Why we exist

Redefining the Future Global Foundation was birthed out of the need to take proactive steps to curb the increasing menace of sexual violence, discrimination, inhuman and degrading treatment meted out to indigent and vulnerable persons in the society. Despite the plethora of laws, policies, and conventions locally and internationally enacted to protect these beneficiaires, the hardship they face is still on the rise. Sexual violence appears to be a neglected area in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. The menace is largely underreported in Nigeria largely due to illiteracy, ignorance, stigmatization and corruptions and this tends to underestimate the true scale of the problem. Women, children, persons with disabilities and young persons’ suffer disproportionately from these aspects; one cannot imagine what they go through, as the situation is pathetic. It is thus imperative to promote a coordinated movement against these trends in Nigeria and the rest of Africa.

Our Mission Statement

Protection and promotion of the reliefs, interest andrights of vulnerable persons in the society through legal intervention, awareness campaigns, education, social activities, research and development.

our Vision
