Macfoy advised participants to endeavours to be living in a financial integrity where by their actions would be congruent with their financial plans.

She said that before a person could maintain financial integrity that such person should learn how to manage money,  do not be pressured to give, do not ignore your finances, do not be afraid of saving and also trust yourself.

In her opening speech, the President of BOMARAH Foundation, Hajiya Bola Muse, said the foundation, an NGO, was a brainchild of her, with vision out of kindhearted nature and empathy towards the less privileged and persons living with disabilities.

“I began the philanthropy work in 1996, by paying visits and organising parties for inmates, motherless babies homes, as well as students of special needs, especially hearing and visually impaired persons.

“At the end of each visits various gifts were distributed as a way of spreading love and care because of the strong belief that these ones deserve our love and care.

“BOMARAH foundations was registered in 2002 and re-affirms its commitments to Education, Advocacy and Empowerment.

“Some of the achievements of the foundation included – scholarship to students in   secondary schools to the universities level, as well as inmates, empowerment programmes to widows, donation of educational materials to schools among others,” Muse said.

She thanked those who had identified with BOMARAH foundation, which had yielded tremendous success to the organisation.
