About our NGO

About our NGO

Satus Dignus CRI was created in January 2017 in order to help street children in Nigeria.  We believe that offering a positive environment is key to helping them to grow and become part of Nigerian society. Our non-profit organisation is committed to giving each child a chance to enjoy their early years, get a proper education and benefit from life changing opportunities.

Our goals

As an NGO in Nigeria, Satus Dignus CRI pursues four goals:

  • To provide housing to children sleeping on the streets
  • To ensure that they are properly fed, benefit from medical care and are looked after by social professionals
  • To give them a proper education and any necessary training, as well as to provide counselling and activities to integrate into the Nigerian community
  • To reinforce children’s rights by advocacy work with various governmental institutions.

Our Principles

  • There are no bad children, only bad circumstances
  • Every child deserves a childhood and equal access to life transforming opportunities

Short History

Based in Ibadan, our charity was born on the fifth of January 2017 with a Facebook post describing the proposed project. A messenger group was created shortly after with the following people to start working on the actualisation:

  • Detoun Omooba
  • Bababee Omoghetto
  • Olubukola Atanda Nike
  • Aderonke Ige
  • Kehinde Adeola Onaopemipo
  • Justina Babyj Onyetube
  • Chundung Gyang
  • Busola Oluwajulugbe
  • Lola Aigoro
  • Peju Bakrin
  • Biodun Bamgboye
  • Later joined by Stephen Jinadu.

From this initial work, the centre was born. An apartment was found and furnished, and the necessary repair work was done. We then met with government officials, employed our first staff members, Bukola and Bode; and finally started to meet street children.

Eventually on the 7th of March 2017 our children’s charity welcomed seven boys, who were taken care of by Bode.

After that we received a growing support from our Facebook community and received generous donations from Facebook friends who we can’t thank enough.
