Letter from the Founder and President
Ejemen Foundation was set up in the year 2003 in memory of my mother
Princess Janet Ejemen Obamogie. The goals of the Foundation are:
improve the socio-economic status of the orphans of HIV/AIDS victims
in Africa and
To improve the health care delivery system in Africa at the grass
Foundation plans to achieve these goals by reaching out to these
orphans directly (cutting out middlemen and bureaucracies) with
the help of trained field and case workers and providing comprehensive
care and support through the foundations medical mission group
in collaboration with local health care workers.
Foundation will start its work initially in Edo State, Nigeria and
thereafter use the model to reach out to orphans in other parts
of Sub-Sahara Africa.
is my hope that everybody will contribute in one form or another
to reach out to these orphans. As you all know, AIDS is destroying
families in this part of the world rapidly. Orphans have become
destitutes and are stigmatized. The burden of care has become too
great for their extended family members (usually grandparents) who
either have limited or no resources or have some other pressing
issues to cope with.
is therefore imperative that we donate generously to help these
children who are innocent victims of the AIDS pandemic. No amount
of money is too small. Volunteers are also needed.
your support and co-operation, we will be able to fulfill our mission,
which is to instill joy, dignity, and wellness into the changing
faces of Africans.
