A non-governmental organisation, Winning Point Worldwide Foundation (WPWF), has revealed plans to address the issue of poverty in Nigeria even as it stated that such a task should not be left to the government alone.
The group, an indigenous humanitarian service organisation that is duly incorporated in accordance with the laws of the country made the plan known at its maiden stakeholders’ meeting in Abuja
Winning Point: Why it was born
The President of the Foundation, Sunday E. Daniel told stakeholders that the group was birthed to see that the people at the grassroots are adequately reached with social enterprise programs, aimed at alleviating their plight.
He said the mission of the organisation is to harness the underprivileged including the widows, widowers, orphans, internally displaced persons, the physically challenged individuals and communities through Agriculture, Life Skills and ICT Development.
The group also aims at improving the living standard of vulnerable people and communities around the world through education, training support programmes, community mobilisation, health care support, capacity building, and advocacy.
National Secretary of the organization, Mr. Efe Agary said the foundation would make a difference in the lives of people because it is very close to the people and thereby knows what the people need.
He added that the approaches, operation, and mobilisation of the organisation will be different from what people are used to.
“Winning Point Worldwide Foundation will make a huge difference in the lives of the people because we are very close to the people and our strategy is different from what people are used to and we are so committed to our mission statement,” he said.
On her own part, Vice President of the Foundation, Mrs. Eduum Enefiok Ekanem, said, Winning Point Foundation is not depending on grants to make life better for the beneficiaries but to develop people through skill acquisition whereby, people would not be waiting endlessly on grants or government provision but would be trained and empowered to be self-dependent through different kinds of opportunities that the foundation would be giving to people especially the less privileged.
She added that the partnership with Golden Bridge would be an added advantage for all beneficiaries because the organization is in partnership with many organisations that would make the mission to be easily accomplished.
The meeting which was held at Green Mind Hotels, Utako, Abuja had in attendance Executive Board Members, Regional Leaders, and State Leaders across the country.
WPWF is made up of people from all walks of life that are sold out to help the less privileged.
