HOLLYWOOD'S ACTOR, DAVID OYELOWO GRANTS 5 CHIBOK GIRLS, BOKO HARAM SURVIVORS SCHOLARSHIPS

David Oyelowo is not just an actor, he’s also a humanitarian and he flexed these muscles in August 2016 when he spearheaded a scholarship which aims to ensure that young Nigerian girls have the necessary tools to excel in society.

In partnership with an LA-based NGO GEANCO, the David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship For Girls specifically aims to support female victims of terror attacks and gender-based inequality.

 

The foundation donates important supplies to schools in Nigeria, while providing scholarships to young female victims of terrorism in order to give them a fighting chance. The scholarship was named after the actor because he encouraged the creation, and he also plays an active role in selecting recipients and raising money to ensure its continued success. He has got his important friends like Oprah and others involved in funding the foundation.

Speaking about the scholarship on Instagram, David Oyelowo said:

“We cannot stand idly by while thousands of innocent girls remain under serious threat. With our help, these bright and resilient girls can blossom into Nigeria’s most inspiring leaders in government, education, business, entertainment, and so much more. 

Proud to present the glorious recipients of the David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship. They survived terror at the hands of Boko Haram, now the journey toward their true destiny has begun.”
