An embodiment of compassion and epitome of generosity, it is no gainsaying that Funmilayo has positioned her outfits as platforms to reach out to the needy. This can be attested to by the quantum of her philanthropic and humanitarian activities that dot every nock and cranny of the society.
To drive home her love for the suffering masses of this great country, she established FunmiAyinke Humanity Foundation, an organisation she has vigorously used to touch many lives through job creation, empowerment programmes for widows, single parents, abandoned children and children under the care of single parents. To date, the foundation has empowered over 10,000 women and sponsored more than 500 undergraduates among other gestures.
She is deeply committed to youth development and empowerment. Her weekly online Talent Hunt programme attracts more than 30,000 participants. Youths are trained through this platform on career and how to discover themselves and the inherent talents in them. All sections of the programme are captivating as they are fashioned to trigger the hidden treasure in the participants. The programme also involves competition through which the best five candidates receive cash gift every weekend.
One striking aspect of this humble personality is that she did not wait to become a billionaire before venturing into humanitarian service and she does it with all sense of humility. Her early life experience must have influenced her greatly in this regard. Here is a young lady who lost her father at a tender age.
