OUR IMPACT / NIGERIA
Our partnership with Mummy’s Orphanage in Nigeria is an ongoing effort to help children and also support mothers. The partnership is an opportunity to work with the grassroots organization reaching out to end abandonment, poverty, and home insecurity for children.
In 2020, AFO joined with Mummy’s Orphanage to continue to work on offering a meaningful life for children less privileged. Mummy’s Orphanage is in Benin City, Nigeria. The orphanage offers an undisturbed and safe, private environment to call home for 20 children ranging from ages 6 months to 17 years. The orphanage offers adoption services and education and health benefits for children residing in the institution. Along with being home for some children, the orphanage also offers services to the community, such as day care services for working mothers and birthday celebrations for community children with special guests and Bible studies.
The support will provide residents of the orphanage education, health benefits, and adoption opportunities for children. The orphanage provides medical care, food security, and a safe space for community children and families. The partnership with AFO is an opportunity to work with the grassroots organization working to end abandonment, poverty, and home insecurity for children.

All For One continues to be passionate about building a strong community of volunteers that complements the countless efforts of our organization. Active volunteers’ enthusiasm encourages all of us. We believe that each of our stories is critical to the legacy and impact that we have in the world. Each actively involved volunteer will share a short story of themselves and their purpose for joining the mission.
Volunteers select an area of interest and write a short story of themselves, including what motivates and inspires them, what activities fill their day, their values, and how they can add to All For One’s culture.
Loving what you do is the epitome of fulfillment. An ideal volunteer embodies a love of selfless giving of themselves, their talents, and their time. Volunteering is a generous and noble feat where one offers time, self, skills, and talents freely. Giving selflessly is a powerful attribute to give back to the community. The volunteer questionnaire assists in identifying and developing characteristics ideal for being a volunteer for All For One.
