Wellness Wednesdays give street residents a chance to pause, rest and connect with the FOA family
Ebenezer has enough energy and bright smiles to bring life to people wherever he goes. He is kind, hardworking, a deep thinker and intelligent. Ebenezer is passionate about Christ, football and people. His goal is to be able to reflect the values and nature of Jesus Christ as fully as he can.
Eben graduated in the top percentile of his class at American International School and exemplified leadership as captain of the football and basketball teams. He was elected to give the keynote address at his graduation for his academic prowess and fine character.
While in high school, Eben was inspired by FOA’s activities and committed to joining its street outreach programs. Eben was a favourite with children in street situations when he served meals, coordinated activities and had meaningful conversations with them.
Eben worked as one of the founding interns at Norviwo Community Center. He taught lessons and supported the first batch of FOA children to be transitioned to Norviwo.
As the communications specialist, Eben is responsible for managing FOA’s digital presence and telling stories of resilience and hope. He sees his role as an opportunity to educate people about their misconceptions and stereotypes about children in street situations.
Eben believes that there are a lot of deficits in the Christian's goal of showing the love of Christ to the world. “In Future of Africa, I see the commitment of our organisation to showcase that love in so many ways. This is why I believe in what we do.”
Every moment a child is off the streets and in the classroom is another moment for the Future of Africa.
