Educational Development


Male Scholarship Scheme

This programme was created in response to the high drop-out rate of boys from secondary school in order to fend for themselves and their families due to poverty. This scholarship scheme aims to encourage boys to complete their secondary and tertiary level education. Secondary school Boys that successfully complete the application process are given full scholarships at either Tansi International School, Awka or St Christopher Junior Seminary School, Onitsha Anambra State. All secondary school graduates are then urged to move on to any higher education institution of their choice in Nigeria and successful applicants are also awarded full scholarships for the duration of their course.

Scholarships for Masters students are considered on a case by case basis and are greatly encouraged.



I am a public policy and governance research professional with a BSc (First class Honours) in Political Science and Public Administration from University of Benin, Nigeria. My first contact with VEN foundation was in 2016, a few months after I was admitted for a master’s degree in Political Science at the University of Ibadan. The foundation’s prompt response to my request for financial support regarding my tuition fees placed me on a strong footing and made it possible for me to concentrate and successfully complete my programme. Subsequently, the Africa Initiative for Governance (AIG) awarded me a full scholarship to study for a master’s degree in Public Policy at the University of Oxford, UK. I have also gone on to work with two Nigerian-based research institutes and a think-tank based in London.


My worries came to an end the moment I gained admission into Latana College of Hospitality Enugu, through VEN Foundation. I never believed I will ever find myself in school again after my secondary school education because my family could not afford to fund my education. But VEN Foundation offered me a scholarship to study Hospitality.

It really eased the burden on my parents and it was a consolation to my heart, an upliftment to the people around me.

I can’t say all thatVEN Foundation has done in my life, my story has changed completely that I can now boast of being a good quality chef,a caterer,a housekeeper and a professional hospitality supervisor and above all a good homemaker. These and many more is what VEN Foundation has made possible in my life today.VEN Foundation made it possible for me to meet up with my mates when it comes to educational reasoning.

In my spiritual life,my lifestyle has totally changed. I began my catechism class with the intention to receive my first holy communion and confirmation on Easter Vigil 2020,


My greatest thanks to Almighty God, the creator of the whole universe, who uses his faithful servants in VEN Foundation to support and help humanity through their numerous good acts, especially through VENFoundation. I thank and appreciate how much they have assisted young people to achieve their goals and ambitions through so many means, such as:job opportunities for unemployed young people, scholarships to under privileged young people to help promote education in the society, providing decent healthcare and free medication to members of the village(TOWN), helping the aged in the society just to mention a few.VEN Foundation is making life less difficult for under privileged families. Things would not have been easy for without VEN foundation. They have paid my school fees since my first year in secondary school. They also provide all my textbooks and take care of all my personal needs while I am at school. The foundation usually sends a representative to ensure I am getting on well with school.  I pray that the Most High God will continue to bless and favour them.
