My Little Beginning, how we Started, where we are today!!!!!!!!

My parents are my greatest inspiration. It has always been their delight to encourage, support and sponsor family, relatives and others to any level of education they desire to attain.

I grew up watching my parentís give so much, that giving became a lifestyle to me. I therefore started my charity activities as a teenager when I gave out my motherís jewelries to her friends that I felt had non. I also gave out my clothes to my village friends who dressed very shabbily, especially to church, because I feel very uncomfortable and unhappy whenever I looked very different from them. Since at that stage I was not in control of my choices, I often got punished or scolded for those actions.

I started my community service by been a volunteer with an NGO - Positive Development Foundation, saddled with the responsibility of supporting vulnerable families in Cross River State. This provided me with the required skills to run my vision and also brought me in close contact with very poor and vulnerable families. My charity activity took a different dimension in December 2005 when, I developed my vision, set my goals and subsequently established a Non Profit Organization to help meet the needs of the voiceless in the society.

We started by providing foodstuffs for slum dwellers in Calabar South, with support from some corporate bodies and individuals. We have since grown into solving divers problems for over 35 communities across Nigeria in the area of Health, Education, Leadership/mentorship training , Economic Empowerment for rural Women/Youth ,Promoting Community sanitation, Feeding programs, Shelter/Clothes Distribution, to name a few. We have touched more than 15,000 lives especially women and children within our areas of operation. These includes: Cross River, Benue, Nasarawa, Ebonyi States and FCT Abuja. We hope to expand our spread other places as our resources grow.
