Daniel Ogechi Akujobi Memorial Foundation (DOAMF)
The Back to School Program (BTS) is a DOAMF program which has been operating since 2006 to help poor families meet school costs for their wards/children. The Foundation’s BTS Program equip children in primary/secondary schools with vital tools to start a new school year.
Items such as school uniforms, shoes, school bags, stationery and other necessary educational materials are distributed by the Foundation free through partnerships with corporate organizations and kind individuals.
The L.E.A.D Program is an annual event that takes the Foundation to public schools in Nigeria. The goal of the L.E.A.D Program is to encourage children to aspire to become better students and responsible citizens. The L.E.A.D program aims to create a new generation of future leaders and achievers.
One of the daunting challenges in the Nigerian Educational System is the lack of reading culture in schools, especially among public school students. Research has shown that no society can develop beyond the knowledge base of its citizens. The poor reading culture prevalent in public schools needs to be reversed as it inhibits the country’s economic development.
DOAM Foundation addresses this issue by establishing and equipping libraries in public schools to promote a book culture aimed at improving the reading and writing habits of students, in addition to developing their communication skills.
This is an opportunity for high net worth individuals and corporate organizations to contribute to the future of our children in a significant manner.
The essay competition was introduced by the Foundation as a strategy to further improve the usage of the libraries donated to schools. It fosters healthy competition among the students of beneficiary schools. Excellent students are awarded with prizes and certificates.
In a bid to ensure that the less privileged children & youths in the society gain access to qualitative education, the Foundation offers scholarship opportunities to orphans, less privileged, vulnerable but intelligent children that are in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions across the country to achieve their potentials.
Our first set of University graduates were produced in 2012!
