Welcome to Benjamin Olajide.org - Official website for Benjamin Olajide Initiatives.
We all are created for a reason on earth and that is to lead a life filled with positive impacts. We are here to make the world a better place. It is my desire to get people all over involved with doing just that. Also knowing that we are not a product of random events but a deliberate creative act of God.
Here listed are 2 projects that my friends and I are embarking on as a start to greater visions I have for myself and the world around me at large.
I attended a meeting some few years back and little pamphlets were shared to us bearing a slogan that has affected my life in a great way; the slogan is: 'be the change you want to see'.
If we all can start doing the little things where we find ourselves in efforts to changing this world for the better, then the world would have been a better place than it is right now. Living for others is one way to fulfillment of destiny in life. The little you think you have is more than enough to meet someone else's needs.
1. Project Awe
This is a worship project planned to hold every month. It is a means of bringing people together regardless of denomination or tribe. This is part of the Church Without Walls Initiative. The maiden edition is slated for later this year as God will help us.
My dream is to bring worshipers from different backgrounds together under one roof to give praise to God as we know how to do it without any discrimination of any kind.
2. Project Back2School
This project is aimed at providing information and resources especially finances to young ones out there who don't know how to get into a university or other higher institutions of learning, especially those in rural areas and the orphans and less privileged ones that cannot afford to pay their fees.
This dream I share with my soulmate, Bose Samson; it burns really deep in her, is to give opportunity to those in such categories and beyond as our plans include scholarship awards to brilliant students after a kind of academic competition such as speech presentation, aptitude tests, mathematics competition, science projects and more. The awards will be given to the best of such exercises.
Donations in cash or kind is welcome from those who can give to this cause as a means of supporting this very project which is top in our heart. There are a lot of young ones that will benefit from this very project as so many children are left to cater for themselves due to religious sentiments, poverty and many other reasons. Let us join hands to give education to all.
There are other projects coming up as we move on. Please check this page from time to time for updates.
