Meet The Founder

Professor Ajesola Majekodunmi, founder of Ajesola Solarin Majekodunmi Foundation (ASMAF) said that the intent of the project is to ensure that future generation of women are well empowered educationally and economically to raise children with better future, particularly the girl-child.

Professor Majekodumi, a Professor of Ophthalmology declared: “I want to be remembered as a woman who had an opportunity at carrying her grown to town to ensure that future generation of women are well empowered educationally and economically and grow up to be nation builders”.

In line with the motto of ASMAF which is “Train a woman and empower mankind Professor Majektum sad ASMAF was founded in recognition of the fact that developing the potential of the girl-child would move the country to greater heights as women carry more responsibilities and more economic viability for development of womanhood

She said she was extremely fulfilled that ASMAF had trained and produced about seventeen (17) graduates in various disciplines who would not have had such oportunities due to various constraints and challenges that would have limited their potentials, adding that “ASMAF is trainig builders and future leaders” in their own rights.
