Report from The Guardian says SAGAMU local government area of Ogun State received a massive boost recently with the official launch of a non-governmental organisation, Kokumo Oladipo Memorial Foundation, established to empower the community, the less privileged and indigenes, among others. 
 Its establishment was aimed at ameliorating the living conditions of the indigenes and residents of the state, through economic empowerment projects and provision of healthcare and welfare services to the less privileged.
 At the launch, which took place at Makun High School, Sagamu, community empowerment program was held, where various items were distributed to assist people to start small-scale businesses. Aside this, Christmas party was also held for over 1,000 less privileged Children between the ages of five and 10 years, to experience family love and happiness traditionally associated with the season.
 The event also brought together various families within the communities, providing opportunity for them to interact while having fun with one another.
 The Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Basorun Muyiwa Oladipo, who unveiled the motive behind setting up the Foundation, said it was in remembrance of his late father, Papa Kokumo who died in a fatal motor accident four years after the death of his mother, leaving five of them as orphans at a very tender age, when parental love and guidance were most needed.
 He noted that in spite of the demise of his parents, God stood by him and his siblings throughout the tough time.
 Oladipo, who disclosed that there were lots of less privileged children and orphans who may be going through similar ordeal, enjoined them to take courage, trust only in God and have the determination to succeed irrespective of their challenges, warning them to shun bad influence.
 While shedding more light on the programme, he said; “Parts of activities we put in place include a-get-together Christmas party for more than 1,000 less privileged children between the ages of five and ten years, to give them a sense of belonging, and academic empowerment, among others, to drive them to accomplish their future dream in spite of their lingering parental challenge.
 Oladipo, one of the trustees of the foundation called on others to assist the less privileged in the society, stressing that government alone could not do everything.
