A short history of where it all began -
Over the past 15 years of my life, I have been actively involved in social projects within my community - ranging from the YMCA, Red Cross Children's Hospital, and a few other fundraising and community upliftment projects.
With the passing of my mother in late 2019, I wanted to find a way to carry on her legacy, and honouring her memory. Losing someone who you've spent your life trying to make proud, leaves a void when they leave, and starting the Akasia Avenue Foundation (the street in which I was raised), brings life to her memory, and that of my childhood.
Setting out on this journey, I aspire to further collaborate with various business and individuals to uplift and help communities in need. The needs are plenty, and I aim to be of a support to underprivileged schools, youth organisations and old-aged homes in our local community.
The Akasia Avenue Foundation will strive to collect and donate;
- Food items
- Sanitary products for girls
- Clothes for children's homes
- Toys for children's homes
One of the goals is not only to donate, but encourage and provide an opportunity to share stories, and where we can, provide some advice and a way out of poverty, but partnering with local NGOs to provide computer classes, reading sessions, and feeding programs to those who need it most.
