How do you feel when you see them sitting in wheel chairs, using their white canes, begging for money or food? Sad right? Our guest today is one fine gentleman who has dedicated to making them (less privileged) feel better. He is in the person of Martin Owusu who owns Hope for the Living Foundation – a charitable organization with the aim of showing love to the less privileged.
MBA: Hello chief, Good afternoon and welcome to The Meet Bra Amuah Show. Do tell us about yourself?
Martin: Good afternoon boss. Thank you very much for this opportunity. I really appreciate it. My name is Martin Owusu and I’m an entrepreneur and philanthropist. I’m constantly dedicated to making the lives or the less privileged better.
MBA: That’s great. How was your childhood life Martin? So, what do you actually do as an entrepreneur?
Martin: As a child, my dream was to become a footballer and I was constantly doing anything every footballer would to be a great. Things changed but I believe God has a plan for everyone. I’m into multimedia. I’m a photographer
MBA: So, who is your favorite footballer?
Martin: My favorite is Lionel Messi.
MBA: Oh cool, now photography is booming oh. Then you are rich ohhh. Anyway, you said you’ve dedicated to making the lives of the less privileged better. Can you expatiate on that.?
Martin: Hahaha. I believe everyone needs somebody no matter the level you’re in life. I’ve taken it as decision to put some smiles on the faces of the less privileged and through that, I have set up a charitable organization called Hope for the Living foundation. Our aim is to show love to the less privileged by helping them in any little way we can.
MBA: Martin you are impacting lives ohhh. God bless you for that.
Martin: Amen bro. God bless you too.
MBA: What do you do as leisure? Tell us all about the foundation. Are you solely doing it or you have partnership?
Martin: At my leisure, I hang around with friends. For the foundation, we need to partner with other organizations in order to be very effective. I believe in partnerships and so we have partnerships with other organizations although it was started solely.
MBA: Which partnerships if I may ask?
Martin: Partnerships in the sense that, we help each other with various projects when there’s the need to. Some of these organizations are: Youth and Future incorporated, Elirant Foundation, Love Foundation Club and Crexxel Hope Foundation.
MBA: Giving back to community indeed. So, what inspired you to do all these?
Martin: 😊I’ve had a burning desire to give back to less privileged since I grew up. It’s a passion. It’s something I’m committed to do with my life.
MBA: Martin, what challenges have you experienced so far concerning the foundation?
Martin: The basis of being able to reach out to the less privileged, most of the time, you need finances. This is what drives the foundation most of the time. Financing our projects is a key problem but I strongly believe things will get better as time goes on.
MBA: Oh sure. I think more of social media management would help you achieve that. I know there are good people out there, who will want to help. How can one reach you if he or she wants to help?

MBA: So, what has been your most joyful moment in helping the less privileged. What’s the way forward for the foundation.?
Martin: My most joyful moment in helping the less privileged was when we (Hope for the Living Foundation) did our first project at the Rising Star Home at Dodowa. The way forward for the foundation, we are looking at touching more lives in our subsequent projects. That’s what we are committed to doing.
MBA: My readers want to know about your love life.? Some are single are want to get hooked up.
Martin: 😂😂 😂😂I’m single.
MBA: Are you searching 😎? Because they have their Bluetooth on ohhh so that you can pair
Martin: 😂😂Oh no I’m not searching
MBA: Esɛ wo ara. How was your Snr high school experience?
Martin: High school experience was fun though, I was a day student of Presec-legon. My best moments were when we’ll go to the field on Fridays to play football with the other classes. It was exciting.
MBA: This soccer dream is still in you I can feel it. Any plans for that as well?
Martin: No plan for the soccer dream. Actually, it’s been out of me since I completed high school. I don’t remember the last time I played football or watched a full match Surprisingly I can’t even mention the lineup of one particular team unlike formally. I prefer watch wrestling to football now.
MBA: Eiii aberantie should I be afraid of you. Because this your muscles if you catch me in a steel cage it wouldn’t be nice at all.
Martin: hahaha oh no don’t be afraid of me. Small muscles ohh
MBA: I must say you are doing great work out there. God richly bless you for impacting lives. I hope others are touched so that they can give to help more. Any last words for our readers?
Martin: Amen. My last words, I want to encourage anyone who has started something on his or her own. Do not get fed up, do not give up. No matter how long it takes, if you keep committed to your dream, you’ll make it. It’s not always going to be smooth but never give up. You can make it
MBA: Lovely readers. You heard the gentleman. He ended by saying “You can make it.”
