The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Pink Pearl Foundation, Orode Ryan-Okpu, who was very delighted about the inaugural edition of the Education Trust Fund said she was motivated to start a Trust Fund in partnership with Oaken Events after she visited an Orphanage home in Lagos and discovered that the students of the home were full of potentials and doing excellently well in academic activities.

Orode added that the scholarship is open to only orphans irrespective of their state of origin; provided such a child passes examination conducted by the foundation.

Addressing the children, the Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan who had a stop-over at the venue admonished children to obey their parents as disobedience to parents was the foundation of sin. He added that young people engage in crime nowadays because they fail to obey their parents and teachers in school. He called on children to shun criminalities as the ultimate end is always regret and spending the rest of their lives in jail.

Criminality starts from childhood. Any child that does not obey his/her parents is susceptible to be involved in criminalities. Therefore, shun drug and hemp smoking. We must remove crime from Warri and the entire Delta State,” Uduaghan said.

    Very well done to everyone who was involved in this. May God Bless and Reward you.

    Errmmm Udughan – these kids are orphans. What you meant was for them to obey their elders not parents.

    The foundation and charity work she does that she uses to cover up for the billions her and her father steals, please!
    Go and see other foundations and what they are doing, the CEO of those foundations aren’t even overly wealthy yet they’re helping. And yes, for those that’ll ask silly questions, I’m doing something, I don’t need to own a foundation before I help.
    As for Orode you can’t do any little thing without announcing to the world, you help the less privilege, you take a photo and cc Oprah, for what exactly? Smh.
    BN, play your famous politics and don’t post.

      My dear, I thought I was the only one who noticed. This is done so Nigerians who love showy display don’t account for all the money they are stealing from Delta state. smh

      Here we go with the unnecessary judgements. If this was An artist or actress who does this like they do no one will complain. You guys need to let her ! If you follow this foundation you’ll know that it is beyond just charity it is an established organization that does not just philanthropy work but are involved in other things if she doesn’t put her work out there how do you expect her to get support from people who need to support that’s what sensible organizations do to gain support! Use some brain when you type next time! You say she cc Oprah make that comment on her page na instead of coming on Bella Naija’s to say it! SMH

      Hi Orode,
      Please shut up!
      Michael ko. Michael ni.
      I’m sure this is you or one of your friends. Same thing you were doing with your Facebook account years ago when people make a bad comment about your Dad as Governor on Facebook pages, you’ll respond, even with your page. If you guys were doing things right you won’t get criticism. So by helping people and cc’ing Oprah that means you’re gonna get support? Oprah ain’t got no time for your cc’s and will probably not see it, the woman is busy. Rest abeg. If you don’t want people scrutinising you, stop advertising yourself. They’re other governors kids and they don’t get this much criticism so chill out. Same way you kept talking about your movie every single day and throwing it down our throats, what happened afterwards? You went home without anything upon all your noise Please relax, it’s not that serious! I have never seen about you without people making negative comments, check yourself as well.
      The truth is always bitter and uncomfortable.
      Bella Naija I know you don’t like to post when people are saying the truth so whatever.

      Interesting comments. However, whoever she is, she can do things without cc’ng people for commendation. Are you trying to say she’s expecting support from Oprah and Instagram is the way to go about it? Leave celebrities out of this, that isn’t the issue. And put the foundation aside for a moment, what they mean is, you can help and do charity without broadcasting. These days people go to orphanages and give them things and actually take pictures and post on social media, for what exactly? If it’s true she’s cc’ng Oprah (I find that really funny actually), she doesn’t need to. So you help people, and you want to do a philanthropy event (so to speak) and you cc Oprah, for what? So she’d say a job well done or what, someone who would properly not see it? We should all learn to help people from the sincerity of our hearts without having to inform the universe. There’s nothing wrong with the pictures being on BN but to cc Oprah is a total joke.
      If she’s your friend tell her the truth. I don’t know who this girl is but I’ve never seen a post on her on any platform without negative remarks. 1st time I heard about her was a couple of years ago when she was getting married and people were dissing and cursing her on twitter, openly, her own high school mates which I thought was absurd; I was disgusted by that. If you’re hated (note there’s a difference to be hated and hated on), then thread softly. Regardless, enough with it. She should be given a minute.

    Bella Naija,
    Why do you have a comment section if people can’t have opinions and leave comments?
    Dear Orode, this is you and it’s high time you stop disguising as people and leaving comments when negative remarks are made about you. So by cc’ing Oprah when you help people means you’d get support? Someone who’s way busy than you think and probably won’t see your post. Get over yourself please. Smh.
    BN I’m sure you won’t post ’cause your politics is on another level?
