Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International (COFI)
The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International (COFI) is a faith-based non-governmental, non-political organization under the direction of its visionary and legendary founder, the Man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. Through the promotion and sponsorship of charitable initiatives, COFI was established to help individuals, communities and nations lead purposeful and productive lives in the service of the Lord.
The mission of the Foundation reflects the divine teachings and inspirational message of Pastor Chris and seeks to benefit the most vulnerable people and communities in some of the poorest countries and regions of the world.
Through its initiatives, the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International seeks to offer structured support for impoverished children across the world in order to guarantee access to qualitative education, medical care, physical and spiritual nourishment thus enabling them to lead normal, competitive and useful lives in their communities and to live out their God-given destinies.
COFI believes in supporting strong foundations of community by promoting good governance, accountable leadership and sustainable development in Africa and in other vulnerable parts of the world.
The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International has identified four key areas of greatest need in order to execute high impact programs to accomplish the greatest good:
Every person deserves access to quality, affordable healthcare services. Healthcare services in impoverished communities are generally considered to be poor and insufficient. Medical facilities struggle to deliver essential health services due to inadequate service providers and shortages of supplies.
Financial hardship prevents many from seeking healthcare services when they are most needed. The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International works to enhance the quality and availability of healthcare services in the communities that need it the most. COFI supports initiatives that break down the barriers to proper healthcare in order to ensure the delivery of adequate healthcare services, quality healthcare management and improved patient care to build strong, healthy communities.
Early Childhood Education and Development
The first years of a child’s life are the most crucial and have a direct effect on their future development. Ensuring that a child receives adequate early educational opportunities will provide them with a solid foundation for lifelong learning and future success. Investing in young children is essential in maximizing the future well-being of the child and the community as a whole.
For the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International, the promotion of quality education and skill acquisition among children and youth ensures that they become vital to the development of their communities and nations. To support academic achievement, the foundation works to fund research activities in key areas of learning.
Children need consistent encouragement and loving care to promote healthy development. Children who have had access to early educational opportunities live happier and healthier lives, have higher levels of literacy, and participate more in society. COFI seeks to help vulnerable children achieve their full potential by supporting their educational, spiritual and social needs.
Youth Leadership Development and Engagement
The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International believes that human excellence should be recognized and celebrated, especially among young leaders who are responsible for the future of our communities. It is the pioneering achievements and innovations of outstanding young men and women that redefine the course of human actions.
The foundation has actively supported young Africans to reach their full potential by identifying, supporting and awarding these outstanding individuals working to make a difference in their communities at the annual Future Africa Leaders Awards (FALA).
These young men and women have been empowered with grants that have allowed them to continue their work by developing various individual initiatives that have impacted more than 500 communities in 23 African countries and have affected in excess of 1 million people.
