The Sir Emeka Okwuosa Foundation (SEOF) is a Nigerian-based nonprofit organization that began philanthropic activities in the 1990s but was formally incorporated in 2011.
We focus on programs that sustainably impact the lives of people in communities across Nigeria. This ethos has seen us invest in Healthcare, Education and Socio-Economic Empowerment.
SEOF recognizes that facilitating sustainable community development is essential for creating long-lasting change.

Through this approach, we foster a sense of community ownership and pride in the projects, leading to greater impact and long-term sustainability.
We envision an Africa where every citizen has access to the resources that they need to effect positive change on a global scale.
Our mission is to facilitate sustainable community development by addressing fundamental needs and empowering communities.
