on low incomes to live fuller lives by providing transformational tools to reduce/remove some of their everyday struggles.
When Lola was asked how and why she adds an additional 12-14 hours of work to an already fully packed week, the reply was simple:
Lola Bejide“To see someone transform from being disheartened and totally downcast to having a strong sense of hope and visions of a brighter future is phenomenal and immensely gratifying to witness, topped with sharing the good news of God’s endless love is priceless.”
Our Founder sits on the board of Trustees of a local Nigerian grassroots NGO; Myrtle Blessing Foundation. A Christian charity that seeks to alleviate the everyday struggles of the poor in very tangible ways that are achieved through core programmes: Project 500 – feeding 500 mouths a meal a day. Clothe the Needy via charitable donations of clothing and Educate the marginalised.
