Imagine a world where children sleep on empty stomachs; imagine if your 6 year old child would have to walk over 5
miles everyday to get to a “shed” called school; imagine your child not able to sit through class because he or
she did not eat last night; imagine that he or she would have to leave school early, risking their education, to sell fruits
and goods at the market, just so their family can eat one solid meal for the day; just imagine living a life of no hope or
even second chances?
This is the story
of many everyday African children and their parents who struggle to give them the best life possible.
WHO WE ARE:
Adassa-Adumori Foundation, Inc. mission is to develop
and support sustainable projects that create significant positive change in children and families who are growing up in circumstances
of social and economic disadvantages in 3rd world countries, one community at a time.
While many stories
have evolved from the heart of Africa, this is a story of an African princess who after 23 years of living outside of her community;
returns to “repair the bridge.” It is a story of hope and new beginnings for underprivileged communities in 3rd
world countries and a call to action across the globe to reach out and save lives.
The Adassa – Adumori Foundation is a non-for-profit
organization established by Princess Fumi Ogunleye Hancock, with advisory support from her parents, Prince & Princess
Ademola Ogunleye, the reigning King of Emure - Ekiti, a Yoruba tribe in the Western region of Africa- King Emmanuel Adebayo,
Ms Yolanda Shields, Vice President of Adassa, Inc. and other well wishers both in Africa and the US.

descent, she is aware that the issue of poverty is a global problem which deserves a global solution. We acknowledge that
it indeed takes a village to raise a child”. In this spirit, we are extending our hands to our global community for

by providing an atmosphere of hope, healing and restoration.
