She averred that the Project is to support less privileged and needy children in the deprived community and by extension, across the country.
According to Mary Awuni, since this is the Foundation’s maiden Project, she is seeking support to help make the donation a success.

Child trafficking, child labour, violence, loss of family, war, abuse, poverty and illiteracy are some of the plagues that affect them in their daily lives. It is time the privileged extend a helping hand to these people especially children for they are the future.”
