It all began in March 2018, when a group of passionate, well-travelled Nigerians came together to brainstorm on the best way to alleviate and ultimately eradicate poverty in Nigeria.
These group of friends, Lookman M. Afolayan, Bala I. Dahiru, Kenneth Ndukuba, Bukola Olusanya, Ayo Ojo, Aliu Tukuru & Stephen Opeyemi, though from diverse background and very successful in their chosen fields felt so strongly connected by their passion for the empowerment of Nigerians in particular.

The high level of poverty in Nigeria was a huge concern to them, knowing it is impossible to help everyone,so these Great Nationalist felt the urgent need to contribute their own support in ways they can.

That was how BUKA PEOPLE FOUNDATION (BPF) was born.
