We at Elomaz Foundation are committed to the development of education in Isoko nation, hence we have embarked on various Educational Support Schemes.
“We have four sets of activities that we carry out every year. Within the next few weeks, we are going to give out Christmas packages to 150 widows across Isoko nation including the registered Orphanage Homes in Isoko nation. Just recently, we provided relief materials to flood victims in Odoro Primary School Oleh and Alaka Grammar School, Ozoro.
“Also we are set to register over 1000 students for JAMB this year coupled with our FREE JAMB LECTURES. All these projects are done single-handedly by the founder of the foundation, Hon Joel-Onowakpo Thomas and they are not politically motivated.
“By January, we will award scholarships to the best student in each class across some selected schools in Isoko nation, in each school 6 students will be given scholarships under the Elomaz Foundation Students Assistance Scheme.”
