“The Foundation is like you are living your life’s initiative, a ministry platform that has transformed several lives including men and women.
“We carry out several key activities; we carry out monthly activities; medical outreaches, personal outreaches for widows and orphans and others and the building teens empowerment and free skill acquisition.”
On how she funds the Foundation, she said “We partner with people and volunteers, we publicise our activities and people visit the office for enquiries and some individuals and corporate organizations do call and make donations.
I started in a very humble way with my personal allowances. We have church members who make their donations but it is never enough so we always ask for more people and organizations to continue to support the Foundation and God has also helped us to give sacrificially. Many of our beneficiaries are graduates now.”
