Foundation Rebrand in Memory of the Founders

As part of efforts to memorialize and advance the legacy of the founder and the co-founder of Wilson & Yinka Badejo Foundation (WYBF), Rev. Dr. Wilson & Rev. Mrs. Yinka Badejo, the Board of Trustees (BOT) has resolved to rename and announce that the foundation’s annual lecture event will now be known as the Wilson & Yinka Badejo Memorial Lecture.

The annual lecture series commenced in 2008 and has remained as the foundation’s annual flagship event. The rename to the Wilson & Yinka Memorial Lecture in memory of the founders will continue to serve as a platform for thought-provoking discussions, inspiring speakers, and meaningful dialogue on complex social and economic issues that have the potential to drive positive change within our society. 

This renaming ultimately serves as a fitting and lasting tribute to the vision, dedication, and tireless efforts of Wilson and Yinka Badejo, who laid the foundation for the organization’s impactful work. Their lifetime commitment to improving the lives of the less privileged continues to inspire in bringing hope and help to those that need it the most within our society.
