Hope For Sure Foundation: Giving Wings to Nigerian Women, Children



Eradicating extreme poverty for all people everywhere by 2030 is a pivotal goal of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. When achieved, it will have ripple positive and significant impacts on social, political and economic state of the nation.

The United Nations is seriously committed to achieving this through its Millennium Development Goals MDGs and targets.

While MDG 1 seeks to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, MDG 2 centres on universal primary education, MDG 3 seeks to promote gender equality and empower women while MDG 5 and 6 focus on maternal healthcare, malaria and other diseases.

This underscores the importance of the issues which concern not just Nigeria but Africa and the world.

In Nigeria, one of the moving force that is rallying the nation towards achieving the MDG goals is the Hope for Sure Foundation, as championed by the visionary Naomi Olapeju Sigismund.

A licensed broker, social worker, proud daughter of Abeokuta Ogun State, Nigeria and graduate of Business administration from Sheridan College, she also founded the African Canada investment and expo summit.

Through foundation, she has committed resources, network and expertise to significantly empowering women and children in many ways and via multiple initiatives.

Speaking about her passion in a media chat, she said, “Our mission is to improve the quality of life, offer relief from poverty through empowerment and advancement of education amongst youths.”

“Our foundation holds medical outreach twice yearly since 2015 to impact the lives of both young and old in the communities. We gave out 1000 free reading glasses in free treatment for over 3,000 people through our team of doctors in Nigeria.

“We empowered over 5,000 youth and women, fed over 3,000 children, and provided medically support for over
10,000 elderly men and women. We also assist HIV patients and victims of human trafficking,” she added.

Business Empowerment

Naomi Olapeju has provided platforms to support entrepreneurship building and empowerment for women and girls. She is known to be hardworking, dependable, reliable, diligent, versatile and an innovative humanitarian and philanthropist who has facilitated a cordial relationship between Canada and Nigeria with investment in humanity through international charity engagement.

In recognition and acknowledgment of her outstanding support towards societal development and progress, she’s a recipient of many award categories.

Hope for sure foundation was birthed out of her passion for humanity: giving hope to the hopeless, putting smiles on the aged, helping the rejected to feel loved, supporting the widows to be who they want to be regardless of how society has painted them due to the circumstances they found themselves, and helping youth to and their
purpose in life, picking the youth from the street and empowering them and lots more.

Her passion for service to humanity has taken her to different regions in Canada, different states in Nigeria and other countries freely giving back to humanity in her capacity.

Skill Acquisition

Through our program, many are helped to actualize their dreams by aiding the
underprivileged to obtain work with public or private organisations through academic certificates, providing a source of income, and enabling them to become positive contributors to the community.

Youth Empowerment

The foundation provides free development program aimed at creating opportunities that will encourage and develop the youths to be morally responsible, self-reliant and financially productive citizens.

Because youths will be the future of our country and there is a need to motivate them to do something for the development of themselves and the country.

Girl Child Education

The foundation offers education support to girls. This is borne out of our understanding that girl Child education, across the global, particularly in Africa and parts of Asia, remains key.

The marginalization of girls’ education is linked to religious and cultural practices. Poverty, poor infrastructure, violence, and fragility are other contributing factors inhibiting girls’ education. Similarly, child marriage is also a critical challenge facing girls all over the world.

According to UNESCO recent report, more than 41,000 girls under the age of 18 marry every day. A child birthing child is a disaster already happening. According to UNESCO estimates, around the world, 129 million
girls are out of school, including 32 million of primary school age, and 97 million of secondary school age. It has been observed in some climes that educated women
contribute to rapid socio -economic development.

Education gives women a disposition for a lifelong acquisition of knowledge, values, attitudes, competence, confidence, independence, and skills.
