Pro Labore Dei is a Charitable Organization that is committed to working with the very poor, the destitute in our society for their improvement.
Our objective is to feed the hungry, cloth the naked, shelter the homeless, nurse/treat the sick poor and the aged deserted by relatives, to visit the imprisoned, be mothers to the orphaned and the abandoned children, educate the young poor whose parents cannot…
Pro Labore Dei was founded on 16th May 1990 in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State of Nigeria.
It began as a reponse to God’s call to Sister Stella- Maris Okonkwo to “Go out into the streets and slum areas where people are suffering and look after the poor”. She began the work with a few destitute in the Bere area of Ibadan with only a few Naira in her pocket.
Our mission is to work, guided by his Divine Majesty, to redeem His people from destitution. With this in mind, we consciously strive not to rob the client of whatever little dignity he has left and we avoid publicity. Clients’ histories are treated as confidential. On no account should clients’ data or persons be covered by media publications. Our business is to restore again their lost dignity and self-esteem, another aspect of clothing. This clothing is to reflect on all areas of the apostolate, for in this is the actualization of our goal.
Education is an important venture in the life of any child, the community and the nation. This makes it important for every child to be educated and underlines the great need for Pro Labore Dei Schools Worldwide.
By educating the destitute child Pro Labore Dei Schools have brought hope to those who would otherwise be hopeless and a future to those who once had none.These nursery / primary schools have produced graduates of higher institution today. Some graduates of the nursery / primary school of ‘Pro Labore Dei’ are in various secondary schools – a clear manifestation of the fact that all human being are born equal. You too can make a positive impact on someone directly or indirectly. Together we can make a difference in the world around us.
On behalf of all beneficiaries, thank you in advance for your support.
