Beginning the Foundation

Dr. Okey Anueyiagu is a Nigerian businessman, investor, teacher, author, philanthropist, humanitarian, and the founder
of Dr. Okey Anueyiagu Foundation.

He has always had a passion for improving our communities. He has provided educational scholarships for children to attend Secondary Schools, and Universities. His concern for under privileged families recently led him to build houses and shelters for several families. In 2003 he organized an international art exhibition in London, featuring Nigerian artists, and proceeds from the exhibition partly contributed to the building of an orphanage in Awka.

In 2010, Dr. Okey Anueyiagu established a Foundation for the purposes of improving the quality of life in the communities through the education of children, and the provision of other essential amenities and services in several localities that will ameliorate the difficulties encountered by local and less fortunate families.

The Foundation is building schools and providing well trained and dedicated teachers with the tools needed to give children the ability to learn to their fullest potential, in very conducive environment.

In addition, the Foundation is embarking in the establishment of a library, as well as a museum of art and culture, in Awka. These initiatives are being embarked by the Foundation as means of improving the educational advancement and awareness of the communities.
