Executives Initiative is a charitable organization established by a group of young Nigerians dedicated to making a positive impact on their environment. Its mission is to implement strategic objectives that work to eradicate poverty in Nigeria with the inner-city slums of Lagos as a focal point. This is achieved by organizing community outreach programs, skills acquisition classes and provision of aid anywhere necessary. The organization has been dedicated to this goal since 2013 with its first projects executed at two well-known orphanages in the Lagos environs. Namely the Bale of mercy at Gbagada, Love Home at Magodo, and Heritage Home at Anthony for two consecutive years. In 2015, we visited the same homes but added two more; Modupe Cole and the Makoko Community. Our previous projects reveal that with each year as the scope of the initiative widened, the number of volunteers also increased. From about 9 volunteers in 2013 to over 100 volunteers in 2016 to 165 volunteers in 2017. Each year has seen the project succeed and the The progress is glaring and another indicative factor propelling our zeal to do more is that we received lots of items for the kids and communities which made the Charity 2016 a huge success. Executives Initiative has a team of committed individuals who are passionate about poverty eradication in Nigeria. It also has a strong support base of over two hundred (200) volunteers and affiliate organizations.

Kindness is not a feeling but an act. Show it o your friends and enemies too.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
