This is a charitable organisation that primarily focuses on the health and social care needs of Nigerians. It tackles issues ranging from sexual health, mental wellbeing, first aid and homely remedy techniques, to the management of chronic and congenital health issues. It has carried its campaigns to hospitals and homes for children with profound learning and physical disabilities In Lagos State and to other parts of Nigeria. An aspect of this body is a website and a YouTube channel which disseminate health related information to all and sundry.
Its objectives and activities have continued to be relevant to the needs of people. They have remained to be strong advocates on learning disabilities, environmental hygiene, care of the elderly, etc. They have written health articles, produced educative health videos, etc which has helped in saving many lives. This is evident in the number of viewership to the organization’s media sites and the clamour for the NGO’s revisit to the hospitals and orphanages within Lagos State and its environs.
EY Foundation’s goal is to support foster care – children and parents in four different areas: psychological assistance, education, financial help and promoting foster care. Thanks to EY Foundation’s projects (over 20), foster care in Poland is going through some positive changes. For example, by educating legal guardians, foster parents and other specialists, the level of professional support is growing for the children in care. Over two hundred volunteers engage in the foundation’s projects. Each year they help around 1300 foster families.
I see a great potential in EY Foundation’s projects. The EY Foundation plays a significant role in building better conditions for children in foster care. Children are our future and we should support them, especially the group who had a rough start in life.

Mobile School is an organisation dedicated to helping street children throughout the world. It develops mobile school carts and trains local street workers. Presently there are 36 mobile schools in 21 countries, spread across four continents: Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe. Mobile School focuses on two target groups: Street children and the street workers who engage with them in informal educational activities.
The educational curriculum does not aim to replace the traditional school curriculum but to complement it. All the materials and games target an increase in self-respect and identity, and the discovery of talents and empowerment. Through this experience strong foundations are built literally “on the street” based on faith in one's abilities, self-confidence and the motivation necessary to support further growth processes.

Mobile School develops training programmes, educational material and projects, workshops and special campaigns to support its work with street children. See http://www.mobileschool.org/en
