2014Miss Malaika Queen, Eirene Binabiba has officially launched the ENB foundation, a non-profit organization that is focused on conducting sustainable development projects in deprived communities to promote development as well as tackle issues relating to women and children.
According to the 2015 Ghana Labour Force survey report, commissioned by the Ghana statistical service, revealed that about 1.2 million people in Ghana are unemployed and out of that number 714,916 are females. The United Nations (UN) also revealed that, 57 million children remain out of school and majority school dropout cases are as a result of lack of funding thereby cutting short their dreams and aspirations.
Another crucial issue deprived communities face, has to do with accessing basic clothing and social amenities. The ENB Foundation seeks to tackle these issues by focusing on three (3) core projects annually; The LASEAL Project (Learn a skill; Earn a living); a women’s economic empowerment project, where resource persons and volunteers would equip the women in deprived communities with entrepreneurial skills to encourage self-dependency.
The Cloth and Comm Project (clothing and community); this project seeks to help provide clothing needs and basic amenities to deprived communities. Notre futur (our future); this project will assist brilliant but needy children through school by offering them scholarships and creating mentorship programs which would serve as a step to help them realize their career goals and aspirations.
The ENB Foundation expresses its’ readiness to partner with companies, other NGO’s and sponsors that have similar concerns of conducting sustainable development projects in deprived communities, to enable the foundation to achieve their vision of being at the forefront of impact, empowerment and development globally.
