Home / About us
Chosen child orphanage and care center is a registered non-profit non-Governmental charity Organization which runs an orphanage that provides care, support, shelter and protection for orphan children, abandoned children, rescue operations for sexually and physically abused children and children with special needs. The initiative was a passion born out of a deep empathy and sincere concerns for this class of silent majority who are not as lucky as some privileged children. Some of them who would have been highly successful professionals have been lost due to reckless abandonment and harsh realities of economic activities. Some of them are leaders of tomorrow but for them to be leaders of tomorrow they have to be healthy today.
We are located at plot 2A Gaskiya estate Badia/Ijora, Lagos State Nigeria. Badia is a remote area and is a notorious place where child abuse are daily on the increase especially sexual abuses and we are not open to the opportunities which other homes in the urban cities have
We have so many children and among them are four undergraduates
Many are in primary schools, and many in secondary schools. Some of them were abused mostly by people known to them. Although some of the culprits have been arrested who are now under prosecution even with our little financial capacity.
For the sexually abused, we are advocating a school where they can be mentored,counselled and monitored to enable them focus on the beneficial things of the future rather than dwelling on their past tragic experiences. We have acquired a piece of land and have started developing it but got stuck due to no funds .We want to appeal to the general public to come to our aid.
