Today, Helpline Foundation for the Needy Abuja, partnered with the Ambassador Queen Worlu Foundation as they launched two new clusters of the Non-profit Revolving Loan Scheme.
The Scheme was initiated by the Founder of Helpline Foundation, Dr. Jumai Ahmadu in 2015 and has been successfully replicated in various rural communities.
The Ambassador Queen Worlu Foundation chose to adopt the Scheme and make it a part of their projects.
Speaking at the Launch, Mr. Sam Worlu stated that the foundation was created in honour of his wife, Ambassador Queen Worlu, a career diplomat who passed on while serving Nigeria in the Island of Sao Tome and Principe.
Ambassador Queen Worlu while alive was devoted to supporting the underprivileged and orphanages. In a bid to continue the work she started, Amb. Queen Worlu Foundation partners with the FCT school for the blind and welfare departments of various hospitals in the FCT.
He further stated that they were impressed with the sustainability model Helpline Foundation has built through the Nonprofit Revolving Loan Scheme and are happy to fund two clusters in Gwagwalada and Bwari.
Speaking at the launch through her representative, Mrs. Funmi Ajare, the President of Helpline Foundation Dr. Jumai Ahmadu reiterated the need for individuals and corporate organizations to support vulnerable people in the society not just by giving them fish but by also teaching them how to fish.
She also advised the beneficiaries to be committed to their businesses and cultivate good savings culture.
