Christmas in October 2013 Beneficiary: The Kor Foundation
Kor Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 by Stanley Onwuakor, dedicated to fighting poverty within the less privileged communities of African countries by providing educational supplies, improving the conditions of poor education facilities, and mentoring young children to develop the knowledge necessary to attain academic, economic and social achievement.
The Kor Foundation believes that in order to decrease poverty and the poor mindset of many individuals within the less privileged communities of African countries, we must invest in the education of the children. The Kor Foundation is currently seeking to raise funds for is the UmunachiEhume CentralSchool in Obowo, Imo State Nigeria. Theunfortunate circumstances and poor conditions the pupils are forced to learn in have become a hindrance to the progress of their academic success.
The Kor Foundation intends on using funds raised to provideUmunachiEhume Central School with necessities such as class room desks, black boards, school supplies, toilet plumbing, and most importantly, our School Library Project. Funding renovations for the School Library Project will give Kor Foundation the opportunity to provide the pupils in this school with a chance to sit in a safe, warm, exciting enviroment conducive to learning. The library will be a place forchildren to expand their horizons mentally and practice their literacy skills. They plan on making sure these objectives are targeted by using Tutor-A-Child Program workshops to create curricula that will incorporate pupils using books from the library.
