A Nigerian real estate mogul and businesswoman, Becky Olubukola, has donated food items to some widows while also awarding scholarships to their children.

The businesswoman has made it a priority to give back to society through her pet project, the Pricasso Care Foundation.

“In our society, and in some cultures, widows get stigmatized and may lose all the properties of their late husbands if they don’t have a male child.

“No one deserves that level of hardship”, Olubukola said, adding that this was the reason she stepped up to help the women get back on their feet by donating food items and giving their children scholarships to enable them to get access to quality education.

So far, she has been able to fend for over 1200 widows and 200 widows’ children have been given scholarships through the foundation.

Olubukola also constructed a new market, Erinmo Model Community Market, for the residents of the area.

The market, which is well-equipped, is the first of its kind for the people of Erinmo Ijesha, Osun State.

At the ceremony where she handed over the key to the market, she said: “We can’t all act as if everything is alright and everyone is fine.

“People are struggling, although, most people don’t look like they struggle. However, everyone has a lot going on for them and it is our chartered responsibility to look out for one another.”

Olubukola, a Nigerian Business mogul, is the Managing Director and CEO of BSTAN Group.

She is ranked by City People as one of the top 10 real estate developers in Nigeria.
