In June 2022, Legend Golden Care Foundation (LGCF) formally launched its new corporate office in Abuja. In the words of our Executive Director, “LGCF chose to officially open its doors on June 16, the Day of the African Child, because of how emblematic this historic day is of our goals and objectives.”

In a country where 33% of children are out of school, 25% of girls and 10% of boys have been victims of sexual abuse, and 70% of inmates are being held without trial, LGCF is positioned to change the narrative. Since its founding in 2012, the organization has expanded its thematic areas to address three major areas impacting the African child: prison and social justice, education and livelihood, sexual and gender-based violence.

“LGCF is concerned with providing solutions to not just the problems of the African child but to the problems of all who fall within our thematic areas. To this end, we look forward to impacting the lives of 50,000 children and 25,000 inmates of correctional facilities over the next five years,” Executive Director, Mrs. Kanayo Olisa-Metuh declared.

The event was graced by the Chief Commissioner, Public Complaints Commission (PCC), Hon. Abimbola Ayo Yusuf, Programme Director, ‘Lean on Me’, on Kapital FM, Abuja, Mr. John Chukwura, and stakeholders from the Nigerian Correction Service, faith-based organizations, media houses and not-for-profit organizations.
