The trend of educational decadence in our nation today is alarming. Students have lost interest in learning. And the cause is not far fetched. It can be easily traced to lack of quality education, motivation and rewards for hardwork among the students.
And recently, we discovered that sticking to the outdated traditional method of teaching/learning in the third world countries like Nigeria is another major cause of students losing interest in learning.
Truly the old system of teaching/learning is tedious as well as boring. But not so in modern system. Learning through a digital medium can make teaching/learning fascinating and fun.
We believe that by making learning appealing, competitive and rewarding academic excellence among the students, we can win back their interest in learning.
Bunmi Olusa Foundation is a non-governmental philanthropic organisation established to encourage education and skills and talents development among the youths and teenagers in rural areas, by offering scholarship to students and promoting activities that set the scene for talent discovery and development.
The foundation was established in 2020 by Fola Olubunmi Olusa, a Nigerian philanthropist and businessman. A man with kind heart and strong passion for helping the youths attain a better tomorrow.
Bunmi Olusa Foundation strongly believe that the youths are leaders of tomorrow and the future of this nation. But if they are not empowered, it becomes very difficult for them to achieve their great dreams, discover and develop their amazing talents.
For these reasons, we are committed to encouraging learning and rewarding hardwork among the students, as well as promoting skills and talents development among the youths.
