A.K.A. THE GRACED NETWORK
Who we are
TAM is a Youth and Women focused faith based organization with the mandate to restore hope, enkindle transformation and raise a new generation of passionate people who will establish God's purpose and engineer positive changes in every facet of life through the various expressions/arms of the ministry. TAM (a.k.a The Graced Network International) started as Jesus League (an interdenominational children and teenagers ministry) in 2010, and the name changed to The Graced Network in 2018 with the specific instruction to go after the “broken”. Hence our slogan “Transforming lives, Raisin Warriors”. This work of Grace which started then in Oyo Town had “the broken” youths and women as our primary audience. We have since remained focused on the match ever since!
We’ve worked on improving the lives of over 10,000 women and young people through ministrations, programs, rehabilitation, support and empowerment.
The vision for Charis Program was launched in 2013 after Founder and President, Tinu Akinlawon worked as a volunteer at a rehabilitation facility for 3 months. She realized that true transformation will never come through imparting head knowledge only but through a heart work by the Holy Spirit!
Tinu started Charis Program as a counseling/Drop in center at Shalom House Joyce B, Ibadan. Charis program helps young women and men ages 12-32 break free from life controlling issues and situations, including anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, eating disorders, self harm, addictions, unplanned pregnancy, and sex trafficking.
Over the years, Charis has expanded its residential location to Oshogbo with future plans to build residential homes in Oyo, Ilorin, Ado-Ekiti, Abuja and Ondo States.
Our numbers speak
As at April 2022, we have 2 shelters in Ibadan & Oshogbo, with shelters in Abeokuta and Ado Ekiti opening formally in few weeks.
