The Gamesville Foundation was incorporated to promote the values-building aspect of game-play, and to provide recreation and aid to humans that are onset by hardship, old age, loneliness or disability. The foundation supports charities that work directly with disadvantaged and/or abused children. To improve the lives of the children, the organization organizes games and provide recreation for the children, exploring value subjects like self-esteem, teamwork, strategy, entrepreneurship, mathematics, patience, forgiveness, and purpose through the games and/or in discussion sessions. It held an Ayo tournament in 2019 across three (3) charities and over 500 children and treated the semi-finalists to a recreational day outing, with the final three (3) places winning a laptop, a tablet, and a bicycle, respectively. The foundation materially supports its partner charities via occasional donations of food, personal, and utility items, and by organizing fundraisers to cover longer term needs.
