Opening Hearts Foundation
Poverty is a very complicated issue but feeding a child should not be.
In the world we live in today hunger and starvation amongst children have continued to be on the rise. The Children’s agency says that there are 2½ million starving children in Nigeria and only about 20 percent of these get help.
Opening Hearts Foundation is an initiative of Kadine’s Soup Pot where we put a smile on the faces of disadvantaged children by providing them with a nutritious meal during the festive seasons and on special occasions.
We believe that children are the future of our nation.
At Opening Hearts Foundation, we feel the heartache of seeing children from impoverished backgrounds as they watch others from more privileged backgrounds enjoy seasons of joy with no recourse to them.
For this reason, we have undertaken to create memories that these less privileged children can cherish for the rest of their lives.
We help disadvantaged children aged between 1 to 12 years old as well as some special needs children in our community. These are children mostly found on the streets, some live with their parents struggling to make a daily living, while some live on their own, getting little or no care at all.
We are able to do this through the financial help and contributions we get from family, friends and well-wishers.
It has been an amazing journey since we started our Outreach Programmes. Over the last 3 years, we have successfully completed a total of 17 Outreach Programmes.
