Since inception, the Freedom Foundation has transformed and positively impacted several lives in impoverished communities including but not limited to Ejigbo, Ijora, Iwaya, Bariga and Somolu, led to the creation of this video journal which documents 10 years of my team and I’s experiences in these areas’.
