Brief History of Wholistic Outreach
The Wholistic Outreach, a faith based non-profit making agency of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG) was founded in April 2002 by the President Pastor Mrs Foluke Adeboye, to offer social services and promote youth and women development both within and outside the church (RCCG).
The birth of the vision is traceable to the moral decadence in our society, reflecting in the hordes of commercial sex workers, increase in numbers of pregnant and stranded teenagers, neglected young girls and ladies in various stages of destitution who are all suffering from the effect of this decadence. The Organization is currently active and effective in the work of social reformation and community development.
