Key focus areas

What we do

Our vision is to be a model provider of empowerment opportunities for the economically challenged in our target communities.

We have 3 key focus areas; Health, Shelter and Education.

 

Health:

Our health programmes are primarily focused on providing support for the total health and well-being of target beneficiaries to help them thrive. Total health and well-being encompass the physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of diseases (according to WHOs definition of health).

The specific objectives include:

  • Provide free and quality healthcare services to low-income beneficiaries and their immediate families via our medical and surgical outreach programme, through strategic collaboration with partners in the public and private sectors
  • Offer health education classes/ webinars and health promotion campaigns to target beneficiaries
  • Support and strengthen select health institutions through partnerships by providing relevant equipment, technology transfer and/or specialized training
  • Advocacy for better government health policies, legislation and programs to benefit the economically disadvantaged

In the last 2 years, our health arm has successfully trained over 2000 persons on health promotions, dispensed 504 free eye glasses, conducted 122 free eye surgeries, 4,900 laboratory screening, 875 dental procedures, distributed over 500 mosquito nets, and successfully intervened in over 7350 health related cases. This has been largely achieved through the generous support of our partners.

To effectively sustain this initiative, the foundation has concluded plans to set up a healthcare center/ hospital that will serve as a base for the free medical outreach, and continue to provide access to quality healthcare to low-income and underserved families within the West-African sub-region.

Shelter:

Our shelter program focuses on providing a last shelter resort for individuals or families admitted into the Foundation’s education program. The Foundation has  however began efforts to pilot its first shelter programme known as Kids Off The Streets – KOTS – which is focused on mitigating the number of street children within PF target communities. This is scheduled to launch in June 2021.

The long-term objectives include;

  • Mitigate the number of homeless/ street children/ persons within our target community
  • Become a stopgap accommodation for admitted persons with critical housing cases.
  • Systematically and positively transform the lives of each person in the shelter.
  • Provide ways of empowerment to adequately prepare the individual for successful reintegration into the larger society.

Education:

Our Education Program works with academic institutions – primary, secondary and tertiary – as well as vocational training institutions to successfully drive a broad range of education interventions from full/ partial academic scholarships to teacher trainings as well as vocational trainings for under-served persons.

Within the last two years, 42 under-served children and 103 teachers have benefited from the Scholarship programme and teacher training interventions respectively.

The Scholarship goal over the course of 5-years is to successfully intervene in the lives of 250 of these children. The teacher training 5-year goal is to successfully train 5000 public and private school teachers in critical point areas of class technology/ blended learning, pedagogy, financial management and global teaching ethics.
