DSC_3350Oyeladeniran Foundation for Community Development (OFCOD). The foundation is established in memory of late Mrs Oyeladun and Mr. Adeniran Awoniyi. Both of them in their own small way contributed to socio-economic development of different people that came in contact with them and communities where they lived while their sojourn on earth lasted. The Foundation aims at re-awakening the socio-cultural heritage of the Adeniran family, Iresi Community as well as that of the Yoruba Nation that made our forebears utilize the values of self-worth to engage in self-help to become self-reliant, self-sustaining and self-sufficient without resorting to fraudulent practices and corruption that seem to control the sensibility of the contemporary people.

We are pleased to welcome you to the first edition of the event planned to, with your support, become Annual Iresi Socio-Cultural and Economic Festival.
This first edition of the Festival is being staged to launch the facilitating Foundation – the Oyeladeniran Foundation for Community Development (OFCOD). The foundation is being established in memory of late Mrs Oyeladun and Mr. Adeniran Awoniyi.

Culture is second nature to man. Man is as much a product of nature as he is a by-product of culture. The sociological components of any given society represent her cultural identity, defines her economic and political direction which effectively determines society’s progress, stagnation or retrogression. Culture, I believe, is the sociological DNA of a given people sacredly natural to them.

Cultural anthropologists posit that the culture of a people is in tandem with their historical development and not necessarily inferior to any other culture. Your behavior suits your culture and nobody has a right to criticize your way of life just because it is different from his own culture. It is a bigger tragedy where a person is ashamed of his/her culture because he/she suffers from a complicated complex of inferiority to another culture. A loss of culture is a loss of identity which has the immutable potential to scuttle the natural course of socio-economic development.
