“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained…” – James 1:27
Mrs. Florence Babatunde is a 60 yrs old widow, who lost her husband, Mr. Joshua Babatunde, 11 yrs ago to the cold hands of death. She sells charcoals for a living, Although she has eight children, it appears, none of them really cares for her, judging from the way she struggles for a living at her age.
Our team was attracted to this industrious 60 yrs old widow who hails from Ogun State, because she was hardworking and decided to support her with a free cash donation of ₦20,000 to help boost her petty charcoal business, which she sells at the front of her house at NO. 3, Showonuola Street, Agege, Lagos.

The aged widow was full of joy and appreciation to God for remembering her in her plight. According to her, she had never seen that kind of gesture throughout her entire life.

To God Be the Glory.
Our target is to empower 1000 Widows with free cash grants, to enable them to start or boost their petty businesses. The goal of this project is to economically empower poor widows to improve their livelihood and be able to cater for their families.
Please note that the videos and pictures of all our charitable activities are not intended to ‘impress or show off’ to anybody, rather it is our practical way of teaching humanity how to love one another.
We are showing you this video of one of our widows’ empowerment activities
1. To create awareness for the plight of hapless widows globally, who are traumatized, oppressed, impoverished and abandoned by government, religious organizations and the society.
2. To practically teach you, that service to humanity is the only true ‘religion’ that God recognizes (James 1:27), and that the religion you practice is meaningless before God if you fail to help the poor and the needy around you.
3. To inspire you to join this campaign to lift poor widows and their families out of poverty. Look around you, there are poor widows struggling for survival. Emulate us by supporting them with ₦20,000 to boost their petty businesses (Look for poor widows in your locality and give them the money DIRECTLY).
4. To inspire religious organizations (especially the church, my constituency), to begin to promote the cause of love and our shared humanity, over and above religious rituals and dogmas.
