Temidayo Ogan Child Safety and Support (TOCSS) Foundation was founded in 2005 as a network of individuals who were passionate about national development and youth empowerment. The group was later registered as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Nigeria; two months after the coordinator of the group had survived a terrible road traffic crash in 2007.
The Foundation’s initial workforce was majorly, committed volunteers, University students on internship programme and youths in the National Youth Service Corps Scheme (NYSC).
The operations of the Foundation started from the residence of the coordinator of the group Temidayo Ogan, who later became the Founder and first Executive Director of the Foundation.
For the purposes of advocacy and trainings, TOCSS Foundation conducted trainings for members on public speaking, child passenger safety and Microsoft power point. In May 2007, TOCSS Foundation hosted the “First Major Players Forum” to review the Road Safety Management System in Nigeria, especially the inattention to children and other vulnerable road users. The forum launched the first free training on Child Passenger Safety (CPSET) for school bus drivers, school bus managers, health education teachersand ante-natal clinics in Nigeria.
Also in 2007, TOCSS Foundation organized the very first Annual Road Safety Walk/Road Show in Nigeria; an effort to promote road safety management in Nigeria and to share road safety advice.
Two months after the road safety walk, TOCSS Foundation rented a workplace at the Central Business District (CBD) Alausa-Ikeja in Lagos State. As our commitments and scope of work have increased; TOCSS Foundation is currently in a facility that accommodates majority of her in-company activities like trainings and workshops.
