Rosemary recalled that she came from an humble background where one gives out from the little one has to those who don’t have at all based on their mother’s kind gesture and sense of humanity in sharing with others.
In her words, “Actually, it’s a family foundation founded in our mother’s name, Ladi Jacob, and basically the foundation is about giving back to the community, giving back to the society, I came from very humble background, we might experience how I was raised, where I was raised, the environment I was raised and I was able to make out something out of my life.”
She added: “I decided that, whatever I made, no matter how little it is, based on the training I was given by my mum, because my mum, no matter how small it is (that) she has, she always wants to share with others, she does not like to eat alone.”
She maintained that the Transformer donation and installation will go along way to bring succur to the people of Tungan Kwaso who have been in darkness for a long time, most especially the small business men and women who needed electricity to carry out most of their activities.
She also used the opportunity of the occasion to pray for their mother’s good health, long life and abundance riches to do more in giving back to the society in her usual ways.
