There are many organizations and individuals already active in the areas the Foundation is working. Therefore, collaborative relationships will be explored with key groups in this area.
The Foundation will work through Non-Governmental Organisations, community based groups, including faith-based organisations, within Nigeria and outside. Our strategy of working through partnerships is intended to build institutional capacity of groups, supporting innovation and ensuring that the funding provided meets the needs of the target beneficiaries and is educationally relevant. In doing so, the Foundation encourages its grantees to forge collaborations and partnerships with local, state, national and international agencies to enhance maintenance of the projects.
The Foundation is aware that it is the responsibility of government to provide educational, health and other civic facilities for the people. Therefore the Foundation will not operate in a way to absolve government of that responsibility.
The Dr. Okey Anueyiagu Foundation will recognize and where necessary collaborate with Foundations that work in similar charities. Efforts will be made to attract foreign Foundations to invest and work in Nigeria through collaborative efforts.
Dr. Okey Anueyiagu Foundation will also get involved in the philanthropic sector by exploring groups and networks that are committed to advancing philanthropy especially in education, health and environment.
