Enugu 2019, David Oyelowo Leadership Scholars

Ten girls, who live in Enugu, entered the New Year, with no hint on what would happen to them by September. They all had two things in common – they were all intelligent and from poor families. They went about their normal lives, aware of their families’ needs and their challenges. Little did they know that somewhere in the horizon was a scholarship that would change their entire lives!


David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship for Girls came just at the right time for these ten girls. And again, GEANCO brought hope and life to generations.


Meet the Enugu’s, David Oyelowo Scholars 2019. Each girl has a unique story; not so easy to capture with words.
