Living Word Mission (registered as La Vie Mot Global Mission), acronymned LIWOM, is a Faith-Based, Non-Governmental, and Non-Profit Organisation founded by Pastor Marcus Williams in 1996 to respond to the need of providing an environment where children can achieve their dreams irrespective of culture, tribe, complexion, religion or family background.
For several years now, the organisation has held-up her part and strongly advocates for the Rights of the child, and household resilience. This is because in LIWOM, we believe every child is winner and has the right to be treated as one.
LIWOM is duly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission [CAC], Ministry of Women Affairs, Association of Orphan and Vulnerable Children NGOs in Nigeria [AONN], Association of Homes and Orphanages’ Operators in Nigeria [ASOHON], and many other partnering entities and agencies.
With synergy and funding, LIWOM has provided several services to over 15,000 less-privileged children and over 4200 caregivers in both Oyo and Lagos states with interventions encompassing education, HIV Testing Services, Linkage to care, Household Economic Strengthening, Child & Legal Protection, Food security, among others.
LIWOM continues to contribute to the community via interventions to the less-privileged and capacity strengthening to Government agencies and other NGOs.
“Secured future for every child in Nigeria”
“Holistic outreach to families in urban and rural communities for the total development of the child”
The dream of one man became the passion of many.
Living Word Mission began in 1996 as a Missionary entity
with the focus to:
At this time, families and children were reached via rural evangelism to communities such as Ayegun [a border town in Oyo State], Moshi, and other rural communities in Oyo and Kwarra states.
Children had access to primary [basic] education at no cost in these communities.
As time passed, parents and caregivers of some of these children demanded that they [their children] stay with these missionaries from where they can:
Some of them, via consent from their parents, were moved to Ibadan – LIWOM’s headquarters- to advance their studies into secondary schools.
This decision resulted in the organisation establishing and managing a shelter facility now known as LIWOM Mission Home.
The number sprung up geometrically over the years as children from several communities were brought to the facilities. Some of these children were referred to LIWOM by the Nigerian Police and the Child Welfare Department of the State Ministry of Women Affairs.
These children were brought on several grounds as stated below:
In 2015, LIWOM expanded her base to Lagos where we implemented iCARE project funded by APIN Public Health Initiatives. Then in 2018, we expanded to two more states – Ekiti and Ondo – to implement projects on HIV Testing Services, whilst Lagos and Oyo State secured OVC projects as addition.
Currently, LIWOM operates in three states with only Lagos and Oyo States implementing both OVC and HTS programmes, Ekiti implements only the HTS programmes.
In time past, the organisation has implemented community OVC programmes in Oke-ado communities of Oyo States funded by Hope World Wide Nigeria [HWWN]. Also, as an AONN member organisation, Living Word Mission successfully implemented intervention programmes to orphans and Vulnerable children in Oyo State under the Global Fund Project.
LIWOM has become a household name in most communities as a result of strategic interventios and humanitarian services to children and families.
