The Rochas Foundation is a non-governmental and non-profit organization with a firm commitment to serve humanity and build an incredible future for Africa. The Rochas Foundation was founded in 1998 by Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha, a Nigerian entrepreneur and education philanthropist who is passionate about free education for every African child. We pride ourselves as leaders in advocating.
FREE EDUCATION FOR THE AFRICAN CHILD.
THE ROCHAS FOUNDATION HAS TAKEN FREE EDUCATION TO ALL 55 AFRICAN COUNTRIES
As a foundation, we have no compromise for excellence. We are passionate about offering the African child an opportunity and platform to achieve greatness irrespective of their backgrounds, we believe that "Every Child Counts" and should have the opportunity to meet their potential and develop the academic, creative, social and spiritual skills that will enable them secure and fulfil a happy and prosperous future.
THE JOURNEY SO FAR
In achieving our goals, we built standard schools of high quality in over ten states in Nigeria. This schools also known as the Rochas foundation colleges are absolutely free.
The Rochas foundation in October 8th 2001 inaugurated the first college in Owerri, Imo state comprehensively free with boarding facilities. Other schools emerged consecutively in Kano, Jos ,Ibadan and Ogboko in Imo State. The main vision of the founder is to make education accessible and free for intelligent African children from indigent homes so as to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor in the society and as a true detribalized Nigerian, went further to open up five more schools in Sokoto, Zaria, Yola, Bauchi & Enugu.
Every child counts to the Rochas Foundation and so because of his passion for good education and the African child , he extended the foundation’s tentacles to fifty-five African countries and picked five indigent children for free education which was used to mark his 55th birthday and the establishment of Rochas Foundation College of Africa (ROFOCA).
Our focus as a foundation is vested on changing the lives of African children particularly the less priviledged amongst us through free and quality education. The set goal for us is taking over a million African kids off the streets by the year 2030.
We believe the best gift anyone can give to a child is quality education and as such we are impatient in making this a reality across Africa.
