The couple described in a recent update how they assisted young Nigerian students returning to school through their own foundation, The Archewell Foundation.

“This month, as students all over the world went back to school, The Archewell Foundation supported girls’ education and health by sending school supplies and menstrual products to young scholars in Nigeria with The GEANCO Foundation,” read a statement posted on the Archewell website.

“Its David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship provides full tuition, medical care, and social and emotional support to young female victims of terrorism and gender inequality in Nigeria,” it stated, adding that “GEANCO provides critical health care and education services in Nigeria.”

“GEANCO CEO Afam Onyema assisted in packing menstruation products and supplies into backpacks with the Archewell staff.”

Final words of the statement read, “AWF’s support will also provide menstrual health education for 2,500 girls in the region GEANCO serves, supporting the health and well-being of girls pursuing their education.”

The latest post was accompanied by numerous photos showing girls in Nigeria getting their brand-new backpacks, which were filled with water bottles, pencil pouches, friendship bracelets, and other back-to-school supplies, from Shay Mitchell’s well-known brand Béis.

Dr. Godwin Onyema and his family established the GEANCO Foundation in 2005. According to their website, the foundation’s name is an acronym for each member of the Onyema family: Godwin, Ebele, Afam, Nche & Nma (Mom), and Chukwugozie Onyema.

“We also provide the nation’s schools with sports fields, computers, books, and medications. We offer full tuition, health care, and professional psychological support to young women in Nigeria who have been victims of terrorism and gender inequality through our David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship for Girls.”
