     ALL DONORS are hereby requested to FIRST get in touch with the orphanage's founder and chief care-giver, Yeye Bola Dare, before sending their donations. Call (+234) 08066000600, 08080996000 to reach her.





The Abuja-based Mother Theresa Children's Home is one of Nigeria's best orphanages. Yet, with only seven years into its existence, it is among the youngest. In quality of service and personal attention to its wards, the orphanage is nearly incomparable with any other. Its founder, Yeye Bolanle Dare - who has the uncommon gift of bonding with every child there as if with her own child - and her retinue of committed staff, treat all the children like princes and princesses.

The environment in its entirety exudes such pleasantness and love, such warmth and compassion, every visitor cannot but get the impression he has walked into one big, closely-integrated family, rather than a house of isolated kids. "This is their home," Yeye Dare emphasizes, "the only home they've ever known. We give them maximum comfort and care and shower love upon each and every one of them so that they can grow up having a kinder and pleasant view of the world."

And even in their tender years here, these kids are subtly taught, not by preachment but by example, to care for and love each other. Thus, it is not uncommon in this extra-ordinary foster home to see a baby - probably a baby abandoned by her own mother - extending her affectionate hands to cater for another and give us all a reason to hope that amidst all the woes in this world tenderness will ultimately prevail.

MTO Begins Construction of Permanent Site

Architectural design of structures to be built on the Mother Theresa Orphanage permanent site.

There will also be a fully-equipped clinic and staff quarters, among other structures aimed at giving the children a sense of belonging and preparing them for a bright future.
    The orphanage, rated as one of Nigeria's best, is seeking donations from well-meaning persons and groups around the world to enable it undertake the task of constructing the above structures. Cash and material donations will be acknowledged by the management of the orphanage.

The National Chairman of Nigeria's ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, accompanied by party stalwarts, thought it wise to celebrate the one-year anniversary of his election as party chairman with a visit to Nigeria's abandoned children for whom Mother Theresa Orphanage Abuja is a happy home. Here, Alhaji Bamanga, watched by Yeye Bola Dare and others, displays fatherly love towards some babies.
