Dr Vivian's passion was to inspire and encourage girls to study science. To continue her legacy, her family have set up the Dr. Vivian Obiodu Foundation to support other girls to fulfill their dreams too.
The "1 = 50" Goal
In Phase One, the Foundation will focus on its "1 = 50" strategic goal: to inspire and support the training of 50 female medical doctors from Umuna Okigwe (Imo State, Nigeria) to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Vivian.
This will include giving an annual cash award of N50,000 (~£120) for 6 years to all girls in the community who are studying for a medical degree. The Foundation will also work with local associations, religious bodies and other charity organisations to inspire and encourage girls in the community to study to become doctors.
All donations to support the work of the Foundation are warmly welcomed and will be processed through the Paypal link below. Also note that all donations received at the funeral ceremonies in the UK and Nigeria have already being channeled to the Foundation.
