In 2013, I participated and spoke at the United Nation’s Vision 2030 Zero Tolerance Project aimed at eradicating the exploitation of children and women. In 2014, in partnership with the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Nigeria we organized an awareness campaign to raise awareness on the numbers of missing, exploited and abused children and how we can help stem this tide. In 2019, we organized a virtual prayer event for all missing children and persons.
Thousands of children and fragile seniors die each year from waterborne diseases. These deaths are mostly preventable. Fountains of Compassion is working hard to alleviate this problem in local communities abandoned by the government. We have provided a sustainable water supply in the Nsadop and Effigbo communities of Boki Local Government Area, CRS. The last of these two projects were completed and opened for use in August 2021. Efforts are in place to expand our water project to several communities. Please consider supporting this effort and save lives.
FOUNTAINS OF COMPASSION completed another educational empowerment project in March 2021. We believe that educating our young should be a privilege for a select few but the right of every child. Rev. Fr. Philip Paul Tah released over N2.5 Million ($5,300) in support of our Educate our Children Fund. This year 2021, 55 students who could not afford their registration in the West African Examination Council (WAEC) got registered for their upcoming exams. With the expiration of registration closing in, most of these students were at risk of losing out. Beneficiaries came from six Secondary Schools in Boki and Ikom Local Government Areas. The Schools include:
1. COMMUNITY SECONDARY SCHOOL NSADOP, BOKI. – Five Students
2. GOVERNMENT SECONDARY SCHOOLS BANSAN-OSOKOM, BOKI – Ten Students
3. COMMUNITY SECONDARY SCHOOL BOJE, BOKI – Ten Students
4. COMMUNITY SECONDARY SCHOOL ISO-BENDEGHE, BOKI – Ten Students
5. SECONDARY COMMERCIAL SCHOOL KAKWAGOM, BOKI. Fifteen Students

May God bless Fountains of Compassion and the friends that continue to partner and support our efforts at empowering and equipping our young people to face the future with greater prospects. Below are some photos of the students and their principals. All thanks to Rev.Fr. Philip Tah.
: We continue to support the 52 students currently in our program as we identify more indigent students to support. We also plan to continue our work with local school leaders to assess ever-changing needs and respond to them quickly.
We currently have nine people in our program and look forward to opening up new opportunities and training more persons.
We plan to identify more areas and bring these services as well.
We are currently building an Ultramodern Senior Citizens’ Home for impoverished and homeless seniors.
Going forward, we plan to continue engaging our young people, parents, citizens, and educators at schools, churches, synagogues, mosques about this social menace and how we can all act. We also plan to work with local police departments to report any and all suspected incidences. We will continue to use our social media platforms to raise awareness and the call to action.
