    The Adassa Adumori Foundation, Inc. has partnered with His Royal Majesty - King Emmanuel Adebayo, the current King of Emure Kingdom to provide the people of Emure Kingdom:
     
    1.) Scholarships for children from underprivileged families in Emure Kingdom. These scholarships will help keep children in school, provide school supplies and uniforms from primary school level to Secondary school level.
     
    2.) The Foundation is currently working on setting the very first Community Library in Ekiti State as part of the initiative: "Readers Are Leaders." The government of Ekiti State has provided the building and we are ready to make the dream happen.
     
    3.) The Foundation will also be breaking ground on an Enrichment Center for the Community. The community has provided the land for this project. Though they do not have the financial means to make this happen, they are reaching out for help and are working hard to make the best of what they have.

    4.) Adassa Adumori Foundation implemented a Leadership Training Conference in January 2009 at Emure Ekiti.
