“Make a Gift To FLED”
(Feb. 1- Oct. 31, 2022)
To celebrate 27 Years of Impactful Service!
April 05 -30, 2022
In the Beginning
The mandate to start Foundation for Leadership & Education Development – FLED – was received from the Lord by Joseph Chinenyeze Ibekwe on February 17, 1995 while working as a journalist with the Daily Times in Lagos. The instruction that empowered this mandate says” Go raise the foundations of many generations and those that come from thee shall build the old waste places”.
Fired up by that instruction, without fully understanding the enormity or the details of the assignment, Joseph immediately went to operationalize the mandate. Exactly sixty days after, the mandate was officially inaugurated at a public event held on April 17, 1995 being an Easter Monday, at the Nigerian Educational Research & Development Council Conference Hall, in Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos.
More than 70 percent of those that attended the inaugural event were members of the Household of God Church, particularly those from the Outreach Department, where Joseph was a volunteer member at the time.
After resigning his job at the Daily Times in October 1997, Joseph Ibekwe and his team have been committed this mandate. It’s been a long and challenging journey along the winding road in pursuit of destiny assignment.
The intriguing thing about FLED is that in her 27 years of operations, it has not depended on Foreign grants to carry out its work, unlike other NGOs. Support has come from within Nigeria. And we are thankful!
FLED is established to Raise Leaders. That is what we have devoted ourselves to doing in the past 27 years.
That is the reason we say
