The Rose of Sharon Foundation (ROSF) is a private, voluntary, non-profit, faith based, non-governmental Organisation based in Lagos state, Nigeria.  Our mission statement includes easing the burdens of existence for widows and orphans, which we do through our community network amongst others.

The foundation was formally launched with the special grace of God on the 23rd of May 2008 at the Grand hall of the Eko hotels and suites.  Over 350 distinguished ladies and gentlemen drawn from various sectors of our society attended the event and pledged their support to our projects.

    I am a Nigerian presently living in the U.S. and looking for a non-profit organization in Nigeria to partner with and volunteer my skills and services. I feel we have an abundant supply of Nigerians living abroad that they could afford to donate their expertise and skills to build their homeland, and what a place to start than with the women and children who are the backbone, and future of the country. I can be reached through email at

    Best regards,

    May the Lord continue to be your helper in this foundation. Want your organisation to help a woman and her children who plan to return back to Nigeria from one of the european countries that has problem. Though the husband is not dead but he left the woman and the children many years ago and even point it out openly that he has nothing to do again with the woman because he has another lady in his life. This happened abroad and at the crucial time when the woman needs the man support financially and morally, the woman has fibroid. Now their country of abode is in serious economic breakdown, people including this woman are facing serious problem, no work and no way out for many years now. The woman now plan to move back to Nigeria with her children but she needs money for their airflight tickets and also some capital to start a business when she gets to Nigeria, she has a place she can stay in Lagos. Please help this woman out just to save her soul because she’s been diagonised of hypertension due to too much thinking and frustration.
    You can contact me through my email address or my phone number 0030 6980539209, so that i can link you with the woman. May the good Lord continue to be your helper in Jesus name.

  13. Congratulations and well done on your great achievements in uplifting poor Nigerian widows and their children. I am very proud of your humanitarn projects. As a widow my self l fully understand the. agonies and the need to support poor widows and their children The Nigerian government should abolish all barbaric cultural practices that disempower and punish. Innocent widows at a difficult time that they are so vulnerable and traumatised .there should be laws effectively to protect widows and heir children from all sort of abuses and greedy relatives who often inflict harm on bereaved widows. I will like to voluntarily contribute my professional services as a British trained social worker of Nigerian origin . God bless.
