The new Home is spacious and well ventilated. Apart from the dormitories, there are separate kitchen facilities, milk preparation room, isolation room for children with suspected infectious diseases, adequate water supply, constant electricity supply made possible by an electrical generating plant as a stand-by to that supplied by the Nigerian Electrical Power Authority (NEPA). The Rotary Club of Bodija in ibadan donated a Washing machine. The Rotary Club of ibadan-oluyole in its 1999/2000 project included renovation of the children's wards replacement of windows and mosquito nets and painting of the entire home. Mrs. Solanke's vision extended beyond the home for Motherless Babies. She felt there was need to take care of children whose mothers had to go to work away from their homes. This dream was realized through the Bodija's lion club, an indigenous philanthropic organization based in ibadan. They donated a building in the premises of the Home for this purpose and thus Mrs. Solanke;s day care Centre was established in 1995. With all these developments, the interest of the life patron of the home, Cheif Bode Akindele was aroused and he donated to the home a multi- purpose hall. It is hoped that these buildings will form a muscle of a nursery/primary school in the nearest future.
