In the words of Albert Schweitzer, the purpose of human life is to serve, to show compassion and the will to help others. Governor Rochas Okorocha’s compassion for the less fortunate is not just admirable but inspiring, Through Rochas Foundation which he founded as a private citizen, less privileged children in Nigeria were given the opportunity to obtain their education for free.
Set out with a mission to build a new Africa through charity, their vision to build the first foundation tree growing out of Africa, providing educational shelter for the less privileged all over the world is close to being realized. To mark the 55th birthday of their founder, a new initiative by the foundation tagged #Project55555 will award free education scholarships to 5 indigent children from 55 African countries.
Critics wonder why he should extend his generosity beyond Imo state. Much as I am not holding brief for Owelle Rochas Okorocha, he has been known to care for the needy. It is in his nature and lifestyle because he wants to make a difference in the lives of the less privileged.
