In partnership with an LA-based NGO GEANCO, the David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship For Girls specifically aims to support female victims of terror attacks and gender-based inequality.
The foundation donates important supplies to schools in Nigeria, while providing Scholarships to young female victims of terrorism in order to give them a fighting chance. The scholarship was named after the actor because he encouraged the creation, and he also plays an active role in selecting recipients and raising money to ensure its continued success.
