The Friends Support Foundation (FSF) is a body put up by a group of youths from diverse religious and educational background across the states of South Eastern Nigeria.
The foundation was set up with the sole aim of reaching out to the poor, the needy and the less privileged. Our project has been on for seven months now and huge achievement recorded. We have constantly maintained a monthly visit to less privileged and at remote locations. Providing them basic necessities such as foods, cloths, shelters and educational and religious materials. It is so unbelievable that there are still primitive locations in Nigeria with humans residing in those locations. We spotted out those primitive areas with the help of an independent tourist who has since joined our cause.
These locations lack government attention and are far from their state capitals. They live basically on cash crops and rain water, with little or no civilization. Education is like a news to them same with religion. However, some locations have schools but they lack teachers, barely two or three. The pupils lack uniform, footwear, education materials such as textbooks, exercise books and other writing materials and lots more.
We have maintained conscious effort in supplying all these necessities whenever we embark on reach outs and from our follow-up, which we started three months ago, we are impressed and maintained more supply. By following up we mean revisiting a location after three months to ascertain level of progress and sustainability.
Based on this, we discovered the need to do more and maintain achieved result. We however, cannot accomplish all that on our little source of income and that leads us into seeking assistance to actualize these. Part of what we intend to fund is erecting of school buildings, more supply of study materials, more teachers to be employed. We have already started talking with the State Ministry of Education to post teachers there. The problem has always been access road, housing etc. for the teachers and we intend to reduce the effect by your assistance.
While we try to reach out to Government in order to extend presence and civilization to such locations, we seek sponsorship, assistance and funds to enhance our project of reach out. We have lined up various locations across the nation to visit and we hope to go beyond the shores of the Eastern States and that of the nation. Among our list include the IDPs (Internally Displaced Peoples Camp) both in the Easter State and Northern States of Nigeria.
The sponsorship of this project has remained that of the group of fifteen youths and based on this, sometimes our economy is so strained that we are unable to meet expectations.
We seek, urgently, financial assistance to enable us improve on the project, the supplies and get civilization close to these people. Lets continue to give them hope of life, hope of existence and hope for a brighter future........It could have been anyone.
Your noble and generous assistance will forever be acknowledged, personally, appreciated and our prayers for you will be ceaseless. God almighty will forever continue to shower his blessings upon you.
