Dream Nurture Initiative is a global relief, youth-run non-profit organization committed to bringing life and hope to vulnerable and indigenous women and children.
Hi there! 👋🏻
I’m Seyi Oluyole, and I am the founder and convener of Dream Nurture Initiative. Dream Nurture foundation was founded in 2015, I recently left The United States to move back to Nigeria to start an art centered organization for street children. In a very short while we expanded to also enable us to cater to vulnerable women in slum communities starting with Ebute- metta where I grew up and Ikorodu where I currently live.
7 years down the line, DNI has morphed into a sustainable nonprofit catering to young girls and women in marginalized communities. Equipping them with the skills, knowledge and confidence for success. I believe every girl deserves an opportunity to success irrespective of her background.
For over 7 years, Dream Nurture Initiative has been working to create a world where vulnerable women and children are empowered and their rights are protected.
Over 6 million girls are out of school in Nigeria
Over 40% of Nigerian population live below the poverty line with under $1 per day
22 million estimates of child brides live in Nigeria
At least 19.9 million girls and women in Nigeria have undergone Female Genital mutilation (FGM)
Over the past seven years, as an organization, we have provided 7,400 children from low income communites access to quality education.In line with SDG goal 4, Our organization donates basic education and welfare items to children from marginalized communities at the beginning of the school year.
Barriers to education for the children include poverty, many of them do not have school materials which hinders them from going back to school. Our consistent outreach to these children has reduced the rate of out of school children.
