Tolu reveals motivation behind Generous Me project

The charity organization aims to be the go-to partner for material donations from across Nigeria while also addressing the economic needs of the less-privileged.

Speaking about why she started the organization, Ms Alade said:

“I used to clear out my closet at least once a year and start thinking of what to do with the items. Sometimes, my family would package these items to donate to an orphanage or other people in need around us but the time to get these items across was a bother at times.
"Over time, I realized it wasn't just me that experienced this and that was how GenerousMe started - to make giving easier for donors and create a system for distributing donated items to people in need. We are focused on helping people declutter their wardrobes/closets and getting these items across to people who need them.”
