About Us

The Efon-Alaaye Development League formerly known as Efon-Alaaye Improvement League from its birth in around 1947 until the early 2000s has come a long way as the umbrella Socio-cultural and development organization for all Efon Alaaye indigenes at home and everywhere on the face of the earth.

The Improvement League itself was a metamorphosis and amalgamation of various community-spirited elite groups formed in the major cities from the 1930s through to the 1940s. These include the “Brotherhood of Elites”, “Efon Progressive Union” and others who came together in August of 1947 to form what was named The Efon-Alaaye Improvement League after the “League of Nations” of 1945.
