While some people have tagged it executive begging, some people simply put it as a necessary step to take to fund an NGO. If you remember, almost four years now, the Nollywood actor, Desmond Elliot launched his foundation, ever since the commencement of the project which simply aims at sensitising people on sanitation, water and hygiene, things have been so rough for the self-sponsored organisation. In an interview recently, Desmond who is called by Sola by family and close family, it’s time for corporate organisation or individuals to come to the aide of the foundation.
``It’s a foundation that is sadly not too efficient right now because of funding. Before then, it was solely funded by me and I was thinking of how I can bring in other people into believing in that vision. There is very little you can do with just one person. Bringing money out of just one source but if you have different people contributing, it makes it easier. What we do in the foundation is to sensitise people on water, sanitation and hygiene and we have been doing that for almost four years now.`` Desmond said.
When asked why he could not continue with his personal money to fund the organisation even as a Glo ambassador, he quickly said that it’s still his money where talking about here. ``For three years plus, I have used my money to fund these projects that I am into. Foundations are supposed to generate money, for instance other bigger organisations or individuals are supposed to now contribute and say ‘do this for this course’ but at the end of the day, it’s difficult to get anyone to contribute.
Running the project on my own is somehow tasking because each programme you go for runs into millions and it will run me out of the market. But we are picking up gradually. We partner with different NGOs as well to see what we can accomplish,`` he concluded.

This is not new to hear from you actors asking for help from wealthy just to backdate and upgrade. Fvvvvvv! meanwhile, y'all have personally wasted those losses/millions with your careless extravagant spendings an not by helping anybody as claimed. It's high time you guys stop decieving us with your unfounded foundations and let the favoured ones help the real helpless. Pmtewwwwwww! Foundation ko roofing ni! Reply this thread

Na person force u? Abi na me go give u money? If u feel u can't fund d so called foundation again,better close it down! R*ubbish! That's how u people go about looking for whom to defraud. Foundation,Foundation,Foundation..everybody now owns a foundation,yet there's nothing positive to show from it,except Chika ike who shared exercise books & school bags to children...GASKIA.

Sombody ws complainin.
Dat evry celebs in nigeria wants to own a clothing line,to become a CEO n oda stuffs too.Me don't see it as a big deal,cos d western Celebs own diff biz apart frm d mony dey earn wit deir talents.If Desmond has a foundation I don't see anytin wrong in it.D only tin we shld be concern abt if it is real n not a way of embezzling money.

I think its a very good cause. I also think the state of Nigeria has reached a stage where individuals need to change the destiny of this nation. Desmond seems like a pretty sincere person and kudos to him for the intiative.
As for that Lalaland, what positive thing are you doing in life that you are insulting people that try? In fact what are you doing besides creating whole threads of dialogue arguing with yourself under different ID's.(Someone Somewhere,lalaland,lolo,senior,chyke,firstlady,nneoma,B¡t¡ng Z£dd to€¥ etc)...this is so sad Reply this thread

You form a Foundation, and you name it after ONE man, and you want other men/women to contribute. Let the ONE man the "Foundation" is named after put up the dough. Thats the essence of self naming a "Foundation". Then again, Nigeria is mostly a sewage dump, with sewage mentality and personalities. Reply this thread
