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 those who are socioeconomically disadvantaged, at both an individual and community level, through education, entrepreneurship, and sustainable intervention programs.
Since its inception in 2001, The Fourthman Foundation is one vital source of spiritual anchor for those in need. The inspiration for the FMF is from the biblical story of Daniel and His three friends in the Babylonian kingdom (Daniel 3:23). In the story of Daniel 3:23, A Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, made a decree that everyone in the province of Babylon must bow down and worship an image made of gold as their god. Three immigrant young men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow down to the false god worshipped by the King.
Nebuchadnezzar got furious and ordered that the three men be thrown into a fiery furnace. Miraculously, the three young 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 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.
Our mission is to serve as a spiritual anchor and a source of hope to the individual and communities around the world through global outreaches, campaigns and education. Helping people is our God-ordained duty.
Our vision is to empower socioeconomically disadvantaged people especially young adults, to become spiritually, mentally, socioeconomically, and financially whole.
