About Us

Adonis Quality Life Initiative is an organization that helps support the needs of the less fortunate families and orphaned children in Nigeria. Our help hand knows no age limit. We aid the unborn, the young, the adults, and the older adults. We conduct charity projects to lessen and eradicate poverty, illiteracy, hunger, maltreatment, homelessness, illness, and depression. We battle all these things together with our volunteers and through donated funds.

Every small effort to help put together will become a major catalyst for change in the lives of the underprivileged in Nigeria. We believe that our organization can play a major role in improving lives today so that their futures may be better, brighter and more promising than the poverty they are accustomed to.

We welcome organizations, private individuals and other charities to collaborate with us so that we may help more people in Nigeria. If you would like to be a sponsor or send your donations, please use our online forms for your convenience.

No Children Deserves to Go Hungry, Not even anyone
Motto: Improving the lives of people makes the world a better place

Mission: To unlock human potential by providing quality life.

To be real
Community solutions are an important resource for the people in Esa Oke and the state that struggle with food insecurity, including our most vulnerable populations — children and working-poor families.

Hungry children struggle to concentrate and learn. They are likely to have higher rates of absenteeism, get sick more frequently and recover more slowly. They are often at a disadvantage relative to their peers.

Our Strategies
Through diverse and strategic collaborations, we provide resources to help schools — and families — and together, we’re changing lives.

This is a very straight forward, no hold barred article. I have not sugar coated anything. The words are plain and simple and often blunt. The reason, this is a very important issue. One that we as a privileged immigrant tend to overlook when it comes to the children of our home country. Western countries is a wonderful place .However, we sometimes forget to look in our backyard. I hope that this piece motivates you and your family to take action, and help save the life of a child that your child probably knows.

Childhood starvation is a grievous and devastating problem for millions of children all over the world. We must remember that there are probably hundreds of children going to bed without dinner because there was simply not enough money for food that night.

The starving little ones
Starvation is not prejudice and affects children everywhere. Although, children living in more poverty stricken areas or countries will more frequently feel the effects of hunger. In our world today, nearly 16,000 children die every day because of starvation, which is essentially one child every five seconds. So count to five and somewhere a child is now dead, by the time you reach 60 a dozen children will have died from hunger. These children are dying because some of their most basic needs are not being met. Either the family is too poor or they are suffering as a result of maltreatment. 2006 saw the deaths of 9.7 million children before their fifth birthday. Nearly all the deaths occurred in developing countries, especially Africa and South Asia. So, no matter where you live, chances are there is a hungry child nearby. It is true that hunger and starvation are often seen among children and families with little or no income, whether they live in the Americas, Europe, Asia or Africa. It can be easy for Politicians and other privileged individuals to shut their eyes to this problem, especially when they have happy healthy children of their own, but for just a moment think of how the other parent may feel. They too love and care for their child but for some reason they are not able to give them enough food. They may feel ashamed and embarrassed as yet another day passes with little food. The pain and sadness they feel is probably equally to the hunger pains their child feels every time a meal is skipped.

Malnutrition effects on Children
This may seem like an obvious question, but often times malnutrition has effects that are not noticed right away or will only be seen further down the road. We all know how it feels when we miss one or two meals during a busy day or because of a doctor’s appointment. For children suffering from malnutrition these symptoms are just the beginning. Malnutrition brings with it a whole host of preventable problems like: fatigue, dizziness, poor growth, bleeding gums, low immunity, lowered ability to concentrate, scaly or dry skin, weak bones and much more. For severely malnourished children these symptoms will often create other problems in their lives. For instance if they have a weak immune system, they are more vulnerable to infections and other illnesses. Also if they are having trouble concentrating, they will perform poorly in school (if they attend) and will experience difficulty when it comes to learning new things. Being malnourished also means that a child is not receiving all the nutrients and vitamins they need. For instance, a severe lack of vitamin A can lead to blindness and iodine deficiency can cause to mental retardation. Ultimately the worst effect of malnutrition is death. Our bodies can function for a while on a limited diet and even no food. Humans come programmed to survive, but the children who are suffering from hunger are living in constant state of survival not because of some calamity but because there is not enough food on the table. Living on little food can eventually rob a person of hope and happiness and no child should have to wonder if they will get to eat today, but sadly millions are oppressed with this worry day after day.

What can I do to help hungry Child?
If you are a parent with an average income or at least an income close to being average, you know how to tend to your child’s hunger needs. You can open the fridge, freezer, or cupboard and retrieve a snack or dinner. For millions of families, getting food for their children or themselves is not that easy. The truly unlucky parents may have to wait in line at a refugee camp for their ration of rice for the day, some may be begging for help on a corner while other scour through the trash trying to find something eatable. There are many things you can do every day to help a starving .In addition to local efforts, there are hundreds of children you can sponsor or family, providing everything from food and clothing. Often the amount is not too burdensome and may mean that you just don’t go out to eat as often or indulge in as many special treats.
