We believe that we are not keepers of wealth, but a channel through which the love of Christ can flow to all the nations of the earth.
We believe that every life has equal value and believe that no child, especially those suffering from disabilities, should live a low quality of life especially as a result of social marginalization.
We believe that the education of the African people will create a ripple effect that would change the economic situation of Africa.
We believe that every youth has the ability to develop into strong leaders with strength of character and a community development mind-set with a Christ-centered worldview.
The David Oyedepo Foundation is a Christian non-profit organization that is committed to showing the love of Christ to the world by developing platforms that would bring about change to the economy of Africa as a continent and by ripple effect, the rest of the world.
We as an organization, are committed to revealing the love of Jesus Christ to the world through our programs and in everything we do. Our actions are born out of a strong love and passion towards the development of the African continent from being predominantly ‘third-world’ to being a world power. We believe that we as citizens must take personal responsibility for the changes we want to see in our various nations, and the continent at large.
