A BIT OF BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Inspired by her own experiences, Dr. Nwando Okafor formed Soeur Foundation in order to unite women through the power of sisterhood and to impact the future of women’s earning power in the world. The overall mission is to narrow the gender gap in STEM careers, entrepreneurship, and productivity by providing enrichment to young girls and women.
Dr. Okafor was blessed to have a strong network of supporters around when she acclimated from boarding school in Nigeria to high school in the United States. Those times came with many challenges and there was always room for more support. Dr. Okafor and her sister beat many obstacles by sticking together and being each other’s support system. Collectively, they have gained much of their success as physicians and in entrepreneurship by working together as a unit.
Their powerful bond of sisterhood is implemented in the mission of Soeur Foundation. The Okafor sisters are visual proof of female change agents who are working together for the success of women in the following generations.

We believe that every one needs a mentor a some point in their life.
The Soeur After School Mentorship program is designed to build impactful relationships between at-risk girls-ages 13-22 and professional women. Our goal is to inspire and engage young women to be successful in
STEM studies, career preparation, and life strategies.
The Soeur Mentorship Program, features individual and group mentoring efforts that connect women working in STEM and relative fields to mentees who are interested in working in STEM areas. We aim to build lasting relationships that will garner infinite success and economic empowerment for women. Boys are welcomed to participate in our group sessions.
At SOEUR FOUNDATION, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in empowering women to achieve success. We mobilize our efforts by visiting schools, colleges, and other organizations to have impactful group conversations with young women.
