Oakbridge Foundation is a community-based organisation that provides quality education for vulnerable children in rural communities, in a conducive learning centre. We also donate instructional materials to schools and provide scholarship opportunities for children within the community of operation. We are committed to helping children see the world through a different lens irrespective of their social status; give hope, create a bridge to a dream future and inspire them to walk it.

As a result of economic recession and communal crisis, which have left people displaced and impoverished, the number of out of school children has increased at an alarming rate. In our community of operation one out of four children is out of school for financial reasons. During school hours these children are left to roam and play around the neighbourhood, sometimes unsupervised by an adult. The risk of rape, kidnap and gang influence are high for these group of children which will in turn affect the community at large if not curbed. Education is one of many ways to keep children informed, engaged and security conscious.

Our pilot scheme is located in Katampe community, Mpape, Abuja. It is the first of its kind in the area, using various hands-on instructional materials and experiences to meet learning needs; thereby expanding the world view of our learners. We inculcate problem solving and manipulative skills, encouraging them to meet challenges with a disposition of “how can this be tackled?” knowing that the solutions to diverse world problems lie within them. By exposing learners to an environment that stimulates their latent abilities, we are raising children that will compete locally and globally.

Our presence in the community has since helped children to access a quality of education they cannot afford. They are exposed to learning experiences, including field trips that broaden their world view and help them dream way above what their social status permits.

In the past three academic sessions we have provided scholarship opportunities for  children of both primary and secondary school levels. This has not only helped the learners to stay in school, but has helped their self-esteem as they no longer have to face the embarrassment of being sent out of school every term, or prevented from writing exams or receive results due to outstanding fees.

We plan to do more in the coming sessions.
