This foundation is built on the desire to help the poor find a means of living, either by the means of training them on particular skills or equipping them to start up a life with whatever skills that they have acquired before. We stand on the ideology that ‘you don’t give a man fish to eat, but you teach him how to fish’. When food is given to the hungry, it satisfies their immediate quest for food, but leaves them on a longer term of hunger and poverty, because you have only succeeded in making them believe that there is someone somewhere who will always bring the food for them to eat. On the other hand, when you equip them with a means of providing that food for themselves, then you have provided a long term solution to hunger.
The quest to maintain a green and clean environment is also one of the factors on which this foundation is built. 80 percent of the very common sicknesses could be avoided if our environment is kept clean.
The transfer of funds that cost us a lot most times are as a result of sicknesses that can be avoided. When these funds are not being transferred, our business capitals would be progressively built, and poverty would gradually be eradicated.
