Our mission

EEF is on a mission to be a bridge to help children enjoy their right to quality education. 

We will return them to learning in a safe, enabling, and sustainable environment. Furthermore, we will partner with highly trained educators, individuals, and organizations (including technology solution organizations) to provide students with learning resources, support, mentorship, and connections to international learning communities.

Our vision

We envision that all children will have access to their right to education.

Our story

On the 27th of March 2022, Elaine Nkwocha launched the BSWE Foundation, now named and registered on the 16th of March and 20th of March 2023, as the Elaine Education Foundation (EEF) in Nigeria and the United States, respectively. EEF received a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit status, effective from the 20th of March, 2023.

What we Do

Our Primary Causes

Our work revolves around several key causes, all underpinned by our overarching mission to provide children with access to quality education. Each cause reflects a crucial aspect of education and contributes significantly to our efforts to bridge the education gap.

Student Support Initiatives

Our student-centric initiatives aim to provide direct support to children. This includes offering scholarships to economically disadvantaged children, ensuring every child can access education. Additionally, we supply essential learning resources to enhance students’ academic experience and enable them to succeed.

Educational Infrastructure and Development

Our efforts include improving school infrastructure to foster conducive learning spaces and investing in teacher development to ensure effective instruction. We also foster international learning collaborations, exposing students to diverse ideas and experiences, enriching their educational journey.

Scholarship Project

For the 2023/2024 academic year, we have provided sixty-two (62) indigent Nigerian children with full scholarships to attend school.

School Supplies Drive

Yearly, we coordinate back-to-school supplies drives. In August 2023, we participated as a vendor at the East Baton Rouge back-to-school bash; we distributed school supplies to students. 

School Infrastructure Project

School furniture will be provided for Royal Kids Foundation School, Enugu State, Nigeria
