At OROL we strive to remove pity and put smiles on the faces of less privileged children. We provide opportunities for young people to explore different leadership skills and develop their leadership potential through trainings and workshops. Our activities cut across; education, social events, leadership skills, gender equality, entrepreneurship skills training, psychosocial support for orphans and vulnerable children, and advocacy for young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights with more emphasis on HIV and AIDS.
OROL is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria (CAC). It became officially incorporated as OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative in 2011. However, it was commonly known as OROL Foundation in various communities for over two years before registration. The OROL Board legally changed the name of the organization to include a better description of its mission i.e. OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative.
