Her love for helping the needy has been inherent since childhood as she  has always been naturally drawn to visiting orphanages and helping those in need around her. Back in her university days, she always spotted those who were hungry or in need and helped them in whatever way she could. She did not see what she was doing then as a call on her life, but kept on giving and helping.However, in 1997, Mrs Nike Adeyemi became increasingly concerned about seeing commercial sex workers on the streets, especially in her neighbourhood – Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos. She did not understand why the ladies would waste their lives engaging in this activity. Following the leading of the Holy Spirit and with a strong desire to reach out, she started talking to them about a better way of life until she became their confidant and friend.  The more she talked with them and heard their stories, the more love and compassion developed in her heart for them. The RWF was birthed out of a passion to help transform the girls’ lives. Nike Adeyemi’s vision was to have a place (a home or hostel) where the ladies would live since she realised that many of them engaged in this trade because they came from dysfunctional families (Psalm 68:13). Nike believed they needed a family setting where they would be loved, nurtured, offered opportunities for education and progress so they could achieve their dreams and ultimately become re-integrated into the society as positive contributors
