OAB Celebrity Of The Month

My names are Saidat Oluwatuyi (nee Lateef) aka Orente the cheerful giver and I am the founder of Cheerful Givers Incorporated (CGI). I went to primary, secondary and higher institution in Nigeria, I also attended Community College and University (USA). I am married with kids.

Cheerful Givers Incorporated (CGI) was created on Facebook as Be A Cheerful Giver (BACG) on June 6, 2016. CGI was adopted after our registration in USA.

What Inspired CGI

My inspirations behind the creation of CGI have to do with my passionate love for humanity. I strongly believe in the sayings that one man’s trash is another’s treasure and I believe so much in empowerment cos when you teach someone how to fish rather than continue giving the person fish, it paves way for circulation of wealth and happiness.

Like I said before one man’s trash is another’s treasure, going through my wardrobe I see a lot of clothes and shoes that I wore once or twice and a lot of new ones yet to be worn. I go to my friends’ house I see a lot of things that they call trash and I envisaged that it will be useful to someone back home. So I packed everything put them up in a box and send them to Nigeria so it can be put to further use.

I do it then outside Facebook by sending to my family, but since I started collecting from friends, so that I can reach out to more people,  i created a Facebook group which I named Be A Cheerful Giver (BACG), it was changed to Cheerful Givers Incorporated (CGI) after the registration in the USA

What Get Us Going

There are many stories that touched my heart about the works of CGI, is it been able to put food on the tables of many families through our different empowerment programs or visitations to the orphanage homes and hospitals. But the one I will always remember is our visitation to the pediatric ward of cancer patients in LUTH located in mushin, the pains the children are going through is nothing to write home about. There parent’s inability to afford their treatments and discharge, we hope to still reach out to them more often.

Coordination Of CGI

Though I live outside the shores of Nigeria, and we are located on Facebook I have six(6) co-admins and up to 10 coordinators who have been assigned to different zones and States. We have our meetings online and to the glory of God, we are doing great.
Its been God all the way and true dedication. I schedule my time between everything I want to do and to the glory of God, no one affects each other.
