Philanthropy Today ...How Chief Richard Lamai Is Touching lives of Youths
It is often said in the Philantropist world that " Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give and No one has ever become poor by giving so never get tired of doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest parts of their hearts"
Such can be said of Chief Richard Lamai who is reputed to a lover of seeing youths rise up to their full potentials in life
Take his Essay competition for youths for example... A worthy venture and the landmark achievements made so far by igniting the creative potentials in young adults and children have been famous enough to be reckoned with.
Authors in School Creative Club, a subsidiary of Udukhotse Foundation partners both individuals and organizations to nurture young minds and students in creativity. It has been a connecting factor and a smooth bridge between the principled elites and young people willing to explore great potentials in various aspects of life.**
Members of the immediate Community where the club was first established have deemed it fit to invest heavily in championing the cause of making distinctive leaders amongst the next generations.
