Odinaka Ojukwu Foundation is a brain child of Chief Odinaka Ojukwu, an international businessman and a philanthropist. The passion, drive and urgency to improve the quality of life of Nigerians prompted him to set up this foundation.
As a non-governmental organization, the Odinaka Ojukwu Foundation is established with the sole purpose of addressing the immediate and remote needs of Nigerians especially those in the rural areas .
Chief Odinaka Ojukwu is of the view that the true measure of his success is dependant on the number of lives he transforms. He believes that as a very successful businessman, his primary responsibility as a true citizen of Nigeria, is to help in bridging the poverty gap in Nigeria.

He is uncomfortable by the reality that, a sickness as common as malaria, kills over 300,000 children in Nigeria every year.
