The YPI Foundation was convened in October 2006 and is a registered charity organization. The YPI is all about making positive and lasting impact on the society through education intervention initiatives, most especially for abandoned children in homes, in orphanages and hospices.

YPI launched the Project Desiree Initiative in September 2008 by starting an Educational Fund to sponsor selected children.

Between 2008 and 2010, YPI held 3 annual fundraising events to fund the education of 8 kids from the the Light of Hope Orphanage in Akute, Ogun and the Child Lifeline Home in Ikorodu.
