Foundation for Academic Encouragement (FACE) was founded by two Nigerian born young professionals (Humphrey C. Emesowum and Franklin I. Onukwugha) with the aim of addressing low educational attainment, dropout rate and non-completion rate among young boys and girls who are financially challenged to further their education in Nigeria.  Humphrey and Franklin were recipients of similar academic encouragement in 2009 from Rev. Engr. Godson Onukwugha who financially encouraged them to earn a degree. This little academic encouragement did not only help them to achieve a degree but inspired them to bag a PhD in different disciplines in the United Kingdom.

Following the reported economic realities and financial constraints limiting many intelligent young people in Nigeria from accessing reasonable and quality level of education, these young men came together to found this organisation with the aim of inspiring a passion for academics through award of scholarships, bursaries and educational materials to enable every child regardless of religion, background and gender achieve a reasonable level of education to better their livelihoods.
