Chike Okoli Foundation (COF) celebrated its 16th Heart and Soul Gala in grand style on Saturday, June 18, 2022 at the Shell Hall Muson Center, Onikan Lagos.
Chike Okoli Foundation, named after the Late Chike Edward Okoli, is a non-profit organisation founded in May 2006 to fight poverty and disease while fostering the spirit of entrepreneurship among Nigerian youths.
In the last sixteen years, the Foundation has reached over I.5 million people across Nigeria and sensitized them on the dangers of cardiovascular disease and how to make lifestyle interventions.
In 2011, COF completed and opened the CHIKE Okoli Centre of Entrepreneurial Studies (COCES) at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka Anambra State, to provide entrepreneurship training.
The centre runs a two-year Diploma Programme on Entrepreneurship. This programme has trained over 2,000 entrepreneurs and also runs the University general course on entrepreneurship for every 200/300 level undergraduate student irrespective of discipline.
COCES is also the Enterprise Development Centre partner for the Pan Africa University and serves as the training centre for the South/East zone in Grooming Enterprise Leaders (GEL) and the YOU Win program projects of the Federal Government.
The Main objectives of the Chike Okoli Foundation are;
- To use all proper and culturally acceptable media to draw attention to CVDs, working closely with various youth development organizations/institutions.
- Publication and distribution of health information materials on cardiovascular diseases for public enlightenment.
- Partnership with leading health institutions to provide free screening, consulting and referral services to members of the public who require such services.
The Heart and Soul Gala night, is an annual event organised by Chike Okoli Foundation to reflect on its activities, celebrate the short but eventful life of Chike Edward Okoli as well as raise funds to support the principle and ideals for which he lived.
