Inc. wwas officially incorporated
in 2008, its history dates back decades to when
Fr. Felix Ugwuozor was growing up as a child.
The name and the guiding philosophy
of OneHopeChildren, Inc. was conceived in the context
of his reflections on the incredible faith, courage,
resilience and hope his parents displayed in the
face of the enormous financial burden they undertook
in being dedicated to providing their six children
with good educations. Fr. Felix's experience as
a Registrar and Academic Dean of the Social Science
Department at the Institute of Ecumenical Education,
Thinkers Corner Enugu (now renamed the Bishop Godfrey
Okoye University) was equally significant in setting
the stage for what is known as OneHopechildren,
inaugurated with a twelve-member advisory council
to identify children who are most in need, intelligent,
and love education but are unlikely to be afforded
one because their families are financially strapped.
