About Hillcity Foundation Scholarship

HillCity Foundation was inaugurated in March 2004 and registered in Nigeria in 2006 as a non-profit organization with a global goal of adding value to the lives of Nigerian youths.
The founder Engr. Obi Imemba discovered that the antisocial behaviors in young people are attributed to lives that are uninformed, unfocused, frustrated, hopeless, and confused. Hence he was compelled to take action, believing that every young person needs hope, love, care, direction, motivation, and support, in order to discover, develop and deploy their potential maximally.

The foundation has since its inception supported several hundreds of young people in Nigeria and recently Uganda towards building a great, sustainable and fulfilling future.

The foundation has 4 axes of impact which it uses to achieve the program’s goals:

  • Educational support programme – the program supports young undergraduates to attain quality education by supporting them to achieve their dream and fulfill their destiny
  • Mentorship programme – the foundation operates with a mindset that young persons need guidance and mentorship hence the mentorship program. Young persons will have the opportunity to harness their full potential and bring out the best in them. Each recipient of the Hillcity foundation is assigned a mentor to guide them through their journey.
  • Economic empowerment programme – The Hillcity Foundation Program supports talented young people whose goal in life is to become successful entrepreneurs by providing them with start-up capital to fund their business ideas.
