Foundation for Academic Encouragement (FACE) is a non-profit organisation created in 2016 to inspire a passion for academic excellence, and to encourage financially challenged youths to acquire a reasonable level of education to improve their livelihoods and make a meaningful contribution to their societies. FACE envisions a society where young people from disadvantaged background reach their full potential without any financial limitation.

Our vision is in line with the United Nation Sustainable Development Goal 4, which ensures an inclusive and quality education for all. In FACE, we believe that obtaining a reasonable and quality education is the foundation to driving Sustainable Economic Development; especially in Sub-Sahara Africa where 637 million people live below the poverty line and with the largest number of children in the world who are out of school. Our interest in education is premise on the fact that education is a pivot, where many other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) revolve. When people are able to get a reasonable and quality education, they can break from the cycle of poverty. Education reduces gender inequalities and empowers young people across the world to live healthier and sustainable lives.

Since inception, FACE has made significant progress in these areas and has strategically empowered intelligent young boys and girls from disadvantaged backgrounds who are financially hapless to further their education through the award of scholarships, bursaries, grants, educational materials and fellowships. We are keen to partnering with key stakeholders and international organisations to translate educational policies into practice in Sub-Sahara Africa; especially Nigeria where it has been reported that 10.5 million children are out of school due to Socio-economic constraints to attend public funded schools.
