THE MACLOUD FOUNDATION

About

MobilizeThe Foundation seeks to mobilize all possible resources to empower the youth, women, the marginalized and vulnerable members of the society

Advocacy We endeavor to be the voice of reason in advocacy for the rights of children, women and to be proactive in protecting and defending the said rights.

Changing the mindset Women, the youth and persons living with disabilities the world over have been made to believe that there are some job specifications that are not meant for them. Most of them have fallen into a state of despair in their quest to earn a livelihood with majority women taking subordinate roles in the society, the youth resorting to drugs and substance abuse and persons living with disability resorting to begging in the streets for their daily bread. Most of them are resigned to their states with little or no effort at seeking change. The foundation seeks to help them re-write their stories and history of defeat by making them believe in their power to change their stories and transforming their mindsets into instruments of success.

Leadership The youth and women form the majority of the world’s population and are therefore directly responsible for addressing socio-economic issues of the world. It is for this reason that The Macloud Foundation under its Mentorship programme for the Youth and Women seeks to empower them to be able to voice their concerns and be proactive in mitigating issues affecting the Youth and Women in our society. This can only become a reality if we support and encourage the youth and women to take up leadership positions and help push the agenda that gender is not a limiting factor!

Optimization The Foundation seeks to optimize home-grown resources to find solutions to socio-economic issues affecting the society

Uplift The Foundation has designed tailor-made programmes for poverty eradication and mitigation of socio-economic issues affecting the society. We seek to uplift the living standards of the vulnerable members of our society

Dignity In order for the girl-child to compete favorably with the boy-child, they need a level playing ground free from limiting factors. Girls from poor families often lose in on important opportunities especially when such opportunities come knocking at a time they are experiencing their monthly flow. Scores of girls in developing countries miss out on concepts taught during their absence from school due to menstruation related challenges. It is for this reason that the Foundation through the Dada programme seeks to protect the dignity and pride of the girl-child by helping them stay in school and achieve their optimal potentialities
