Rochas Okorocha Foundation offers 1,000 scholarships to displaced children in Benue

 

Rochas Foundation has offered 1,000 scholarships to children in displaced camps in Benue as a result of the recent clashes in the state.

 

neral of the foundation, Mrs Uloma Rochas Nwosu, made the announcement in an interview with journalists in Owerri, Imo State, at the 20th anniversary celebration of the establishment of the foundation.

According to her, the offering of scholarships to the 1,000 children was part of the agenda of the foundation which is to take off one million African children from the streets by 2030.

The Benue State Government recently announced that over 10,000 children are unable to go to school as a result of killings and clashes between herdsmen and farmers forcing thousands to relocate to camps for displaced persons.

“As a foundation, we shall be offering free and qualitative education to 1,000 children at the IDP Camp in Benue State. This may not be enough considering that over 10,000 children are estimated to be out of school as a result of the recent clashes in that State,” she disclosed.
