What We Do
About the Foundation Programs
The Foundation was created to break the harsh cycle of poverty by creating various programs and activities to teach the value of self-empowerment and improvement.
We assist the disadvantaged people of the Niger Delta community by ensuring that essential basic humanitarian services like access to healthcare, health education, recreational facilities and vocational training are available.
Various programs and activities will be offered at a centralized facility including:
— Skills Acquisition Program
The skills acquisition program is the Foundation’s flagship program. Every year, funds are provided in form of scholarship for the people of Okrika to acquire necessary life skills.
This program is designed to meet the growing challenge of unemployment within the host communities. Beneficiaries go through a one year intensive professional training at reputable institutes, thereafter professional certificates are issued upon graduation.
Some of the skills provided include Fashion and Design, Bead making, Catering, Arts & Crafts, Hotel Management etc. After graduation, the Foundation provides start-up kits to beneficiaries to aid them in becoming successful entrepreneurs.
