LINTRICIA Ndajiwo Foundation has announced the appointment of Nigerian Music artist and celebrity Musa Akillah more popularly known as Morrel as its newest Goodwill Ambassador.
The announcement of Morrel was made known by the Communication Manager and Team Lead of foundation Yahaya Garba yesterday in Abuja, who said that Morrel shared similar values of the Foundation with a dream to uplift underprivileged children and stop street begging in the country.
Morrel expressed enthusiasm to take on his role and work towards achieving the objectives and vision of the foundation.
“The menace of street begging in Arewa is a cancer to our society and we must join hands to eradicate this menace. Young boys and girls whose future are being stolen from them under the guise of Almajiranci and street hawking need to be rescued from such situation.
“This foundation has demonstrated their zeal to curb the menace of illiteracy due to an ever increasing number of out of school children in Nigeria. My vision for Arewa has always been centered on massive education and ending street begging and the LINTRICIA Ndajiwo Foundation is strategically solving both so this is a partnership made in heaven”.
On his part, Garba said that the appointment of Morrel would help raise awareness while calling on the support of well to do Nigerians and private sector to support the vision of the foundation.
“LINTRICIA Ndajiwo Foundation started it activities last year with free school registration and enrollment for some selected children we identified that follow their parents to beg daily inside Minna City. We were able to convince some of the parents of these children to allow us register them at a nearby school were they can attend with the full tuition and basic necessities like books, Uniforms, shoes, school bags and even basic feeding taken care of by our foundation.
“We are looking forward to growing our Partnership over the coming years as we welcome Musa Akillah and his team on board. It is indeed a new vision and new direction. I’m sure we all know a lot of work is required to run and maintain an organization like ours and at times we rely on assistance from outside of the foundation itself.
“It is with people and organizations such as our valued ambassador and partners that makes a future without street begging a possibility” he concluded.
