The plight of many young Nigerians who cannot further their education weighs heavy on Ladi’s heart. This conviction led to the creation of the GLP Cares Foundation. The Foundation has provided twenty-two full scholarships to scholars to attend reputable private and public Universities in Nigeria. In 2016, a scholarship was awarded to a beneficiary to study for a master’s degree at the University of Oxford.
