PCLI – A God given vision
About Practical Christian Living Initiative
PCLI is the result of a God given vision to Tinuola Agbabiaka – a lawyer by training and a certified relationship counsellor – over eight years ago which has manifested as an NGO whose core focus is to encourage strong and wholesome relationships both in the home and in the public arena.
PCLI believes that the home is a sanctuary where attitudes are formed, and a happy home ultimately leads to a better society as a whole. The family home is the smallest unit in the society and it is where character, attitudes and behaviour are formed and PCLI’s vision is to help in building loving and fulfilling homes which ultimately leads to a better society.
Relationships are the bedrock of societies and if we can to the best extent possible maintain good relationships with each other, societies all over the world will be better off for it. The home is the building block for these relationships and PCLI’s core vision is to facilitate the building of great relationships in the home before any other place.
PCLI actively encourages the building of tight-knit relationships through workshops, dinner and dance events, newsletters, counselling, and social media posts to reach out to the community at large and involve all members of the family, across generations.
For relationships whose bonds are fraying, we advocate for counselling provided by a certified relationship counsellor to set parties on a path to reconciliation and restoration.
