Welcome to FOYEF


This foundation was embarked upon by Engr. (Dr.) Friday Otutu, to transform the society from social exclusion to an all-inclusive one that would guarantee a level playing ground for all especially for the youths. The project was borne out of his long desire to improve the lives of the less-privileged in the society, and several youths from the Ukwuani Local Government area are participating in the programme.

This program started in 2009 as an annual talk show and mentoring forum for the youths of Umuaja Community in Ukwuani Local Government area. The attendance at the events provided platform to assist the teaming youths in realizing their full potential by giving necessary direction. It continued as an annual event/forum for years 2010 and 2011 with a steady increase in attendance and awareness.
