Nigeria benefits from a growing population of young people, but too few of them are educated and skilled in the jobs we need for the future.
Grace Lake Partners Cares Foundation was set up to give young Africans “a second chance at prosperity” by establishing a facility that provides educational support to underprivileged youths. The Foundation established the Grace Lake Scholarship Fund which has provided numerous full ride scholarships for bright young individuals to attend the University of Oxford and reputable universities in Nigeria. We also support Teach for Nigeria which is a transformational leadership program focused on developing a movement of leaders, who are committed to ending educational inequity.

The Grace Lake Partners (GLP) Cares Foundation was formed in 2014 by Ladi Delano with a core mission to give young Nigerians “a second chance at success”.
The Foundation also provides classes, career counselling and support services on University applications to young, underprivileged adults.
