Emmanuel Ikechi Okoro

On-site project coordinator 

"Before starting my role at Martha's Dream Academy I had been teaching at Primary and Secondary schools allover the World since I finished school. Around 10 years ago I moved back to Nigeria where I married my wife, had two children and worked managing my business. Being the son of Martha and a native of this village gives me the strengths to work every day harder to achieve my mother's dream and give a bright future to our students".

David founded Martha's Dream with Mercy and Mike. With extreme sadness of all trustees and supporters of Martha's Dream, David passed away in December 2018. Due to the incommensurable contribution that he made to Martha's Dream, the committee decided to declare David a honorary trustee.
