In her quest to show the love of Christ to all mankind irrespective of religion or tribe, Prophet Ade Ologbonyo foundation has cared for over 600 widows and awarded 40 scholarships to students who are now graduates since the last 15 years with over other 30 students still on scholarships.

Many young widows and orphans have been trained at various level of apprenticeship with necessary equipment such has sowing machine (both manual and industrial), grinding machines, shoe making machines, generating set and so on, gifted the beneficiaries.

Ade Ologbonyo's Foundation started in April 4, 2008 through a divine instruction given to a renowned prophet of the gospel, Prophet Joseph Ade Ologbonyo where two Bible verses were given to him: James 1 verse 27 which says "Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world" and Exodus 22 verse 22 to 24 which says "You shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child. If you afflict them in any way, and they cry at all to Me, I will surely hear their cry; and My wrath will become hot, and I will kill you with the sword; your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless."

Prophet Ologbonyo in an interview, said God told him that widows and orphans are suffering and He (God) has given him the assignment of taking care of them.

He revealed that it was not easy in the beginning because they didn’t have any financial support for over eight years.  

"Sometimes, we would have to borrow to meet up as the population kept increasing, but to God be the glory for how far He has brought us. Some people see what we are doing as a show to get people’s attention but I’ve said this times without number that if giving our all for evangelism is show, I wish we can all join this show, as long as souls are saved for Jesus. Most people in this life think that being happy is about having more money, more power or more control over things or other people rather, these make a person unhappy when one get obsessed with it," he noted.

Prophet Ologbonyo further explained that the real happiness comes through benevolence to others, such as care and doing things to help others etc, which according to him, expands one's being, leading to inevitable happiness.  

He added that; "I’m much more happier and fulfilled whenever I’m privileged to put a smile on someone's face or solve problems. The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is one gospel. It mustn’t be during Christmas or festive period alone. It should be as God helps and leads. Jesus Christ preached and practiced one gospel which is love all His life (Deuteronomy 6:5, Matthew 22:37)."

The renowned Prophet while quoting Mark chapter 12 verse 30 to 31 which says “you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength, this is the first commandment. The second is this, you shall love your neighbours as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these," said we must spread love among one another in line with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

According to him, it is high time for everyone irrespective of the religious diversity and tribal differences to love one another genuinely, saying where there is genuine love, there will be progress, unity and peace.

"Let the spirit of love form the foundation of our existence. People who genuinely love are happier than haters. Whatever we plant will come back to us in folds. Rather than spreading hatred, let us plant the seed of love, and we shall reap peace, unity and progress," he added.

The Ade Ologbonyo foundation has contributed immensely and is still contributing to the welfare of Nigerians, especially the people of Ekiti State and its environs, through the provision of free health services, food items, and clothing materials, paying of school fees, giving out tools such as sewing machines, grinding machines, shoe making machines, etc to widows and orphans.

Happiness, hope, joy and untold smile are expressions seen in the lives of windows and orphans in response to the good gestures of love from the Foundation. The foundation is non governmental, non religious but touching lives in a positive way is their priority.
