I am passionate about providing opportunities. It stems from the frustration of seeing so many honest, hardworking and excellent people in Nigeria go unrewarded. I want to do something to fix that. Effort ought to be compensated. Values should be celebrated. When people work hard, they should not go hungry or feel unfulfilled.

I deeply hate injustice. It is one of the few things that makes me cry. When I see the odds stacked against everyday people who are just trying to survive, it propels me to do something to help.

Legal Aid

Legal aid costs are underwritten for organisations providing representation to women and children. Also, organisations assisting prisoners awaiting trial or serving sentences for non-violent offences.

Hospital Bills

Hospital bills are paid for patients who cannot go home because they are unable to settle outstanding fees.


Advocacy initiatives that focus on progressive policies are supported.


Culture is everything. It affects how a society reasons, behaves and evolves. If you want to understand why a country is progressing or not, look at its strongly held values. If we do not actively engage Nigeria’s endemic cultural underpinnings, we may not move forward.

Tandem [tan-duhm]: "If one thing happens or is done in tandem with another thing, the two things happen at the same time."

Tandem Network is an initiative of the Subomi Plumptre Trust. It is a series of events building bridges between senior executives, entrepreneurs and managers.

As the name suggests, the events leverage the networking power of two complementary groups - Africans and the Diaspora. They also attract individuals who place emphasis on values and not only achievements.

Project 10k provides a grant of 10,000 slots in Subomi Plumptre’s investment course to middle class Nigerians. The in-kind grant is currently valued at N310,000,000 ($800,000).

The goal of the project is to create a critical mass of financially independent citizens who have a history of social or civic contributions.

The expected outcome of the project is 50% of participants attaining a minimum level of financial independence of about 50% in 3 years. Financial independence is a situation where an individual’s return on investment can sufficiently cover their daily expenses. These individuals will be encouraged to pay-it-forward by lifting others in their communities.

Project 10k

Culture Conversation is an ongoing push to elevate positive values on a national scale. Specific areas of intervention include education, media and religion.

The expected outcome is raising a critical mass of individuals who are empowered to build nations that prioritize citizen mobility, progress and well-being.

Unfiltered curates contemporary stories of faith. It provides a bridge for people to meet God, through interactions with real life experiences. Learn More.
