About Ehume Foundation Education Funds, Inc.
Ehume Foundation Education Funds, Inc. (Ehume Fund) is beating a path for other American citizens from developing nations to follow. A group of naturalized USA citizens from Ehume, Nigeria, have teamed with native-born USA citizens and formed a non-profit, tax-exempt [IRS 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to bringing the education system in Ehume from its bare existence into the 21st century with good school buildings, adequate furnishings, and modern teaching aids. The EFEF is a non-government organization with no paid staff. Except for minimal operating expenses, all financial contributions are going toward educating the Ehume children.
EFEF's Basic Education Objectives in Ehume
Projects - Near Term and Later
Based on information from former residents of Ehume now living in the USA, the EFEF Board has selected as its first project the repair and refurbishment of an existing school (Ehume Community School), which was greatly damaged during the Biafran War. The Nigerian government provides teachers, but the citizens must repair the schools, and they are too poor to buy the building materials. This first project will begin in the first quarter of 2003. See the Projects page for details.
Before the completion of Project 1, we will initiate Project 2, which is to assist the Umuezeagu Primary School with the collection of books and teaching aids. This small school is under construction and is anticipated to be operational by September 2002.
See the Projects page for information about Projects 3 and 4.
