Help for Mankind Initiative (also known as Help Initiative) is a non-governmental organisation based in Ibadan, Oyo state Nigeria.

This we do through our daily, monthly, quarterly and yearly programmes as follows:
TABITHA HOME: this is a care and transitional home for Orphans and Vulnerable children. Tabitha Home was born out of the desire to give home support to orphans and vulnerable children. Beneficiaries of this facility are orphans, abandoned and street children, children from child headed homes and children with other forms of vulnerability. At Tabitha home, we offer the following support in a comfortable and conducive environment: nutrition, shelter, medical care, protection, education and psychosocial support for our children.
