About THE OLUSOLA ADEKOYA FOUNDATION (OAF)...Making the Best of Your Potential
The Olusola Adekoya Foundation (OAF) was founded as an engine to support humanity and promote creativity in young minds, as well as challenge Nigerian citizens to become more involved in investing in social development and helping to create a better, more self-reliant future for the nation.
OAF is an NGO that focuses on empowerment, emancipation, skill acquisition, and creative-driven ideas.
At OAF we design and implement programmes that give financial independence and educational opportunities to people of all ages, with special emphasis on youths and adults.
A journey that started on the 19th of Feb. 2020 with three (3) technical students has developed into a network of almost a thousand hands in view today.
About THE FOUNDER
Mr OLUSOLA ADEKOYA, widely referred to as “Shodex” by his teeming admirers, was born some fifty-something years ago.
He started the journey to landscaping world 32 years ago and worked assiduously and tirelessly to transform it to a limited liability company; Shodex Beautification Landmark Limited, now a frontrunner in the landscaping business with 45 permanent employees. Not only this, he is privileged to have trained over 200 individuals in landscaping skills acquisition.
As a visionary landscaper, he single-handedly transformed a derelict area that was used as hideouts by hoodlums, social miscreants, and hemp smokers into an oasis of green without any self-imposed scepticism about his capabilities. This very beautiful garden is now a toast of all.
Shodex Gardens has for over a decade now, occupied a pride of place in Lagos as a reputable Park and Tourist Centre.
Olusola Adekoya has contributed greatly to the growth and development of Lagos through his Landscaping revolution. This is manifested in the social, educational and economic aspects of the state.
Mr Adekoya, who is now a legend in the landscaping profession, is widely travelled, in his quest to continuously broaden his knowledge and expertise. He has successfully executed several mega landscape projects.
