Our Origin Everything you need to know about the foundation
The BENJAMIN KALU FOUNDATION was founded on the 29th of December 2003. It is the brainchild of Chief Benjamin Kalu, a renowned philanthropist, who is motivated by empathy and spurred on by a constant reminiscence of his childhood experiences as he watched his mother of blessed memory, Mrs Mabel Kalu, adopt several orphans in the community as her own, treating them just as she would her own children. BKF was born out of a compassionate need to care for the disadvantaged in our community. We work to alleviate poverty, promote nonviolent conflict resolution, assist the less privileged, give aid to orphans, widows, the terminally ill and physically challenged in rural communities.
Our mission What we are set out to do
