Founder, Building Nations Initiative (BNI)
John Oluwadero has eight year’s experience working with children, young people and their families. He leads Building Nations Initiative (BNI), a youth work and community development organization in Nigeria. As the founder of BNI, he harnessed his leadership, community organising and resource mobilization skills to establish a community youth centre at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. The centre provides for children and young people to equitably access healthy relationships, skills building, lifelong learning, and youth friendly services that would positively empower them for life. BNI also operates outreach youth centres in three cities in South West Nigeria. Through various centre-based programs and out-of centre projects operated by BNI, John has led a team of young volunteers to directly impact over 24600 children, young people and their families in six communities.
