One_Voice Initiative (OVi) is a registered NGO established on the 5th of March 2016.
Many children are born into the world on a daily basis. Some have parents, others don’t get that luxury. Some are born perfect, others have to live with disabilities. Some get love and care, Others?..Not so much. Now these others can we say they’re unlucky ? or that we are lucky? or should we say its punishment for sins of their parents? Questions we always ask.
Every human was brought to life to fulfill a certain purpose, no matter the circumstances surrounding their birth or life as a Whole, Some get to fulfill these purpose and again some don’t. Sometime, its not their Fault, its cause life hasn’t been fair to them.
We as Human have a compassionate nature to us, to help a brother, assist a sister, put a smile on a child’s face .and that’s what OVI is all about…… Being the voice.
One_Voice Initiative is all about being a voice to the Voiceless, making somebody’s life better, exploiting the compassionate nature of fellow humans to help somebody fulfill that purpose in life especially people life has been unfair to.
The coming events and the next edition of the IOT promises to be fun.
