Who we are
helping dreams come through
Kemdi Chino Opara Foundation is a non-governmental, non religious, non political, non-ethnic and non-profit organization committed to giving back to society through community welfare services, social economic support and equitable distribution of available resources. Our scope of outreach is multi-faceted to accommodate the elderly men, women, children and the youths. We are paying special attention to the youths because too many youths are now engaged in activities that are risky and threaten their health and well-being including substance abuse, delinquency, restiveness, joblessness, poor school performance, absence from school or drop out. Since the future of every society significantly lies on the shoulder of the youths, KCOF has several programs to enhance and activate their capacities, visions and vibrancies, through providing them with enabling environment geared to stimulate participation for personal, economic and social development. Our hope is that this will in turn erase the scares of leadership failure in Africa.
Our approach is mostly proactive and interventionist by nature, thus experience over time has shown that it is better to prevent an occurrence than grapple with its aftermaths especially with health related issues. Self-love and care is key to the preservation of society, and since our primary concern is to ensure that humanity is made beautiful enough to bequeath to the next generation, we have consistently remained on this noble path; the path of
To create equal survival opportunities for all, in the face of harsh economic realities in Nigeria and Africa; and to be the guardian of the flame of hope to the poor, the sick, and the needy.
To build and preserve a society where the radiation of good and positive energy will be the only criteria for sustainable human development.
These are our targets
Talent hunt. At KCOF, we believe that the youths should be engaged to avoid the proverbial idle mind is the devil’s work shop. Therefore, we hunt for youths with talent in the areas of music, movies, makeups, film production etc. Recently several youths benefitted from our program.
Medical outreach: Based on our belief that health is wealth, our foundation has supplied and supported the needy with medical assistance since 1999. This has helped to improve the lives of children, youths and the elderly.
Addressing the need of the physically challenged people through providing them with necessary aids and support. In addition, KCOF encourages suitable environment and promote their general acceptance by family, friends, society, and their local community
Uplifting humanity through provision of solar powered electricity, portable water, and supply of relief materials. In addition, KCOF is involved in improving healthy social interaction including counteracting negative social phenomena leading to crime, aggression, addiction, prostitution, xenophobia and others
Education makes youths more reliant and responsible. The goal of KCOF is to promote youth development, restore their confidence and encourage independence through education. We have paid and continue to pay school fees for several youths from WAEC through to university with several youths benefitting from our foundation school fees program
Skills acquisition and mentorship program: We take youths and match them up with the right mentors in order to develop skills and find purpose in life in the areas of craft, sewing, hair dressing/barbing and trades. Our mentors are professionals in their domain and besides teaching the youths the right skills they need; they help and encourage them to stay on tracks in order to fulfil their potentials.
