We Aspire to Empower
How it all began...
Etta Lloyd Walker Foundation was founded in honor of Mrs. Etta Jane Lloyd Walker, whose life passion has been dedicated to saving the lives of young girls and boys through education, mentorship, and love.
Known as the “Mother of the Community” in her hometown Kakata, Margibi county, Etta Jane Lloyd Walker helped – even took into her home – young people in the surrounding area who were in need and distress, such as pregnant teens, rape victims or children who were victims of domestic abuse.
These acts of compassion inspired the creation of a non-profit organization named after her, the Etta Lloyd Walker Foundation which has as its goal to provide services that make a tangible, long-term difference in young people’s lives. Whether providing basic essentials such as food, clothes and medicines, providing mentorship to at-risk youth, helping young single mothers overcome obstacles to financial independence or setting up scholarship funds for children, ELWF has as its goal to provide help that makes a tangible, long-term difference in young people’s lives.
