About BSLDI

The NGO was registered on 21st of February, 2020 under the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) with registration Number CAC/IT/ NO. 144586. BSLDI currently has three (3) branches which are situated in Lagos, Delta State and Malawi, southern Africa.

                   The Malawi branch started on the 7th of February and was registered on 8th of June, 2020. The organization was founded as a result of the passion for helping humanity of the initiator. This dream of solving challenges facing humanity is something that has been driving him to look for a solution to the problem of mankind especially in Nigeria where there is abundance of natural resources and untapped potentials deposited in our youths which is now channeled towards nectarous activities and this is bringing bad image and reputation to our country.

                  Hence, he rose to bring alive the Better Standard Living Development Initiative BSLDI to transform, touch lives and change the negative narrative about our nation. He started service for humanity as the pioneering secretary of the Nigerian Association of the Blind, Delta State chapter in 1998. He joined the Ekiti State chapter of this same association.  Samson identified with a lot of NGO’s like the Renewed hope of the Disabled People, REHFODIP, he also started the Better Living foundation of the Disabled BELIFOD while he was an undergraduate student of Mass Communication at the Adekunle Ajasin University.

            Most of the organizations that he is associated with and even the established are focused solely on persons with disabilities. He identified other programs that appear to attend to the challenges he has spotted but they could not quench his hunger because of his passion for making humanity live a comfortable and happy life that is what has given birth to the Better Standard Living Development Initiative so that he and his team and all those that believe in this vision can join hands together to make the world a better place.
