The D&Ksuomi Foundation is a non-profit organization, started in the city of Tampere Finland, DRC Congo and Kwara in Nigeria by Deborah K.Funmi Mupapa .
The main strategy is based on giving back to humanity especially in Africa, where the need for care, love and peace cannot be over emphasized.
Therefore, having come together from far and wide the African continent, we cried, fought together, and came up with a solution to alleviate the wails of African women and particularly the young girls.
The main goal of the organization being to empower women. Using online as a tool of connection to fight poverty, by creating a platform where women can build on their self energy.
The core mission of D&KSuomi is to empower women through Micro-enterprise, Education, Jobs and Skills acquisition, Enforcement of their Fundamental Rights, Financial and Emotional Aid, and more distinctly assisting women and girls in war-torn regions.
Deborah is an Entrepreneur, Inspirational Speaker, Author, Gospel Singer and Humanitarian who is passionate about providing a secure future for African people who are in dire need, through her non-profit organization ‘Empowerment of African women’ (D&K Foundation), based in Finland, DRC Congo and Nigeria. She has been active in various activities in both Finland and Africa.
The origin of EOAW which is a segment of D&Ks Foundation was sparked from the very personal life experience of Deborah K.Funmi Mupapa. As a young girl growing up in Nigeria, she was physically and sexually abused by her step father at the age of 12, though she endured numerous hardships while growing up she always kept a positive outlook.
After several years of emotional healing, Deborah is strong, hopeful, and a happy woman today.
Deborah has a strong desire to help other women in Africa that are undergoing similar experiences and not able to speak out.
It is from this desire that the Empowerment of African Women Organization, D&Ks Foundation was created.
The D&K foundation is aimed at changing and restating the mindset of the world at large concerning Africa, D&K gives a non-political platform for women and young girls to achieve their personal growth and development. That’s why it is laying a strong foundation for women and girls as leaders of the future letting them know that they can make a difference in their lives.
