ESTHER FAGBOLA (SHE/HER)

 Executive Director

Esther created Project Agape with the desire to change the way we see domestic violence and rape. Her inspiration comes from growing up in an environment where she was exposed to domestic violence. She has also had lived experience from being in an environment where she was exposed to sexual violence through an unhealthy and abusive partner. She has extensive experience as an educator and aims to educate the youth on domestic and sexual violence. She also aims to serve as a support system to black survivors like herself through the wellness workshops offered with Project Agape.

ENIOLA OWABUMOWA (SHE/HER)

Programs and Operations Manager

Eniola joined Project Agape as she supports the mission of the organization. She is happy to be part of a organization that gives back to the community and educative methods to aid people who have experienced domestic violence. In the Ottawa community, there are not enough resources for BIPOC people and Project Agape provides just that.
As the director of events and a black women, she believes she can brainstorm events that will properly cater to the BIPOC community who are victims of domestic & sexual abuse, as she is a survivor.

HANNAH WILLIAMS-GRIFFITHS (SHE/HER)

Executive Assistant

Hannah joined Project Agape because she supports our mission to help BIPOCl survivors gain access to crucial resources that bridge the  inequalities they face in society.
She is passionate about breaking generational curses. 
To her, Victim Advocacy is providing the information, support and resources necessary for survivors to heal. It is healing that takes an intersectional approach at gender-based violence.
A part of Survivor Justice is fostering and nurturing healing that will have a meaningful impact on many generations to come.
