Underpriviledged gets hope as AAF intervenes
As a Mother of NGOs, Audrey Allen Foundation (AAF) will be saddled with the burden of sourcing for funds for our partner NGOs for the actualization of projects as the foundation has identified the paucity of funds as a limiting factor towards the effective implementation of projects.
The owners of the Foundation, known for its craftsmanship, quality, and service-oriented approach to business as well as outstanding reputation for creativity, efficiency, originally established itself as one of the best events managers in Nigeria when they designed the SIAONE SOCCER ACADEMY, for the NIGERIA’s ex-international and former Coach of the Super Eagles, Samson Siasia amongst others.
With an vision to stand out as the Mother of Child related NGOs in Nigeria, the foundation is poised to monster the capacity to assist up to 100 Child related NGOs on related issues such as Polio, HIV/AIDS, Child prostitution, Child Abuse; both sexual and domestic, child trafficking, Autism, Down syndrome, Leukaemia, heart diseases and a host of others in raising funds for their projects by 2020. According to the founder, Tosin Allen, the foundation’s major tool of raising fund is woven around entertainment, which include Movies, Music and Comedy, hence the choice of the slogan “saving lives through entertainment.” The foundation believes that Child related NGOs are gravely faced with serious scarcity of funds in the execution of their projects.
