Several years ago FOH start a youth empowerment program call H.E.L.P (Healthcare Leaders in Prevention) Youth Training Program. The program was started to address deaths and injuries from youth violence that is a major health problem in many parts of the world. Worldwide some 250 000 homicides occur among youth 10-29 years of age each year – 41% of the annual total number of homicides globally. For each young person killed, 20-40 more sustain injuries requiring hospital treatment. Youth violence has a serious, often lifelong, impact on a person's psychological and social functioning. Youth violence is a public health issue.


H.E.L.P Youth Training Program first introduced at Piney Woods Country Life School in Piney Woods, Mississippi to youth ages 8 to 17, with a curriculum that focuses on 5 problem areas that affect youth worldwide, Respect, Acceptance, Violence, Stress and Money.

The technique used to teach these empowerment skills is Reflexology, a non-traditional healthcare therapy that is administered to the feet and hands. Reflexology is a noninvasive technique that is an innovative way to teach health and wellness education and introduce our youth to a new vocational and career skill.

Njideka Olatunde, founder of Focus On Healing, says “as a member of the baby boomer generation, we need to connect with the Millennial and Cyber Generation (ages 8 to 17) and teach them skills with support, encouragement and a listening ear to help them become self-sufficient and successful as Leaders, Teachers, and Healers who can make a difference in the world”.

Focus On Healing is raising funds for this project. You can help by making a donation, sharing your expertise or referring our program to youth organizations. You are invited to join FOH on this mission to help the Millennial and Cyber Generation build a legacy of passing on generational health and wealth instead of generational illness and poverty to remove the label of being a nation set on destroying our youth.
