Leaving NO ONE OUT…Leaving NO CHILD BEHIND™
Enlightenment is Superior to Enforcement™
1. WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND?
We are Barristers and Solicitors of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, whose core areas of practice in the last 20 years have been Social Development and Child Rights and Responsibilities, Care and Protection, Childhood Preservation and Family Strengthening, and working with local and international organizations as researchers, facilitators and consultants like UNICEF, the British Council, UNFPA, SOS Children Villages International, Federal and Lagos, Oyo, Ogun, Osun, Ekiti, Edo, and Delta States Governments, just to mention a few. Law and its social impact on society is critical and foundational to our solutions and our qualification as legal practitioners empowers us to effectively operate in these area?
2. ARE YOU REGISTERED TO TRAIN, ISSUE CERTIFICATE AND CERTIFICATIONS?
Taiwo AKINLAMI Academy is registered with CAC with RC Number 999162 with the following leading objectives, ‘to run an academy as a social enterprise, which provides services in the area of empowerment and enlightenment on the protection and safety of children, law and entrepreneurship, general legal enlightenment, personal and corporate social responsibilities to individuals, families, local and international organizations in the private and public sectors through consulting, short-term and long-term certificate and non-certificate training programs, certifications, conferences and legal representation before and outside the courts of law.
3. WHAT IS YOUR OVERALL SOCIAL BACKGROUND AND PROOF OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF YOUR SOLUTIONS? Taiwo AKINLAMI’s divinely-guided and courageous journey from the seemingly insurmountable impact of truncated CHILDHOOD (marked with untold and bizarre forms of abuses, both from the hands of his primary and secondary caregivers) to transformed adulthood began in February 16, 1997, when he had an unforgettable encounter with God.
It is instructive to note that the principles of our Child Rights and Responsibilities, Care and Protection, Childhood Preservation and Family Strengthening solutions, being disseminated today on the many platforms of our Social Empowerment Advocacy™ (SEA) flow from Taiwo AKINLAMI’s personal discoveries as he sought total healing from the seemingly insurmountable impact of his truncated CHILDHOOD.
The efficacy of the Taiwo AKINLAMI’s discovered principles were first established for us by his healing experiences before they became subjects of further research efforts to find solutions, which directly speaks to the Third World, considering the fact that his experiences are situated within the Third World and are borne out of our peculiarities as peoples of a developing African continent.
We recognise that in matters of Child Rights and Responsibilities, Care and Protection, Childhood Preservation and Family Strengthening, principles may be universal by nature, but their effective application must be predicated on the Dominant Value System of the people, which must inform their legal and social frameworks, if the noble goal is to achieve enduring results.
Since 1997, over $500,000(Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) in human and financial investment have been made towards Social Empowerment Research efforts, aimed at further testing the efficacy the principles of Taiwo Akinlami’s personal transformation principles and their relevance to today’s Africans in their quest to provide adequate protection for the precious African Child.
4. ARE YOU CERTIFIED TO TRAIN ON CHILD RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES, CARE AND PROTECTION, CHILDHOOD PRESERVATION AND FAMILY STRENGTHENING?
By the combined implication of paragraphs 1-3 above and most importantly that we are the creator and the intellectual property owner of all of our solutions, under an umbrella name, known as iProtect™, under local and international laws, therefore we are empowered by the law to share and certify interested people to train same solutions.
It is important to note that we are the SOURCE and PIONEER of our solutions in law and indeed and therefore, we are empowered under the law to share same with other interested people and empower them to share with others.
It is important to note that same way the international organizations like John C. Maxwell, Microsoft, FranklinCovey are the intellectual Property owners and pioneers of the solutions on which they certify interested people so Taiwo AKINLAMI Academy owns the intellectual property to her solutions and disseminate same to individuals, local and international organizations and governments as we have done since 1997.
Our intellectual rights over our solutions can be likened to that which inventors have over their inventions. In this case, our solutions are SOCIAL INVENTIONS.
5. WHAT IS THE USE OF YOUR CERTIFICATE/CERTIFICATION?

7. WHAT IS YOUR LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL ACCEPTABILITY QUOTIENT?
