Oando Foundation is an independent charity focused on transforming lives through education and social economic empowerment by supporting the Nigerian government in achieving its Universal Basic Education (UBE) goal. The Foundation is funded by 1% of the pretax profit from Oando PLC and it commits 80% of the fund to education and the balance to empowerment projects.
Oando Foundation is fully registered charity in the United States and has been determined by the IRS to be tax exempt under 501(c)(3).
Through its flagship Adopt-A-School initiative, the Foundation is committed to the advancement of capacity building and sustainable development by increasing access to quality basic education in public schools through infrastructural development, teachers' training, and the provision of basic amenities to create conducive learning environments. So far, the Foundation has awarded scholarships to 420 pupils and adopted 47 schools across the country. Our plan is to adopt 100 schools by 2015.
