FAST – Feed And Save Tomorrow
In January 2017 we initiated the Feed And Save Tomorrow project, a food drive project to feed kids in the Streets. The project fed over 2000 kids in the streets of Orile, Apapa Iganmu in Lagos state and left smiles on the faces of these kids who live in slums with poor nutritional diet and hygiene.
The project continued in Anambra in March 2017, and fed over 1000 kids in the hinterlands communities of Anambra North.
The project was rounded up in June 2017 at Ebonyi State where we fed over 2,500 kids in Abakiliki, bringing the number of children fed during the project to a total number of over 5, 5000
VISITATION TO THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED
In May 2017, our founder celebrated her birthday with the visually impaired students of Bethsaida Home for the Blind in Lagos State, where we spent time interacting with them and sharing with them the love, care and the gifts we came with.
This visitation exposed our Foundation to the numerous talents possessed by these students, as they took turns to entertain us with their varying and wonderful talents. It was another opportunity for us to show love and care.
GENOTYPE BEFORE YES
In a bid to curb the menace of sickle cell in our society by arresting the situation which is often caused by ignorance or negligence on intending couples, our foundation initiated a project In June 2017, The project was tagged Genotype Before Yes, a sickle cell sensitization campaign to educate Ebonyi State students on the need to know their genotype.
The project was done in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Ebonyi State and Association of Persons Living with Sickle Cell Disorder. We gathered students from different schools in Ebonyi State and through the help of resource persons in the medical field we were able to educate them on the dangers of sickle cell and how it can be averted.
In September 2018 we launched a self-evaluation project in line with the SDGs. The program was tagged Becoming You, and was geared towards empowering and encouraging the African Child to pursue his or her goals regardless of the travails of life. It was a resource program that afforded us opportunity to educate young children in Apapa Iganmu, Lagos State to never relent in their strides. We also gave out school materials to students during the program.
