Poverty is on a rise in Nigeria, despite the economic growth. In 2010, Nigeria Bureau of Statistics (NBS) stated that 60.9% of Nigerians were living in absolute poverty; this figure had risen from 54.7% in 2004… In Jan 2018, another report was published showing 67% of Nigerians now living below the poverty line due to so many reasons including high unemployment rates, increased insecurity etc. This only goes to prove that poverty is really on a rise in Nigeria… When you actually visit some of these communities, the state in which they live is so terrible that it translates to evil when items that can be useful (no matter how small) are thrown in the trash instead of being donated.

“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy”… Kanu Ndukwe

Our Mission is to take items you are willing trash or donate, (help you free up your storage and declutter your home) and use it to bless someone you may never get to meet; positively impacting so many lives in ways beyond your imagination.

“And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.” Luke 14:14
