Meet Aisha Abdullahi Adamu, Founder, Director and Humanitarian Leading The Charge At The Child Rights Foundation.


Aisha Abdullahi Adamu serves as a Founder, Director and Humanitarian leading the charge at the Child Rights Foundation (CRF), a non-governmental organisation on a mission to empower women through education, thus creating a brighter and promising future for them.
She continues a legacy founded back in 2000 by Hajiya Khadijah Adamu. Continuing the work of her mother, the mantle was passed onto Aisha to expand the organisation’s impact, ensuring the fulfilment of its mission.

In the last two decades, the Child Rights Foundation (CRF) has established partnerships with global organisations such as UNICEF and the World Health Organization(WHO), achieving remarkable milestones in contributing to reshaping Nigeria’s educational landscape.

Under the leadership of Aisha, CRF has constructed schools and clinics, initiated school feeding programs and addressed multifaceted challenges in disadvantaged communities.

She is the founder of Ivory Conglomerate, which was established in 2013. It initially started as a procurement services venture offering a broad spectrum of luxury and commercial goods and services, but has now expanded into the marketing terrain.

Aisha is also the Executive Director of New Age Group, a company with diversified interests in agriculture, trading and oil & gas. The company has emerged as a market leader in Aquaculture, expanding into poultry and livestock farming alongside mining.

With advanced studies in Global Business at Harvard University, Aisha is multilingual and fluent in English, Arabic, Turkish, and Hausa.

Her professional journey began in 2018 at Microsoft, where she gained invaluable experience and honed her skills, setting the stage for subsequent accomplishments.

She has recently launched “Aisha Cares”, a series of initiatives targeted at women’s advocacy and empowerment across various ages, sectors and backgrounds. She is currently touring Nigerian universities; holding workshops for female students to equip them with the required tools needed to succeed after graduation.

Under the Aisha Cares Program, comes “The Bridge”, an annual conference where women from all works of life have the opportunity to network, receive professional and personal insights to fulfil their individual and collective responsibilities as women.
