Reference to the safety of Nigerian Roads
The community safety project is a long term project focused on raising the awareness of the general public to the inherent dangers on and upgrading the safety facilities of the Nigerian roads.

The Peaceful Garden and Road Safety Awareness

In 2002, The Aart Of Life Foundation Installed traffic lights at the blind spot of Sobo Arobiodu/ Isaac John Street Intersection at GRA Ikeja.and also Installed road safety billboards and slogans by the traffic lights to raise awareness of the general public to the inherent dangers on Nigerian roads.

On December 3rd 2003, (what would have been Abioye Aronke Taiwo’s 26th birthday), the Aart of Life Foundation dedicated The Peaceful Garden, which had been lovingly created by Taiwo Taiwo, Bioye’s mother.

The Peaceful Garden’ captures the ‘Spirit of Aart’, and it’s mission of promoting and advancing the virtue of love, kindness, compassion, charity, beauty and sensitivity amongst all Nigerians, and especially Bioye’s generation.

The Peaceful Garden had been lovingly created for the community and residents of GRA Ikeja, and members of the community of GRA Ikeja have embraced this special gift, and taken ownership of it.

AART OF LIFE SYMPOSIUM; Setting An Agenda For The Future

Our pioneering initiative, the first in Nigeria, has championed Grief and trauma counseling and support since the inception of the Aart of life foundation in 2002, about thirteen years ago.

This ground breaking work has become even more significant now with the increasing terror attacks in the Country, and the consequences… heavy mortality and morbidity and the increasing number of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the country.

It has become imperative that we create a rallying point for all stake holders and to set an agenda for rapid and effective interventions for the grieving and traumatized victims and their families and to celebrate and share our experiences of the last 13 years in our groundbreaking work in grief and trauma counseling, the Aart of life foundation is organizing a one day symposium “Developing a frame work for disaster Management in Africa; the Nairobi experience and the Nigeria Challenge”.
