The global vision of Dr. Siju Iluyomade
Her efforts to empower the less privileged and support the effort of government in all areas of endeavor has been acclaimed as one of the most outstanding among the lots that follow the same passion as his. Regardless of religion, tribe or ethnicity, corporate lawyer and philanthropist, Dr. Siju Iluyomade has continued to give her all to improve the lives of many, using her Arise Women Foundation as a vehicle to intervene in so many areas of human need. This character trait, which many agreed, resonated in the birth of the non-governmental organization (NGO). Not only that, Siju, as she is affectionately known, is known for nurturing the charitable hopes and determination to help women thrive effectively in life with the institutionalization of the Handmaidens Women in Leadership Series (HWILS ) to train intentional leaders.
Siju, who recorded 58 points on Saturday January 8, said his dream was to ensure that Arise affects every aspect of human life around the world in terms of health, housing, education, empowerment , agriculture and many more. The gorgeous woman added that over the past 14 years, her foundation has accomplished so much by setting up structures such as hospitals, school buildings, a computerized library and boreholes in many communities across the states. Abuja, Ondo, Imo, Kebbi and Lagos to name a few. Through her humanitarian work, she also branded a food basket called “Arise Pink Bucket” – the contents of which include food items like rice, semovita, tomato paste and peanut oil – distributed to every local government in Lagos State. This year has already started with Amuwo-Odofin LG. Another of his initiatives, the “Arise COVID-19 Clinic” was also activated where Booster and COVID-19 vaccines were administered to people with the support of the Lagos State Government.
It should also be noted that although Siju is the wife of Pastor Idowu Iluyomade of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Parish in the City of David and runs a faith-based NGO, she did not discriminate by helping the less privileged in the country, regardless of their ethnic, tribal or religious affinity.
