We desire to see a world that reflects peace, love and joy

Our History

The ‘Madam Thessy Nkadi Isemede (HELP) Foundation’ a.k.a Thessy Isemede Foundation is a non-governmental organization (registered with CAC Nigeria- CAC/IT/NO 73325) that is focused on the education, economic empowerment and physical enhancement of the less privileged in our society. The organization was birthed in 2013 in honour of late Madam Theresa Nkadi Isemede (1945-2008) Madam Thessy dreamt of a world that reflected peace, love and joy. Her greatest desire was to put ‘A SMILE’ on people’s face: one person at a time and in whatever means she could. This passion was communicated by action and words to her children so much so that 5 years after her home calling and in keeping with the promise made to her by her children, the Madam Thessy Nkadi Isemede Foundation was birthed as a testimony to her life and vision.

Our Goals

 The mission of the Foundation is driven by two major goals: to empower and to inspire.


The foundation by its activities hope to assist in providing the necessary resources and support for uplifting and activating into reality, the hopes and aspirations of those who otherwise have no hope; thus helping them actualize their dreams and God given potentials in life.


The truth is that no one individual or organization alone can completely deal with the social ills of our time; but a little here and a little there, one individual at a time, and a milestone would have been achieved, leaving scores of smiling faces behind. So the foundation seeks to inspire people all over the world to reach out to the less privileged in our communities.
