W-HBS Partners With JAKIN N.G.O. On Fresh Foundation Initiative

How do we give freely while at the same time not fostering further dependence, which is dehumanizing and psychologically damaging for the needy person, or at least the person who is potentially capable of meeting his or her own needs.

Fresh foundation project is an initiative of JAKIN N.G.O. It is a highly subsidized basic business management principles, re-orientation, computer application, and office automation machine training program to reform and empower indigent and out-of-school youths in the lower class of Lagos State.

The overarching strategy is to empower youths with entrepreneurship and employability skills. The FRESH FOUNDATION PROJECT is an initiative that contributes to an overall program mission:

“To empower the less privileged members of society and help them become independent, responsible citizens”

Jakin N.G.O is registered as JAKINMINIS INTERNATIONAL COMPANY LIMITED BY GUARANTEE i.e. an N.G.O allowed to trade. The organization founded by Mrs Olubukola Adebiyi was established on October 12th 2003 and it began operations on November 30th 2003 in Lagos State. It is a non – governmental organization with an overall aim of solving some of the social ills in our society and ultimately striving in assisting Nigeria in meeting the Millennium Development Goals [MDGs].
