Director’s Message

There are many gaps in different sectors of our society and of the four focal areas CSRF supports, we note especially that the biggest gaps are in the Health and Education sectors.

It is our desire to make positive changes in our community by contributing to the saving of lives while it is within our capacity to do so. This we intend to do by providing necessary support in various ways to ensure lives are saved as much as possible.

It is our goal also to provide much needed support in the Education sector by upgrading run-down facilities and donating to worthy causes that will directly impact lives of Nigerians in general.

In order to be able to achieve our set goals, we will not be able to handle it all alone and would require internal and external support of Corporate Organizations, NGOs, individuals and others who by partnering with us and making donations to the organization can help us achieve our goals.

Custodian CSR Projects

Groundbreaking Ceremony of the Custodian Accident and Emergency Centre

Custodian achieved a major milestone in healthcare provision with a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of an accident and emergency center at the General Hospital in Epe, Lagos.

The center, upon completion, will be a cutting-edge medical facility that provides comprehensive healthcare services to trauma and accident victims, as well as other medical emergencies.

Speaking at the event in Lagos, the Managing Director of Custodian Investment Plc, Wole Oshin, emphasized the company’s commitment to health as a significant pillar of the foundation. He said the decision to undertake the project was driven by the desire to support the government’s efforts in the healthcare sector and reiterated the dedication of the Custodian Group to delivering a world-class medical facility.

Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, underscored the importance of the collaboration between the Custodian Group and the state government.


2022 Custodian Mentors Conference

We appreciate that the youths are the future of the nation, and the Custodian Mentors Conference has always been another avenue for the company to give back to the society by encouraging the youths. Since the inception of the conference in 2018, the annual event has continued to attract individuals across different age groups. The 2022 conference being the fourth edition, had over 650 people register but about 100 people were shortlisted to attend the event physically whilst 40 people viewed live via YouTube

The Mentors at the event included Mr. Fela Durotoye, the Founder and CEO Gemstone Group, Mr. Kola Oyeneyin, Founder of Venia Group/Director Volition Capital and Ms Kate Henshaw, an Award Winning Actress and Social Media Influencer. The Mentees were able to ask questions and engage the Mentors after the conference for advice that would impact them hopefully for life. Our plan is to follow up with each of the Mentees of the 2022 class as well as previous editions and assign each to Mentors for continuous guidance.


Renovation of toilets at Wesley Girls Secondary School, Yaba

As part of our commitment to developing of our immediate community, the CGTP Batch A of 2022, through the CSRF renovated 2 blocks of the school toilets. The intervention which included the replacement of worn-out sanitary wares, taps, tiles, doors, painting and restoration of water supply to both toilet blocks brought improved hygiene and was greatly appreciated by both leaners and staff members of the institution.


Renovation of a block of two classrooms at Our Lady of Apostle Nursery and Primary School, Yaba

The CGTP Batch B of 2022 embarked on a CSR project of renovating and painting a block of 2 classrooms at the school. Prior to this renovation, the classrooms had been left in their dilapidated state in which the roof was worn out and damaged, the walls week and dirty and the classes abandoned. This gesture was greatly appreciated by the school and the classrooms commissioned for use with the CGTP class.


Rehabilitation of the section of Commercial Avenue Sabo Yaba Lagos

Custodian Social Responsibility Foundation (CSRF) rehabilitated and commissioned Chapel Street Road at Sabo, Yaba, Lagos. The road rehabilitation project took place in the first quarter of 2021, which focused on revamping the road with interlocking bricks, rebuilding of damaged drainages, construction of road pavements and the installation of streetlamps.

The project was officially handed over to the Lagos State Government on Thursday, March 11, 2021. The handover event was attended by the Governor of Lagos, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu (represented by his Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Aramide Adeoye), Hon.

2021 Custodian Mentors Conference

The idea of the Mentors Conference came about as a realization that many of the youths in our society are discouraged, jobless, hopeless, and often without focus. The series which began in 2018 and held in 2019 was not held in 2020 as a result of the Covid- 19 pandemic. Though the pandemic was still raging in 2021, it had somewhat subsided, so it was decided to host if but in a subdued way to accommodate the Government-imposed social distancing protocols. We reached out to interested candidates and as of the close of registration, 673 candidates had registered. Different methods were employed to select 100 candidates from the number, out of which 87 attended the ceremony.

The Mentors this time included Mr. Leke Alder, the Founder and Principal of Alder Consulting, Mr. Bankole Wellington, Founder of Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) and Ms Funke Bucknor-Obruthe, the Founder of Zapphaire Events. The free conference enabled the three Mentors to share about growing up, entrepreneurship, their faith and the values they held dear that made them successful. The Mentees were able to ask questions and engage the Mentors after the conference for advice that would impact them hopefully for life. Our plan is to follow each of the Mentees of the 2021 class as well as previous editions and assign each to Mentors for continuous guidance.


Cleaning of Area ‘C’ Police Command Building

We are always taking up opportunities we find to help our local community, and, in that spirit, it was decided we should help those who provide security for our environment.

The building of the Ojuelegba Surulere-based Area C Command was unkempt and needed a good wash to make it more recognizable. CSRF therefore engaged the services of professionals to clean the external mosaic, file glasses, windows and frames and remove loose debris on the tiles.

Custodian Press release

The Vocational and Professional Development Academy

Custodian Social Responsibility Foundation (CSRF) is happy to have sponsored the setting up of the Vocational Professional Development Academy opened on 14th December 2017.

It is a statement of fact today that there is an acute shortage of well-trained artisans in our country – you struggle to find really good electricians, plumbers and other good hands.

That is why we chose to support the setting up of the VPDA and it is hoped that the existing gaps in the vocational education sector would be addressed. In time, graduates of the VPDA would impact positively on the environment by providing the much-needed skills.

Eventually, our Country’s economic fortunes would be better while a lot of currently unemployed youths will be gainfully employed, leading to a safer society.
