Sponsored Post: Givetolive Foundation’s Operation Smile Outreach
Givetolive is a growing organisation that was founded by Mosaku, Simisola Lateefat, an undergraduate of Micro biology in Babcock university.
From the age of 18, Lateefat already had a passion for charity and she lives by the words:
” Kindness is like a baton, when passed to you, you pass to the next person. ”
Lateefat constantly does charity in every little way possible in her immediate environment, she had always wanted to have her own charity organisation. She had her first outreach to Red Cross orphanage, and it reaffirmed her passion to make a difference, to birth dreams and to help lives.
At the age of 19, she summoned the courage to bring her dreams to reality, to give back to the society. So, during her 200 level Christmas holiday she formed a team with some trusted friends and the Givetolive journey began.
Within months, Givetolive has moved from a dream to actual planning and is now looking forward to executing its first outreach; A visit to Little Saints Orphanage in Lagos, themed OPERATION SMILE. Givetolive needs your support in cash or kind to put a smile on the faces of the children at Little Saints Orphanage on the 28th of July. Givetolive as a team can only do a little, but with support from you, the general public, Givetolive can do a lot more. Let’s all join hands to make this first outreach a success.
