Founder of Okoukoni Care Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), Mr. Martins Okoukoni on Tuesday commenced the disbursement of the 7th edition of WAEC/NECO enrolment funds to benefit students across Edo State.
Flagging off the disbursement at the Uromi Town Hall, headquarters of Esan North-East Local Government Area of Edo state, Mr. Okoukoni, said for over 6 years the foundation has been paying the WAEC/NECO enrolment fees for a good number of indigent students in the state.
Okoukoni said his foundation’s gesture was occasioned by his awareness that some brilliant students were always dropping out of school because of the inability of their parents to pay their tuition and enrollment fees.
According to him, “I have been so focused in bridging the gap between the rich and the poor and initiating social intervention where every individual regardless of his or her circumstance has access to education, healthcare and essential resources through our international standard and unweaving commitment.
“We aim to become a leading force in an operating society where no one is left behind because growing up, I faced a lot of challenges in getting my required needs which is why I decided to share from the very little I have now to support those who have not and I believe they will be happy with it”.
Okoukoni who said he would not stop doing it as part of his vision for Edo State and with time to cross-section of Nigeria encouraged other well-meaning Edo people to do their best in joining forces to support the education of Edo children.
Unveiling the Okoukoni Care Foundation with the theme: “Bridging The Gap Between The Rich And The Poor, Through Social Welfare” had Prof. Oyazewo Aluede, President Esan Descendants Assembly who was represented by his brother, Prof. Charles Aluede as the guest speaker.
Prof. Aluede in his speech said the government cannot do it all and it is instructive and important that people should emulate the initiative of Okoukoni Care Foundation by giving back to one’s community.
Chief Ted Inegbedion, the Eson of Uromi Kingdom, the Chairman of the occasion, Rev. Matthew Okpebholo, the father of the day, His Royal Highness, Zaiki Anselm Eidonogie II, the Ojuromi of Uromi Kingdom who was the Royal Father of the Day commended the founder of the NGO, Mr. Martins Okoukoni for empowering the less privileged students in Edo State.
Some of the beneficiaries also thanked Okoukoni and expressed satisfaction for allowing them to write WAEC/NECO exams through the help of his foundation “Okoukoni Care Foundation”.
