Dr. Laure B. Ndeutchoua, Founder and CEO
Dr. Laure Ndeutchoua was born in Cameroon where she spent her childhood. Her call and vision to be blessing to others came while she was living with her uncle. She lost her father at the age of 9, leaving her mother with 6 children. Her mother (late) could not care for all her children and since in the tradition, “when a child fails, it is the mother’s fault, she did not want to get in trouble. Therefore, her mother decided to send her to leave with her uncle. Despite the fact that she did not live in a situation of poverty, she recollects and describes that time and situation as poverty according to her as a child, which she named today a Mental Poverty due to many personal experiences. She grew up with a deep appreciation of her live and believes that God has giving her a mission to empower others to succeed. Nobody chooses to be born in poverty, she states, as poverty can be mental or economic. Each human being living in poverty encounters personal experiences that defines their situation. She then made the promise to herself to carry on this mission by offering to orphans, underprivileged, abandoned, underserved, and rejected children, young men and women and their familiesopportunities to not only survive, but thrive as leaders of tomorrow.
