As you all are aware, Nigeria is one of the unfortunate nations where abject poverty is palpable owing to harsh economic situation of the country. There are orphans, widows and many unemployed people everywhere and the population of this wretched of the earth is more than 90 percent of the population of the entire country.
“The poverty in Nigeria is so palpable that more than 95 percent of our kids have been dropping out of school due to lack of funds by their parents to sponsor their education.
This sad reality majorly informed the birth of this foundation.
“We have found out that in the Nigerian society, there are many who need help, owing to the palpable economic hardship and the widespread austerity in the land.
