What is the Ibadan Orphanage Tour All About?
The Ibadan Orphanage Tour is a program of the AuntyLanreInitiative, to reach to Orphans and the less privileged in the city of Ibadan, Southwest Nigeria. The orphanage tour was started in 2015 by Lanre Onasanya, Founder of Aunty Lanre Initiative. Lanre Onasanya has always looked for opportunities to help people, especially the most vulnerable members of the society. One day, she was in her house when she suddenly started to feel some ideas taking shape in her head. She got a pen and paper and began to write down the Ideas, Those rough ideas became the annual Ibadan Orphanage Tour. Every August and September since then, the AuntyLanre Initiative team has been visiting orphanages and other vulnerable people. Her marriage to Bolu Onasanya has only helped the vision grow even more and helped the message spread even wider.
So is there going to be an edition of the Ibadan Orphanage Tour this year?
Yes, there will be. Every Saturday this August, starting from Saturday 5th of August 2017, The AuntyLanre team, led by Lanre and Bolu Onasanya, will visit 12 Orphanages in the city Ibadan (3 every Saturday of the month). This year, the tour is expected to reach out to about 500 orphans and vulnerable children living in orphanage homes across Ibadan. They will spend time playing with the kids, give them stuff and share life experiences with them.
