It came into existence in the early year of 2010 as a result of passionate concern on the increasing rate of violence activities like kidnapping, militancy, fraud, murder, assassination, campus cultism, rape of minors, child-witch accusation, armed robbery, rioting, political thuggery to mention a few, becoming so common amongst high number of Nigerian Youths aged 21years – 45years in rural and urban centres. These violence activities and tendencies have become a generational recycling and we wish to break the cycle now.
OUR VISION: Is to try and reduce violence tendencies in our society by educating and enlightening children (3yrs – 20yrs) on the culture of tolerance, patience and love in their early formative years so that as they grow up they can grow up with it.
We also aimed at catering for abandoned and neglected single adolescent mothers; whom have dropped out of school due to unplanned pregnancy and see to how we can bring them back to school if she so desire. Or, empower her to learn useful skill-trade while caring for the welfare of her sibling.
OUR CONCERN: Is to develop potentials in orphans, street children, disabled and children born out of wedlock for emerging global leadership role.
OUR VIEW: We see a New Nigeria! We see a new world! Free of societal ills and violence in the future. To us, nobody is born a kidnaper, a militant, armed robber, murder, fraudster, etc, but rather, all these negative tendencies/acts are learnt and taught to perfection over a period of time, at which the mind has a vast role to play in order to shape opinion and judgment.
Peace the opposite of violence can be learnt and taught. Nobody is born a peacemaker, a peace builder, a peace vanguard; these tendencies are and can be learnt and taught to perfection over time and at which the mind has a vast role to play as well. It is the understanding on how the mind of a child works that will translate our vision into concrete action. And if we are able to do this, we will together with your support and assistance, achieve the following:-
