In 2013, Cornelius had some hearty discussion with his wife(Emerald) about the rate of poverty in the country and how ones talents are lost because no one cares. These discussions led to the establishment of Our Nation Marshal,which had it focus on providing skill acquisition projects for children with the aim of equipping them with life skills in order to prepare them for future self reliance.
Emerald and Cornelius sought every available means to bring this needed change in their little way, knowing that “the reason for poverty is having nothing to offer or when there are many supplies for what you are offering”. After Emerald passed beyond the grave on the 23rd of march 2015, the dream for Our Nation Marshal was almost lost, until it was re-awaken by another hearty discussion by Cornelius with Raphael Okyere in Ghana and Patrick from Germany. This is where the ONM dream was reborn as Maven Heart.These young men started the journey to break the ancient cycle of poverty through real Education and awaking the entrepreneurial spirit. Helping people to help themselves, through the act of coaching and mentoring young Africans to learn “how to catch their Fishes not to be fed with Fishes”. They believe that what mavericks (as we prefer to call our students) in the developing world need most are not academic attains as such, but rather life skills which will boost their confidence, lay the foundation for personal fulfillment and as a result, foster prosperity and well being for everyone.
