Before we explore Illya’s present occupation regarding Askillya and its platform; we need to take a journey into his upbringing and humble beginnings. With a servant’s heart Illya recalls his love for his grandmother Mary Ann Wright who was a local and global humanitarian in her community of Oakland California. She was the founder of The Mary Ann Wright Foundation. Her organization was born when she was awakened from a dream one morning in 1980 saying, “The Lord told me to feed the people.” At that moment, she began working from her kitchen using her $237.00 social security allowance to feed and clothe children and adults living in nearby parks, under freeway and Oakland city streets. Over time the Mary Ann Wright Foundation’s capacity to feed the people grew exponentially.
