Meet Tosin Adesina: Lending A Helping Hand To Less Privileged



BY ANTHONY ADA ABRAHAM
Mr. Tosin Joseph Adesina currently works with Access Bank plc and he is the Country Director and Founder of Save Young Talent Foundation, a charitable organization. He hails from Oyo State in Nigeria and  grew with a deeply rooted compassion to bring comfort to as many people as possible. His belief is that God blesses people so that they can be blessings to humanity and not enjoy life selfishly.

With his academic background in International Relations, he has volunteered and worked at  different organizations to advance children's rights, to improve access and quality of basic education, and to help make governments more open and accountable to their citizens

Basically his life experience ever since he was a kid, he has always thought about doing something for humanity but he never knew how it would be like at first because there is this passion in him that seeks to touch a life positively.

Five  years ago, he was in a rural community volunteering for a project put together by Hanovia in the field of health. He saw a lot of children on the street who were faced with several forms of sicknesses and diseases due to malnutrition. The suffering of children is one of the most difficult things to witness, he says, "especially vulnerable to the effects of poverty and conflict, children are the hardest hit when faced with challenges that even adults would find difficult to cope with". 
According to him,one day, he saw some young children on the streets displaying some unique skills. 'I stopped to watch them; it beeps me in my mind. The word Save, Save, Save kept on reflecting in my thought''. Then his strong passion of creating a platform that seeks to promote, nurture, develop this young minds was given birth to right there.And the God-given ministry of “bringing joy to humanity” has been on since May of same 2018, when Nigeria’s Corporate Affairs Commission certified Save Young Talent Foundation for operations as a not for profit Non-Governmental Organization. The Foundation has helped hundreds of children’s in the fight for hunger, talent building and creating a safe haven for them and given education to many less privileged people. To name but a few projects have successfully initiated, Rise Up Orphans Talent Show, Back to School project, Girl Child Education, Kaduna Orphans Talent Summer Camp, Feed the sick Children outreach, Valentine's Fun fair for orphans, Christmas outreach, Ramadan outreach and many more.
