HOUSE ON THE ROCK CHURCH
Barrister Akinlami’s iProtect project provided a lot of information and resources that properly equipped our church group to implement a systems in our children's church department that ensures the safety and protection of our children every Sunday.
It is an extensive and eye-opening training on the many dangers the Nigerian child faces on a daily basis and answers to the basic question of how to ensure that when any of these children are within the four walls of our church, they are protected from such dangers. It also helps create an awareness to children in our personal lives and how to protect same and ensure no harm befalls them.
FATHER'S HOUSE CHURCH
‘I vividly remembered inviting Barrister Taiwo Akinlami to our Annual Conference, popularly known as “PRISCA” as a Special Guest Speaker to speak, educate and enlighten our Parents on the topic: “Parenting the 21st Century Child”. It was an electrifying occasion for the church and we look forward to having Barrister Taiwo Akinlami again and again.'
FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY
‘I applaud what you are doing, and I agree with your perspective on African children…It is probably going to be hard to change such ensconced mentalities just like in my home country of India, it's very hard to change belief patterns because they are embedded in culture and also in religion. BUT – someone has to try. Someone will make progress. It is time. And at the very least, those after us can build on our current work to finally achieve breakthrough. So, our efforts are never wasted – not even a bit.’ #EMEAChildSafetySummit2017.
