Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

FACTS is a community humanitarian organization set up with a Vision of creating a Just community with equal opportunity to Vulnerable children such as children with disabilities, street children, single mother, and school drop outs. We desire to create a happy environment where all children and youths and girls are empowered and enjoy their right to walk in the fullness of their potential and become responsible and independent citizens and play a productive and equal role in society.
FACT’s main objective is to fight for the rights of the Vulnerable Children, promote girl child and to assist her actualize her full potential by advocating on her behalf, empowering, motivating, focusing on her right to education/ acquisition of life long skills to spearhead her own liberation. To us a child is looked at from the time of birth to the age of 18yrs.
Due to the continued discrimination, domestic violence and abuse that children face every day across the world, especially the girl child, a new global observance to highlight the importance of empowering girls and ensuring their human rights was up as on 11 October 2012 the United Nations marked the first International Day of the Girl Child by calling for an end to child marriage, and stressing education as one of the best strategies for protecting girls against this harmful practice.
We are developing a piece of land to build a block which will house 150 orphans.
