Information available to YEN.com.gh indicates that the NGO has been in existence for the past seven years with the purpose to give back to society and create opportunities for people to do good for society.
"Due to modernity and economic hardship, people are less sensitive towards their society. It is our belief that when people are involved in doing communal work together, they tend to be sensitive towards the society," Ibrahim said.
The foundation that is made up of vibrant youth indicates that they wish to approach the country's problems as most people only complain about the issues.
In one of its recent programmes, the team came together to provide free breakfast and use the opportunity to attract and take data on beneficiaries.
This way, the foundation is able to provide them with training in computer science, soap making, ice cream,sugar-making, carpentry, welding, and capital to start their own enterprise.
Abraham Smiles Foundation also has a project named Don't Throw It Away where they collect clothes from people and donate them to the less privileged in society.
