Rochas Foundation has kick started the establishment of schools in Cross River state with a view to providing free and quality education to less privileged children.
The move vanguard learned was in order to help less privileged children to secure a better future for themselves and their immediate society.
This was disclosed by the Deputy Chief of Staff, Rochas Foundation, Mrs Uloma Nwosu, at the ‘Mentors Interactive Cocktail’ held at the Transcorp Hotel, Calabar, yesterday in Calabar.
Mrs Nwosu in her address, said the Foundation which was established in 1998 has so far trained 25,000 children, produced 6,000 graduates, some of who are now in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Google.
She said the setting up of Rochas Foundation school in Calabar was part of the organization’s plan to take free education to the south south region and to also cater for the educational needs of street children.
