BOBNEL was established on 16th November, 1999 with inspiration and the undying urge to touch positively, the lives of the less privileged in our society. It was completely the Act of God. It has made its modest contribution to alleviating the sufferings of the less privilege ever since.
BOBNEL Child Support Foundation – A Humanitarian, Non- Governmental Organization aimed solely at reaching out to the physically challenged and the less privileged children and people in our society. It also holds programmes for the less privileged for whom we seek to reach out to and touch in a way like never before and with the purpose of pursuing one great vision geared towards a positive, long-time change and betterment of our society by providing, urgently and today, that crucial support which will make the Nigeria child of today, a responsible adult, a good leader and a world-class citizen of tomorrow.
There is no gainsaying the fact that there are many children today in our Nigeria society-millions of them, who are greatly underprivileged by their circumstances of birth or readily by the prevailing socio-economic realities of our time, by reason of which most of them, if left unaided, will certainly not attain their apparent potentialities.
Yet, many of these children are highly talented or gifted. All have the right to qualitative care, education, good-homes, right nourishment, protection from harmful influences and environment, etc. Government could try, but it will never be able to reach out to all those who are so classed. Caring for them and supporting them, therefore, will not only help them attain their potentialities, but ensure a better future and continuity for our nation and heritage. It is the vision of BOBNEL CHILD SUPPORT FOUNDATION to pursue and attain this laudable goal for our community in partnership like-minded members of the society. In its six years of existence, BOBNEL CHILD SUPPORT FOUNDATION has regularly visited, fed and assisted less privileged children in physically challenged children homes and orphanages and well established institutions that have benefited from our support includes;
