Founders of the Friends of the Needy Foundation



Through community based care we can integrate socially the orphans, teenage mothers and their families within the community by promoting awareness to all. Our collective effort is transforming their lives gradually every day through the projects being implemented by the organization. Though we can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone because in a gentle way, we can shake our communities and the world.




My dream has always been to lighten the burden of the needy in our community. Till then I always wondered why somebody din’t n do something for the poor orphan and vulnerable teenage mother in my village but then I realized that I am somebody. Indeed you don’t have to wait to be a pastor or a leader to lend a hand , neither to get old or rich enough to help not even your church or government, you just need a heart full of grace where utmost compassion and love is in plenty,where sharing the little you have with the needy is the way of life .for we cannot live only for ourselves , a thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men. I believe that what we have done for ourselves alone dies with us , but what we have done of others and the world remains and is immortal. To see the orphans and teen mums gradually picking up their lives again hoping for a better future through the initiated projects that alone in my view is victory for humanity.This is what makes my life a complete cycle.


Its my believe that giving is breathing in and breathing out. The compassion and passion of helping the needy touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity, the satisfaction of our efforts is not on the projects that the organization is implementing, but its in the faces & hearts of those teenage mothers and orphans where the dream of a better future for their children and lives is not lost but renewed again. Indeed if you can’t feed hundred people , then feed just one never worry about numbers, help one at a time, always start with person nearest to you.


AugistineWhen we open our hearts to giving angels fly to our door steps. It is not that successful people are giving, it is that givers are successful people. In our mission of transforming the lives of the needy, we must continue to look around our neighborhoods and reach out to touch a heart as the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the services of others for no joy can equal the joy of serving others.
