We were moved to take action, because we have had the privilege of viewing society from two spectrums; an awareness of the abysmal poverty and the acute need that exists at a stratum. It is the general notion that people in poverty do not want to work, go back to school, better themselves or be integrated into society. The reality is that most of them lack the requisite support system, and have been battered by society. In the right environment with mentors and spiritual support, they blossom, and that is what Freedom Foundation has set out to do. We reach out to them in their own environment; the Foundation has moved to the inner cities and deprived communities to meet their needs.
It is an attitudinal, legislative and spiritual issue; this needs the joint efforts of corporations, society and religious groups in partnership with government efforts. Freedom Foundation was birthed out of the desire to create a growing and sustainable sphere of positive influence by actively engaging social ills.
