Tonto Dikeh Feeds 2,000 Children in Ajegunle

The Foundation has been consistent with numerous beneficial outreaches over the years

Nollywood legend and politician, Tonto Dikeh, also known as King Tonto, recently fed about 2,000 children in Ajegunle.
The initiative was organized by The Tonto Dikeh Foundation, established in 2000 with a clear vision and passion for improving the lives of displaced and underprivileged women, girls, youths, and children in Africa, regardless of their political, religious, and cultural differences.
The Foundation has been consistent with numerous beneficial outreaches over the years, including the Tonto Dikeh Foundation Road Construction Project in Karamajiji Colony, Abuja, the Pad a Girl Project, the Back To School Project, the 2020 Pandemic Food Distribution Across 12 States in Nigeria and Ghana, Widows Business Start-up Funds, among many others.
The King Tonto Feeds 2,000 Children Project kicked off in Rumuokuta, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, in June, where over 2,057 children benefitted.
The Lagos edition, recently held in the Ajegunle area, was a success with over 3,729 children in attendance, bringing joy not only to the kids but also to the parents who accompanied them.
Speaking at the event, King Tonto, represented by her project manager, Mr Henry, emphasized the importance of the feeding project, given the current socio-economic hardships in the country.
“The Feed 2,000 Children Project is one that we have planned to take across every state in Nigeria and Africa at large. Given the current economic struggles we are going through in Nigeria at the moment, we decided to lend our little support to every child and encourage parents that all will be well. We aim to keep reaching out in our little way as much as we can,” she said.
She added that Abuja is the next venue, with plans to extend the feeding project to Delta, Ogun, and Kano states soon.
