About UsWelcome to The OVL Foundation



The OVL Foundation

OVL Foundation was established in 2016 and duly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission as a movement to empower women, young people and children in Africa to lead economically productive lives and break free from the shackles of poverty, stagnation and retrogression.

OVL Foundation recognizes that women, young people and children in Nigeria and Africa are vulnerable and are faced with unique issues and challenges specific to their gender and stage of life, and therefore need empowerment, mentoring and guidance in all spheres of life and learning to rise above them.

OVL Foundation is guided by the belief that every human should be entitled to and not alienated from equal opportunities, economic justice, accessible and prompt healthcare as well as the tools to carve and work out their economic freedom and independence.

OVL Foundation has the manpower and expertise to conduct capacity building, social and community mobilization, surveys and baseline research, institutional review and analysis, project development and implementation and a host of other activities and programs.
