Helpline foundation tasked on less privileged
A non-governmental organization based in Abuja, Helpline Foundation for the Needy, has been called upon to partner with Non Indigenes Ethnic Parliament and other relevant nongovernmental organisations with a view to providing a viable platform for the less privileged in the society.
Specifically, the President of Non Indigenes Ethnic Parliament, Prince Raph Clement, said Helpline Foundation has assisted indigent students across different ethnic groups to obtain basic education through awards of scholarship, noting that widows from the six area councils in the Federal Capital Territory have equally benefited from the foundation’s gesture.
While presenting an award of excellence to the president of Helpline Foundation, Mrs. Jumai Ahmadu, Mr Clement revealed that one of the aims of Non Indigenes Ethnic Parliament is to build a community of young professionals, passionate and ready to contribute to socio economic and political change in Nigeria, and to combat the social ills facing the country where youths are associated with vices such as hooliganism, cultism and drug trafficking.
“It is in the light of the above that we seek partnership with Helpline Foundation for the Needy to harness and look for possible ways we can work together to achieve this noble and laudable course,” he affirmed.
Responding, Mrs. Ahmadu, expressed gratitude for the recognition, even as she promised to do more in the education of the less privileged children who are orphaned by HIV/AIDS.
