Bunmi Adedayo Foundation recently launched its 1K4Change campaign, a crowd funding initiative in Lagos to raise N100, 000, 000, that is, N1000 from 100,000 people.

According to the Chairman, Board of Directors of the Foundation, Babatunde Akinleye, the campaign would provide the general public with an opportunity to ‘do good’ in little ways that do not hurt their pocket.

For ease of donation, the campaign has adopted multiple donation channels like the online payment portal at www.1k4change.org, direct bank transfer, USSD payment (*402*00006375*1000#) and Donation Boxes at all Tastee Fried Chicken (TFC) outlets.

The campaign is aimed at raising funds from the public to pursue the Foundation’s vision of transforming the educational landscape in Public Primary Schools. With an emphasis on helping children from indigent background, the foundation employs a holistic and transformational approach in improving the learning outcomes by meeting all the requirements for quality education in its adopted schools.

Since inception in January 2016, the foundation has adopted five (5) schools, two of these schools have been completely transformed through a bouquet of programmes and interventions which include; Continuous Professional Development for Teachers, Remodelling and Renovation of School Buildings, Library, Class Room Furniture’s, Sports facilities and ICT Lab.

Through BAF intervention, these two schools have now among the best Public Primary Schools in Lagos State. In line with this model, the campaign is aimed at sourcing for funds to implement identified projects at the three remaining schools, namely; Ire Akari Primary school, Isolo, Ebenezer Primary School, Egbeda and Community Primary School, Lakowe in Lagos State.

The Influencers signed up for 1k4change include celebrities and On-Air personalities like Ali Baba, Comedian AY, Falz, Ogbolor, Gbenga Aborowa, BellaRose Okojie, Mannie, Benny Ark and Debola Lagos, amongst others. Also partnering with Bunmi Adedayo Foundation on this campaign is City 105.1FM and Tastee Fried Chicken.

Speaking at the event, Femi Odutuga of City105.1FM reiterated his organisation’s support for the campaign and further expressed City FM’s commitment to partner with the foundation for the long haul on the 1K4Change Campaign and across other projects. Modupe Folorusho, General Manager, Tastee Fried Chicken applauded the initiative and stressed that the menace of poor quality education will come back to haunt everyone later if not attended to now.
