Our History

What began nearly 15 years ago as one man’s individual effort to support his Department of Botany/Microbiology at University of Ibadan, Nigeria after water damaged to the department building, volunteer for school organisations in fund raising, getting books and other materials from UN agencies and donated to the schools and organizations, participation in UN humanitarians programs around the world has now grown into Hawau Eniola (HEN) Foundation. Founded in 2013 after the death of the founder’s mother Mrs Hawau Eniola, the Hen Foundation was built upon the belief system that regardless of stature, only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy; true fulfillment.

Connecting, inspiring, and demonstrating true leadership throughout the world, the Foundation’s has made a significant impact on Education, Health, Empowerment, Social Development etc. Some public primary and secondary school in Lagos, Ogun and Oyo State in Nigeria, benefitted from our foundation the Mathematics Skill Pilot Program. The program teaches how Parents and Teachers can now help their Children/Student effectively and make a positive difference in their Children’s/Student’s lives, without the fear of not knowing enough Maths or the fear of confusing the child with old methods.
