Stella became a Humanitarian because she hates to see people live in poverty or suffer and also feels the need to use the voice she has to speak up for people who can not. In order to alleviate the suffering of the less privileged, and help create a better future for others, she set up the Stella Damasus Arts (SDA) Foundation, a non- profit organization established to provide economic, intellectual and emotional support to the society, using the Arts as its primary tool. The Foundation launched its Free Arts Training Program, and opened its doors to its first set of students on the 16th of May 2011.

Stella’s zeal to fight for the rights of women and young girls around the world led her to create a mentorship program called ADIVA which helps women and young girls unlock their potentials using God’s word and principles thus becoming the best they can ever be. With the ADIVA Mentoring Program Stella has had 2 very successful meetings in Abuja (Nigeria) and one fun and intimate hangout in Atlanta, Georgia USA. This same zeal for women and young girls also led Stella to make a video regarding the issue of legalizing Child Marriage in Nigeria which in turn led to her invitation to Aljazeera Network THE STREAM for a Live discussion with Senator Yerima. She also released a video on the 11th of October 2013 in Honor of the International Day of the Girl Child which once again gained her an invitation to The World Bank to speak on Domestic Violence.
