Within a few years, the Abuja-based Mother Theresa Children's Home, in terms of the quality of care given its wards, has unarguably become one of Nigeria's best orphanages. 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.

"Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat."

Permanent Site for MTO

Nigeria’s frontline children’s home, Mother Theresa Orphanage Abuja, has got a permanent site. The new site is a 20-plot land at Kaigini, near Kubwa, FCT, Abuja.
   The orphanage's founder, Yeye Bola Dare, said that structures to be built on the land would include a baby-friendly crèche, primary and secondary schools, recreational facilities, hostels, kitchen and dining facilities. 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.
