Safekids Consult

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” as the saying goes, Safekids Consult emerges from Adejumoke Sangolana’s professional expertise and childhood passion for children’s welfare.

What began as an idea for a children’s safety book two years ago has evolved into a comprehensive outreach.

Our goal is to equip all caregivers with the necessary safety knowledge to safeguard the children under their care.

On the 24th of February 2024, the maiden edition of this noble initiative was held at Meiran, a Lagos suburb.

The event had over 80 persons in attendance, majorly parents and staff of schools within the community.

The event featured professionals in the field of safety who took the participants through learning sessions in fire safety for schools; First aid administration and Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) for children, after which parents and staff took turns in practising the newly learnt skills.

The learning sessions concluded with a legal session on child rights with a focus on the responsibilities of child handlers and the society at large to protect children.

Furthermore, schools that participated were given free books to equip their school libraries. Over 100 copies of the book, “Sam learns safety” were donated, courtesy our sponsors – The Trusted Advisors and Nobadore Enterprises.

The excited children participated in a friendly quiz and other prizes were given to appreciate the children.

The elated Heads of School expressed their profound appreciation to Safe Kids Consult and the Convener, Mrs. Adejumoke Sangolana.

According to them, the event showcases responsible citizenship and also serves as a gentle reminder to the government on the expectations of the people regarding the much needed support for those in the childcare industry to ensure the protection and wellbeing of the children, in order to preserve the future of the nation.
