Pastor Bimbo Odukoya Foundation (PBOF) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental, independent faith-based organisation in Nigeria that provides information, resources, support and training to women and youth particularly young girls in disadvantaged communities across Nigeria.
PBOF is a legacy foundation established in the memory of Bimbo Odukoya, a women and girls rights advocate, and national merit award winner, who died tragically in a plane crash in 2005. The Foundation established in 2007, has continued the work she started in Muslim and Christian communities.
It envisions a world in which every woman and girl-child is not only safe, but empowered to be an impact full member of society.
The Pastor Bimbo Odukoya Foundation has provided succour to indigent women and girls, some of whom have been victims of unwanted pregnancies and in need of financial and medical assistance.
It has organised several empowerment programmes for students in secondary and tertiary institutions with a view to raising well rounded future leaders.
It has also provided scholarships for indigent students at all levels of educational pursuit. In 2008, PBOF established Hope House, a shelter and rehabilitation centre for victims of various forms of domestic and sexual abuse.
The Foundation frequently embarks on an assessment of the prevailing needs of its focal group and amends its offerings accordingly. Some of its initiatives include:
• The Hope House Project
• Peer Education for Prefect project (P.E.P)
• Girls’ Empowered Conference
• Project Sexual Harassment and Prevention program (Project S.H.A.R.P)
