The Nation Newspaper writes story about RSN Founder!

Tosin Taiwo has passion for the less-privileged. This passion once turned her into a beggar and earned her several awards. To live her passion, Taiwo, a Fellow of the Carrington Youth Fellowship, established the Resource Sharing Network (RSN) Foundation, which is touching the lives of youths. Evelyn Osagie, Udemma Chukwuma and Ogechi Njirika report.


The 2012 Fellow of the Carrington Youth Fellowship, Tosin Taiwo, 32, was once passionate about software programming. She had since quit her job for humanitarian causes. Today, she specialises in inspiring and putting smiles of the faces of young Nigerians. And she does it through her foundation, Resource Sharing Network (RSN).

It all began when she went for the national youth service. After working with a software company, her experience during the service year changed her worldview. “Service brought me much closer to the needy. I was particularly moved by the plights of the Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). I saw how twisted …

How Important it is...to know

Trust you are having a good time out there. We appreciate you and would always wish you the best in your endeavors.
These past few days has been exciting as we reach out to more young people without school bags. The first photograph shows the kids in their poor 'makeshift' school bags. While the other photograph captured those lovely faces with brand new school bags donated to them by Resource Sharing Network. Thanks to friends and sponsors~
Thank you for visiting our page, too..:)

"Do you sponsor Muslim kids, too?" She Asked...

...On a regular basis, we do receive requests for Education Sponsorship and Assistance. And, while some of these young people are referred to us, others, we did meet them on the street etc. At present, there is a request from a widowed woman who wants some support for her two boys...and she has visited us three times, already! to submit some 'evidences'! She wants some support for her two sons. Sadly, one of them couldn't write WAEC exams this year after much preparation because she couldn't afford the fee, moreso, because she's got some outstandings/debt to pay up. She wanted to know if we do sponsor Muslim Kids...Of course, we do... we want to impact more lives regardless of the color, race, religion, background. We just want to do more..

Thumbs up to Friends, Donors, Supporters and everyone who has made our efforts worthwhile...#thankYou~

NGO seeks support for less-privileged childrenNovember 2, 2012 by Motunrayo Aboderin. News here..


The Programme Director, Resource Sharing Network, Mrs. Tosin Taiwo, has urged private organisations to take interest in the education of the less- privileged children.
She said that despite the various challenges befalling  the education sector, if everyone strived to make a difference in their own little way, it would create a ripple effect.
Taiwo made this call during  the donation of educational items to pupils of Igbogila Primary School, Ipaja, Lagos State, organised by  the United Parcel Services. She added that a large percentage of  the less-privileged children desire to learn but don’t have the necessary materials for school.
“The aim of today’s event is to promote education and motivate young children to take interest in their education. In this school, Igbogila, there are so many orphans. Most of them don’t have school bags and sandals. These gift items we are givi…
