This month, as part of our Women Leader’s series we want to focus on Philanthropy.
With a population of over 200 million people, and increasing levels of economic and social disparities, there’s plenty for philanthropists to do, particularly in the way of women’s causes, fighting poverty, education, healthcare etc.
Philanthropy is about generosity in all its forms, giving gifts of “time, talent and treasure” to help make life better for other people.
Global philanthropy has been distinctly male dominated, however, the trend has been changing across the world including in Africa. Women like Princess R.U. Osula Mku- Atu, a Nigerian Entrepreneur and Philanthropist, are joining the Philanthropic space and making an impact.
Princess(Mrs) R.U. Osula Mku- Atu, is one of the growing number of female philanthropist, changing the narrative in Nigeria and internationally. Her foundation’s primary objective is to alleviate human suffering by providing aid, support and opportunities to the poor and less privileged around the world through Education, Empowerment and Humanitarian Services.
During the recent COVID-19 pandemic, Rosula foundation philanthropic activities has been felt in Benue, Edo, Ogun, Oyo and Lagos state in Nigeria. These activities were extended into London and Glasgow in the United Kingdom too. Where many lives have been positively impacted, every day, across Nigeria there are feedbacks, as many people thank Rosula Foundation for her benevolence and generosity.
The Rosula foundation provides business grants, scholarships. According to Princess Rosemary, “at Rosula Foundation we work to alleviate human suffering by providing aid, support and opportunities to the poor and less privileged Nigerians around the world through education, empowerment and humanitarian services.
“At Rosula Foundation, humanity is our own race! Love is the only religion we know”.
