Educational Scholarship

Although primary education is officially free in Nigeria, about 10.5 million children are out of school. That’s the highest number in the world. Only 61% of 6–11-year-olds in Nigeria regularly attend primary schools. With the impact of the covid 19, a lot more children have been forced to leave school due to drastic increase in poverty rate. Many families have lost their source of livelihood and can no longer afford to eat.

In most of the communities across Nigeria, children are made to work in other to support their families and this results to them having to drop out of school. Its due to this reality that SOF is working relentlessly to ensure that we help put children back in schools through our fully funded education scholarship. We work in impoverished communities in South-South Nigeria, providing them with not only free education but also free food. We encourage you to partner with us in providing quality education to Nigeria’s children.

Free Medicals & Health Care

Millions of Nigerians do not have access to quality health care. The impact of the covid 19 has worsened the situation. Nigeria has a very weak and grossly underfunded health care system. The government does not place much value on health care as they invest less than 10% of the budget in the health sector. Most Nigerians pay for health bills from their pocket, and this is particularly difficult considering the fact that almost 100 million Nigerians live in poverty. Equally disheartening is the fact that Nigeria has very poor doctor to patient ratio. For every 10,000 Nigerians, there are only four doctors. With respect to the current state of Nigeria’s health sector, SOF is committed to providing rural communities and the less privileged with free quality medical services and facilities. From time to time, we organize free medical outreaches in villages and communities. You can partner with us in helping Nigerian’s access quality medical care and services

Free Feeding & Housing

Extreme poverty has affected almost every aspect of child development in Nigeria including nutrition, hygiene, safety and education. Even though Nigeria is Africa’s wealthiest country, over 83 million of her citizens live in poverty. Due to this situation, most children living in Nigeria cannot afford basic human needs like food, shelter, and safety. In 2020, UNICEF estimated that 2 million children in Nigeria suffer from acute malnutrition which has led to stunted growth in most children. Contaminated drinking water and unsanitary living conditions account for 70,000 annual deaths of children under the age of five. The situation is a dire one and it requires urgent attention. SOF is helping to fight malnutrition by investing in free feeding programmes for children. We also provide free shelter for families in the communities where we work. Be a part of this noble cause by partnering with us to provide food for children in impoverished communities

Economic Empowerment Programmes

We provide income generation opportunities for people at the grassroots. Currently, 33.3% or 23.2 million of the about 70 million people who should be working in Nigeria are out of work. One major reason for this is the critically poor state of our economy. Nigeria’s economy has been in a terrible shape for the past five years since we went into a recession in 2016. Due to the high level of unemployment in the nation, most young people lack a means of survival and are easily lured into bad vices and violence. Through our skills acquisition trainings and entrepreneurship programmes, we empower youths and women to create a better livelihood.
