Our Brief History
The Paroche Reach-Out Foundation was established in loving memory of Taiwo Oluseyi Adebayo (a.k.a. Paroche), who died on August 20, 2012 as a consequence of injuries received when he was knocked down by a drunk motorist in a hit-and-run accident. On June 6, 1986, he was born with his twin brother.
Paroche was well-known for his deeds of generosity, love, sacrifice, and concern. He was known for his ever-forgiving disposition (he never held grudges) and concern for the underprivileged.
He earned a B. Sc. in Political Science from Babcock University. He was a highly innovative person who was always willing to help those in need. He also inspired many young people to become entrepreneurs.
To that aim, the Paroche Reach-Out Foundation was established to build on and solidify the values of Taiwo; to advocate against drug use/abuse/addiction; and to bring about the desired and unparalleled post-rehabilitation care for persons suffering from any sort of addiction.
Our vision is to eliminate substance abuse in society and create an environment free of social vices.
