The Fourth Man Foundation(TFM) is an international faith-based organization, founded by Obinna and Ebere Okoye, with a mission to empower young people especially socioeconomically disadvantaged persons, both at an individual and community level through education, entrepreneurship, and sustainable intervention programs.

Since its inception in 2001, TFM has always made it a priority to fulfill the higher calling of God’s divine purpose on earth. The inspiration for the FMF is from The biblical story of Daniel and His three friends in the Babylonian kingdom (Daniel 3:23). The Fourth Man in this historical event is our Lord Jesus Christ and the TFM is built upon this foundation.  On this foundation, we will carry out the calling of the Almighty God in Christ to minister to those in need spiritually, financially, and mentally.

 

The Fourth Man Foundation (TFM) was the vision of founders, Obinna and Ebere Okoye. Since our inception 17 years ago in 2001, TFM has always made it a priority to fulfil a higher calling to God’s divine purpose on earth.

The Fourth Man in the TFM Foundation is Our Lord Jesus Christ. TFM was founded based on the Biblical story of Daniel 3:23 (The Fiery Furnace).  In the story of Daniel 3:23, it is based on the characters of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.  Nebuchadnezzar was the king at the time, and he made it so that everyone in the province of Babylon must bow down and worship an image made of gold as their god.  But the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow down to a false god worshipped by the King. Instead the three Jewish men were instead thrown into the furnace.  Miraculously, the three Jewish men of God did not only survive the furnace, but were seen worshipping their God in the midst of the flame, with a Fourth man!  This astonished the King so much so that he made a new law in the land that the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is the One True God.  The Fourth Man in this story is Jesus Christ, who stood beside the three men whilst the fires burned all around them.

The Fourth Man (Jesus Christ) is our Foundation behind the Fourth Man Foundation.  TFM believes that it is only with Jesus Christ that our foundation is laid.  And on this foundation, we will carry out the calling of the Almighty God in Jesus Christ to minister to those in times of need.  TFM is one vital source of spiritual anchor for those in need. We empower communities around the world through global outreach, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy to provide a source of hope to immigrant and socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals and families. Helping people is our God ordained duty, and helping those who cannot help themselves.
