Please Donate: Dr. Ibokette’s Scholarship Fund for Nigerian Children

These are trying times, and with the current state of uncertainty amid this pandemic, it is easy to get lost in the confusion and anxiety of the moment. It is easy to feel powerless and scared. But even as we remain sequestered in our homes, there are still actions we can take to make the world a better place.

Dr. Ibokette’s Scholarship Fund for Nigerian Children

For the last few years, Dr. Ibokette has organized a fundraiser to support his Scholarship Foundation. Launched in August 2017, the primary goal of this Foundation was to provide financial assistance to a group of indigent kindergarteners and first graders in Government School, Etinan (Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria). This assistance focused on the scholars’ basic school and medical needs throughout their elementary schooling that ends in sixth grade.

The foundation was very successful in meeting these needs in the 2017/2018 & 2018/2019 school years. By the spring of last year, however, we had become more conscious of the tremendous challenges that these scholars face in their daily struggles for survival. Through his work, he supports his scholars in four main ways: the scholars’ medical (including dental) needs; nutrition; clothing; and school-based needs.


By donating to his foundation you will be contributing to the following:

  • Medical (physical) and dental exams and treatments
  • Feeding program
  • A two-week Summer Enrichment Program
  • School uniform, other items of clothing, shoes, school supplies, toothbrushes and toothpastes
  • Shipment of donated supplies to Nigeria


To donate, please visit this link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/1oe43ax8yo


Additionally, we would welcome donations that support the needs of the children and can be shipped to Nigeria.


These items include:

  • Lightly worn and/or new clothes and shoes for 7 to 10 year old boys and girls
  • Hygiene/Sanitation products (new and in wrapping) – toothbrush, toothpaste, bar of soap, comb
  • School supplies – crayons, markers, pencils, notebooks
  • Recreational sports equipment (will be deflated for shipping purposes) – soccer balls and footballs


Due to coronavirus, students from the Leadership class have offered to pick up donations from individual houses.

If you wish to donate, please fill out this google form: https://forms.gle/mqwumL1Tk5GN5Br67 and leave the donation in a waterproof bag (such as a trash bag) outside your house on the day you have chosen.


Stay safe!
