The Sebaus Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization (tax identification number EIN 87-2747597) under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
The SEBAUS Foundation honors Late Sebastian (Uduakommili, Eze Chinyeluaku of Nimo) and Augustine Eke, great men with heart for home who died in their prime, while assisting and motivating many underprivileged people to realize their full potential. The local and extended communities where they lived and served still bemoan their loss. The Sebaus Foundation was established to immortalize their memory, spirit and passion for helping others grow. In their honor, we are changing families and schools one child at a time by improving access to opportunities and enabling diligent youths to thrive.
Our mission is to groom an empowered next-generation via improving educational and situational opportunities for kids. We do this by ascertaining the needs of underprivileged schools, creating awareness of their needs and recruiting resources to help solve their problems. By operating transparently with the help of donors and volunteers such as yourself, we enable direct donor-to-project giving, integrity and smart funds allocation with maximum impact.
Funds raised by the Foundation are applied to various causes including:
- The BUILDING STEM COMPETENCE (BSC) Program which provides much-needed STEM and Financial education to middle and high school students in the USA.
- Backpacks for Kids Program: For many children in low-income communities, having a durable schoolbag of their own is a luxury. Many across the world use plastic bags or none at all due to inability to access or afford quality bags. Our BKP solves this challenge by purchasing and shipping backpacks to recipient schools.
- School Repairs, Renovations and Upgrades: We identify a Recipient school and work with them over the course of 1-2 years to fix troubling issues. There is always something to fix especially in under resourced schools. We have added a Library to Uruegbe Primary School, the first in its over 100 years of existence. We have equipped kids for school, fixed unsafe stairs, repainted classrooms and done so much more. We do these by raising awareness and donations that improve the learning environment, wellbeing and safety of the students.
