29 Nov 2022 Engagement with Nsugbe Youths (Pics), as the OCI Foundation plans more sustainable empowerment interventions in Anambra, Nigeria (28/11/22)
The OCI Foundation’s Social/Public Welfare and Empowerment team has continued to engage youngsters from Nsugbe, the hometown of its President and Founder, Dr Chris Ifediora. The latest engagement, held on Monday, November 28, 2022, was designed to identify the needs of the young men and women, as part of a larger effort to organise an impactful and sustainable support package for them.
The OCI Foundation’s team was led by Mrs Anthonia Ngozi CHIGBATA, the Foundation’s Director of Empowerment Activities. She was accompanied by Mr Chinonso Maku, Mr Jude Obiezeazu, and Miss Nzube OGBUAGU.
Nsugbe is in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State, Nigeria.
It should be noted that the DIRECT EMPOWERMENT/PUBLIC WELFARE portfolio forms one of the three legs of the ACTIVITY TRIPOD of programs being delivered by the OCI Foundation, an international (Nigerian-Australian) charity organisation. The other two legs of the tripod are on HEALTH (which has the Arm Our Youths Health Campaign as the signature project) and EDUCATION (with six different categories of annual scholarships on offer).
The EMPOWERMENT or PUBLIC/SOCIAL WELFARE program of the Foundation is primarily designed to benefit less privileged but talented or keen-to-learn individuals that are not in formal education activities, and aims to empower them with skills that will guarantee economic independence. As stated in the Foundations “Our Work” page, this program portfolio, among other things, aims to “empower and mobilise the youths and other targeted groups with the aim of achieving economic independence through feasible, cost-effective and sustainable means”.
