If the acts of giving are gifts divinely inspired and God’s instrument to alleviate the suffering of the needy and downtrodden, then the Adadioramma Foundation is one organization abundantly blessed with such a gift and fulfilling His (God’s) heartbeats.

Founded by Dr (Mrs) Nkoli Imoh, the Adadioramma Foundation has touched the lives of millions of Nigerians across the country for many years now. The dogged commitment expressed by the visioner is sincere and deep inspiration that makes her a voice and pillar for the helpless today. From project identification borne out of critical and strategic need assessments to execution tailored for maximum impact and results, the Adadioramma Foundation is heavy on youth unemployment, enhancing the status of widows and bringing succor to hundreds of orphanages scattered across the nation.

Dr. (Mrs) Imoh, a philanthropist per excellence, has shown rare dexterity and sagacity in business- growing her organization from scratch to a formidable entity and her foray into politics over the years records resounding success and a positive impact. Working with people at the grassroots and across all spectrums of human endeavors equipped her with first-hand knowledge of the struggles of many, and she has empathically responded to them through the instrumentality of the Adadioramma Foundation.

Fondly called Ada in admiration of the name of the Foundation- Adadioramma, this iconic charity personality, Dr (Mrs) Imoh, was born into a noble Christian family of Chief (Sir) and Lady Simeon Arazu of Umuakabuike-Umudike Ukpor in Nnewi-South Local Govt Area of Anambra State, and was tutored strictly in the Christian faith and the fear of the Lord.

Dr. (Mrs.) Nkoli Imoh, a Business Administration graduate from the prestigious University of Lagos after her stint at Premier Primary School, Onitsha, and Anglican Girls Secondary School, Onitsha, was equipped with the requisite groundwork to venture into business dealing in vehicle tires in Lagos State before establishing Windward International Limited, her flagship organization that inarguably earned her unprecedented success as a business mogul.

Through the Adadioramma Foundation, Dr. (Mrs) Nkoli Imoh has empowered many Nigerians with over 50 cars and buses of various classes, hundreds of motorcycles, thousands of sewing machines, vulcanizing machines, cellophane machines, sets of hairdressing equipment, and generators. She has also opened barbing salons for over 400 youths across the 326 wards in Anambra State and built houses for widows, providing funds for people to establish small-scale businesses. And the quantity of rice and clothing materials given out to the underprivileged is overwhelming.

Her philan­thropic gestures are beyond the national boundaries and earned her the International Peace Award in 2003 by the American Biograph­ical Institute, the Entrepreneurial Excellence Award by the Rotary Club International, the Paul Harris Fellowship Award by the Rotary Club International on 20th December 2015, Panthers Sports Club, Nnewi awarded her the Social Mobilizer of the Year 2015.

The International Women’s Conference, 2018, in Dubai (UAE) recognized her as the No. 1 Women Mobilizer in Africa. Above all, she has bagged two Honorary Doctorate Degree awards from the Pilgrims University, Burlington, North Carolina, USA, and Abia State University, Uturu, Ni­geria, respectively, and the Department of Education Foundation, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, made her the Grand Patroness of the Department in 2013ment in 2013.

To ensure the sustainability of its empowerment program, the Foundation, under its cooperative arrangement, secured Federal Government approval for the estab­lishment of a financial Cooperative/Microfi­nance Institution named Global Cooperative Society Limited.

This Microfinance institution is fully operative, and many people benefit from its near zero-interest loan. Apart from financial empowerment, in 2011, she facilitated a medical team of the ASA, USA, to the Nnewi-South local government area to offer free medical treatment for people suffering from sicknesses such as prostate cancer, breast examination, optical services, and diabetic care. She donated a departmental vehicle to the Department Education Foundation of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, in 2013. One thing that has continued to amaze people is that she has been doing all these projects without asking for anything from the beneficiaries.

Today, she is decorated and honored with countless chieftaincy titles for her numerous philanthropic activities and gestures by different communities and organizations such as Adadioramma Gburugburu, Ukpor; Adadioramma, Ebenator; Igolo, Mbaise; Ugo Si Mba, Adaziani; Nne Ife, CWO, Nnewi Diocese; Ada Ejiejemba, Abatete; Nne Oranile, Aguata among others.

The Adadioramma Foundation is steadily and progressively raising the bar of philanthropy by actively engaging and empowering disadvantaged individuals and communities in dire need. Her love for charity dates back to her teenage years, and she is driven by a rare passion to uplift humanity and better the lots of as many as possible. Indeed, the Foundation has redefined the landscape of philanthropy and taken it some notches high.
