Our Story

A little spark of idea turned mission.
At Ola Coker Foundation, our philosophy is hinged on being our brother’s keeper. This has since formed the basis of our operation, fanning the embers of genuine affection for the impoverished and underserved in society. Upon commencement, we shifted gears from the confines of mindful thoughts and made this little idea grow into actionable plans by setting forth the agenda to touch as many lives as possible. OCF believes that everyone desires the best shot at life irrespective of where fate has placed them.

Our Journey

If Children are the leaders of tomorrow. The tomorrow is just a second from now, the future is now.

When we first started, the problem was figuring out how to do that in a significant and impactful way. We started giving school supplies to students in public schools across Lagos State.

Every day we make a commitment to using our resources to build a society where everyone has the chance to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Most significantly, we hold to the notion that every life is equally valuable.

Since we commenced our first project, the BETTER CHILD in 2019, we have visited different communities in and around Lagos State ensuring that we distribute materials needed and offering scholarship programmes to indigent students. With a total of 3,000 students reached so far, the advocacy and continued efforts in renewing the dreams of children whose parents are below the poverty line are giving the wings to soar high.
