Welcome to Silver lining Foundation
…when the strong helps the weak, it makes us stronger – Ginly/Founder
To ensure that the socioeconomic challenges of the disadvantaged in our society is improved at all levels.
Silver Lining Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization based in Abuja, Nigeria was founded in 2005. The Foundation was registered with Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in Nigeria as a charity organization in 2011 with the aim of reaching out to people in need, the aged, homeless, uneducated children and children in the orphanage home. The Foundation currently relies on donations from its few members to carry out programs. The Foundation donates food stuff, clothes, education materials and children toys to many villages within Abuja and beyond.
The founder has been in her own little way contributing towards improving the life of the insecure in many parts of the world. She is in agreement with Dr. Gordon Brown, the former Prime Minister of Britain that: ‘Acts of Kindness are usually not about doing great things but about doing small thing with great love.’
She has been a firm believer on the idea that, the cause of touching people’s life isn’t the cause of a race or a street. A party or a class-‘it is the cause of humankind, the very birthright of humanity!’ And this cause of touching the life of the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
It is on this cause and the inspiration from Brian Sher’s thinking that: Passion is meaningless without commitment. Commitment is what takes a passionate dream and makes it real ‘that finally built her and gave her a vision that is today known as Silver Lining Foundation.
The Foundation aims to source for funds to provide water boreholes in villages within Abuja and many communities in Nigeria that lack clean water. There has been series of visitation carried out in many villages in Abuja to map out locations for borehole drilling as the inhabitant of these villages lack clean water. In view of limited resources at the disposal of members to carry out this noble project that will improve the quality of life of people in the identified villages, the Foundation is currently seeking for help from individuals, organizations and institutions as sponsors and donors. The Foundation believes that by providing clean water to these villages the risk of water borne diseases such as cholera will be drastically reduced if not completely eliminated.
