Knowing the importance of a sane society, Adewunmi David Adetona and his three friends came together to empower young people and widows using different genres of the arts.
Based in Lagos, the group, Ark of God Humanitarian Outreach, aims at reducing poverty and crime in the land.
Conscious that it is better to teach a man how to fish than to give him fish, the group employs different genres of the art such as film making, visual art, cuisine, fashion designing and others to equip these less privileged young ones, arm them to fend for themselves and contribute their quotas to the society.
It is in this light that the group has to structure its programmes to meet their needs and other less privileged groups such as widows and teens.
Formally known as the Ark Humanitarian Outreach, Adetona revealed that the name was altered at the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) during registration, saying Nigerians should partner with not-for-profit organisations to catch the youths now they are still pliable to bend so that they don’t become willing tools for crime and criminals.
Calling on youths leaving the shores of the country’s to have a rethink, saying going abroad for greener pasture is not the best solution, Adetona said the wealthy people of today started small and that you do not need to be in crime to survive.
