OAM has promised to assist the less privileged albinos in Nigeria. (OAM) Foundation, Onome Akinlolu Majaro is a non-governmental organisation (NGO). OAM Foundation puts a smile on the face of an albino child, Divine Udochukwu, a primary four pupil of Young Nation Primary School, Okota in Lagos, by awarding her a scholarship. The scholarship, the Albino Foundation says, will cover up to university level, adding that Divine’s special talent and her passion to excel in her studies, despite albinism, positioned her for the award. The foundation, not too long ago, also offered a scholarship to one Mr. Kalu Victor, a blind albino student of History and Strategic Studies at the University of Lagos, Akoka, in its quest to promote the welfare of albinos in the country and to also end all forms of stigma and discrimination against them. Victor’s scholarship covered his tuition and accommodation fees for the four-year programme. Speaking during the scholarship’s formalization in Lagos, recently, Logistics Officer and Ambassador of the Albino Foundation, Mr. Ugochukwu Orji, said though the foundation was still self-sponsored, it will continue to fashion out ways of assisting the less privileged albinos in the society.
