VMF, MDCF partner for Children’s Day celebration

The Victor Moore Foundation (VMF), a non-profit championing quality education for underserved communities, joined hands with the Makoko Development Children Foundation (MDCF) to make this year’s Children’s Day an unforgettable experience for over 200 children in Makoko, Lagos.

The programme provided a day of thrilling fun, games and reading competitions. It nurtured a sense of belonging and celebration amongst the children.

VMF played a pivotal role by donating essential school supplies, stationery, and educational materials for the event’s participants.

“Collaboration is the cornerstone of achieving substantial progress in community development. By joining forces, we can leverage our combined resources, expertise, and networks to create a more significant impact and bridge the long-standing gaps that have hindered these communities.”

This collaboration exemplifies VMF’s unwavering commitment to community development and fostering a collective impact. Through their ongoing partnership with the Makoko Development Children Foundation, VMF is actively shaping a brighter future for Makoko’s children and families.

The Makoko Development Children Foundation, a community-driven organisation, operates a support school for orphans and underprivileged children in Makoko, a waterfront settlement in Lagos. They provide free education to children from various homes within the community.

VMF’s partnerships extend beyond Children’s Day celebrations. Driven by a mission to dismantle barriers faced by inner-city communities, the foundation empowers young people across various communities by providing them with the tools and resources needed to thrive.

Ambassador Wheduto Urban January, founder of the Makoko Development Children Foundation, commended VMF’s steadfast vision of supporting children in underserved communities. He emphasised, “Their unwavering support has been instrumental in empowering our children and the entire Makoko community.” His words echoed the organisation’s dedication to empowering the next generation.
