The founder was from a divorced home and both her and her late sister always talked about how they could help poor children and their mothers that couldn’t provide for themselves. They were always thought by their parents to be grateful for what they had and knew that not all kids could afford the day to day necessities like food, clothing etc. PEF is not just a project for the founder Jennifer M. Akporehe, but she sees it as a way of fulfilling a dream that she and Pamela once shared. It is a charity very close to her heart because of the history it carries and the meaning it has. “Pamela Erere Foundation to me is an extention of my sister; I will treat it like I would her” Jennifer M. Akporehe
The Pamela Erere foundation (PEF), was founded by Chairperson Jennifer Mairo Akporehe. Named after her late older sister Pamela Ereremena Emerhana who before her premature demise had a passion for helping others.
The Pamela Erere Foundation (PEF) is a non-governmental organization whose objectives are to aid five major categories of people. They include;
- Children from divorced homes
- Children raised by single mothers
- Divorced women,
- Single mothers
A lot of attention is focused on other areas but not everyone seems to realize the damage that this divorce/single parenting epidemic brings on us as a society. The Pamela Erere Foundation sees the exact opposite. The importance of children as the leaders of tomorrow cannot be overemphasized and with the rise in premarital births and divorce the world over, the world needs to be informed about the hazards of this status quo. This is particularly crucial in a country like Nigeria where a single mother/ divorced woman is seen as a disgrace, Or where widows are made to fend for themselves once the bread winner of a family is demised. Not even the children in these situations are spared. They get to live with the stigma day in day out.
The Pamela Erere foundation will situate in Lagos Nigeria, with its international office in Dallas TX
The goal of the Pamela Erere Foundation is to provide equal love, and opportunities for every mother and child that falls into the afore mentioned categories and to end the epidemic of women and children suffering at the hands of the society due to circumstances beyond their control
HOW WE PLAN TO ACHIEVE THIS
The PEF helps provide basic amenities such as mosquito nets,food,clothing,shoes, bags, books, household items etc. that is donated by supporters of the charity in the United States and Nigeria. These items may be used or new and will be distributed to the needy women and children throughout the year.(This is our most popular aspect of the giving process)
Children’s fees would also be paid and for those who want to learn handwork like carpentry, tailoring, hairdressing etc. The foundation would also assist. Children would also be encouraged in extracurricular activities like sports, music, dance, art etc.
Women would be encouraged to become independent by acquiring their High School Diploma. Vocational training would also be sponsored. Once they can earn a living, they would get off the program making room for other needy people.
Mentorship classes would be held by positive role models, celebrities, public speakers etc periodically.
… a chance to love and be loved/ changing lives one mother and child at a time
