On the 25th of March 2021, the foundation donated an HP laptop to Mr Anorue Manix, a resident in Ayobo community, Ipaja Lagos State in order to assist in learning advanced computer skills such as coding, graphics design, power point, Ms word amongst others.

According to the Director of the foundation, Rebecca Uzoma, the gesture is part of the organisation’s vision to support the underprivileged in the community.

“Anorue Manix is a smart young man who is interested in improving himself through these basic computer skills training to excel in information technology for personal and professional growth.

“His dream is to become a professional in information technology. He reached out to us and we went the extra mile to help him realize his dreams with the laptop.

"This empowerment project aims at supporting him in earning a source of income and livelihood for himself."

The director added that the foundation has reached out to several communities with food, stationary, scholarship and clothing items, but is willing to partner with individuals, the Lagos State government and other agencies in empowering more underprivileged people in the society.

“We cannot afford to leave everything to the Government. We as a non-profit organisation have taken it upon ourselves with the help of volunteers to do our beat to change human lives," she concluded.
