With efforts focused on assisting young people, associated institutions and community organisations, the foundation has been positioned to contribute to the long-term progress of Kwara State.
Salman Shagaya Foundation has consistently empowered so many youths in Kwara State, supported thousands of petty business owners with the non-refundable credit facility, given widows a new lease to life, and made life worth living for the elderly in the society.
The latest community intervention programme of the Salman Shagaya Foundation is the “4,000 Homes Solar Project”. Through this project, a lot of homes which had hitherto lost the hope of getting a stable power supply has been lightened up.
The solar project which was executed across the 16 Local Government Areas of Kwara State has earned Sheriff Shagaya the name “Sheriff Imole”. This is because he provided light amidst darkness and the gesture will forever be remembered.
The consistency of the humanitarian exploits of the Salman Shagaya Foundation is a testament to the humane nature of Alhaji Sheriff Shagaya.
May God bless Sheriff Shagaya and give him the strength to break new grounds.
