Who We Are
REAL difference for people in real need.
Future Prowess Islamic Foundation was instituted to deal with the challenges brought about by the insurgency in the North East with the mission of dealing with the problem of meeting the psychological, educational, spiritual and other developmental needs of children and widows as affected by the insurgency.
It was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission on 27th February 2007 with Certificate of Registration Number BN0024478 (MD).
The School was also granted Certificate of Registration of Private School by the Borno State Ministry of Education, issued on the 30th January, 2008 to establish and operate a private nursery & primary school. Recently, a second school was opened in Fori in Maiduguri Metropolis to center for orphans and widows.
Protecting the rights and wellbeing of EVERY child
Promoting the right and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do.
Supporting Hope programs for children in North-East Nigeria.
Reaching the most vunerable Women, Widows & children.
An estimated 1 million children have been displaced, and too many of them have lost their parents to violence. The School has kept its doors open throughout the crisis, even at the height of the violence in Maiduguri, where every other school was closed. The insurgency remains one of world’s bloodiest conflicts, which has killed tens of thousands, driven and displaced two million or more from their homes
The need for rehabilitation and resettlement is critical to help the vulnerable groups of children, largely orphans and widows in need of humanitarian support. Recognizing this fact, our intervention programmes constantly strive to solve the challenges of health, child labour, hunger, illiteracy, diseases, poverty, capacity building & empowerment programmes for the widows.
empowerment & Partnerships
We are here not for income, but for outcome
We understand the importance of educational and economic empowerment.
As many are left with no means of livelihoods, thus we run an economic support and empowerment programme through vocational training, entrepreneurship, and grants. Currently, over 3600 have benefited and fully empowered. To this end, the Foundation’s new site is designed to increase the carrying capacities by admitting new orphans and fully engage widows in livelihood capacity building and income generating activities. These facilities need to be equipped to full capacity and there are plans in place for additional (future project) buildings and facilities as enrollment increases and funding sources improve.
Our focal areas for support and partnership are in the areas of – Education & Human Capital Development, Agriculture, Healthcare, Social Cohesion, Livelihoods Development, etc. These will be sought within governments, civil society groups, the private sector and corporate, development partners, and other stakeholders in the support of child development and humanitarian support across the world.
Currently, the Foundation is in partnership with so many organisations and agencies as – the UNHCR, UNICEF, ICRC, the Borno State Government, Presidential Committee on the Northeast Initiative, (PCNI); the University of Maiduguri and the Federal Neural Hospital, who provide psycho-socio welfare support to orphans and their parents who have suffered terrible trauma as a result of the conflict. The care is funded by the Swiss Government. The Foundation also engages the services of concerned groups as psychologists, therapist and medical personnel in providing bespoke services. Also, moral guidance by inter-faith counselors is always at hand.
