HEN FOUNDATION: SEED AWARD for best 5 students with innovative and unique problem solving ideas

Lagos, 31 May 2021:

The Hen Foundation founded by Jamil Eniola and named as a befitting memorial to his late mother, with the objectives of empowering the needy. The foundation has noble aims, to encourage and implement positive change in Nigeria through better and more accessible health care, the achievement of universal education and working towards an empowerment among the underprivileged members of society.

Apart from Mr. Jamil Eniola’s philanthropic activities in Africa, he has also been a veritable source of hope and succor to the needy in the U.K and was among the first people to come to the aid of victims of the June 14, 2017, Grenfell fire disaster in London.

Over the years, HEN Foundation has reached out to thousands of Nigerians in the wake of various crises. We have worked with schools to improve quality of education, empowered women to make them more independent economically.

Some of our recent humanitarian responses in Nigeria include:

  1. Developing primary and secondary school students interest in mathematics by introducing a Math Skill Program across schools in different states of Nigeria.
  2. Cancer Screening/awareness exercise for over 2000 women in partnership with the Cancer Research Centre, University of Ibadan and Femi Gbajabiamila Foundation in Surulere, Lagos State and donations of medical equipment to the UI Cancer Screening Centre.
  3. Empowerment program for women into Small and Medium Enterprise across Lagos State, Nigeria.
  4. Organized Leadership Roundtables plenary session in collaboration with Student Union leaders of University of Ibadan and School Management, theme: “Student Leadership in the 21st century-The critical interface between student government and university administration”

SEED AWARD

In a bid to further accomplish one of our most important goals which is to educate and empower underprivileged members of the society, we came up with the SEED award for the brightest and most innovative students in Nigerian universities who against all odds are trying to bring change to the society by initiating projects that can only be imagined by most people.

S – Students’

E – Enhanced

E – Engagement

D – Development

The selected students for the SEED award were subjected to a fair screening exercise alongside other hundreds of students. The screening was done at different levels and some were dropped as the screening progresses at different stages. The Final 5 selected for the HEN Foundation SEED award who are multi talented students with exemplary innovative projects are:

  1. Abigael Omeneke Anaka-Mark
  2. Oluwasolamidotun Kassim
  3. Mubarak Akingboye
  4. Benjamin Adegbenro
  5. Wonderful Osalor

It is our belief that this opportunity will further enhance their creativity and create a better environment for them to succeed and also build their network. HEN Foundation plans to make this SEED award a regular scheme and create more entrepreneurs in our society.

These entrepreneurs will create more start up businesses with their unique and innovative minds, and they will employ more citizens which will help to reduce unemployment in Nigeria and also contribute to the country’s GDP.

Mr. Jamil Eniola,

HEN Foundation President
