But as it is now, the foundation has already started making great waves of development and rehabilitation and social programmes in many of our communities across Delta state. Our practical impacts are there for everybody to see.”
When asked to give some of the objectives of the foundation and some of the achievements recorded so far in the country, the national director; Akpobome Okpako said, “As a foundation, some of the basic objectives of forming it are to support God’s work.

First, last year we visited the old people’s in Okparabe Kingdom. We presented food items and other necessities for them. This programme was widely captured by the media.
“Through our “Back To School” programme, the foundation has taken care of the educational needs of over eighty indigent children especially those children that hawk along streets and in open markets in both Okpe and Ughelli South LGAs of the state. In our skill acquisition training programme, many of our youths have benefited. The recent one was soap and detergent production. What our beneficiaries produced from this training were again given to pregnant women and nursing mothers during our visit to Ughelli Central Hospital. In fact, I can still count and count. “.
