Orondaam Otto

Orondaam has been a community organizer, development consultant, and social entrepreneur for over 15 years, working with thousands of young people across the private and public sectors.

He has been committed to building Africa’s future by providing education for children and youths across underserved communities, improving education and human capital development policies, and promoting reform-based leadership to eliminate socio-economic inequalities and achieve sustainable, inclusive, and equitable economic growth.

In 2012, he founded Slum2School Africa to provide educational scholarships for out-of-school children and create a solution to the deplorable state of education in the slums and underserved communities across Nigeria/Africa.

Today, Slum2School Africa has grown to become one of Africa’s leading volunteer-driven developmental organizations and over the past 9 years, he has worked with over 11,500 volunteers across 42 countries to provide educational scholarships and dozens of development support to over 108,500 children from 47 communities across Nigeria. He has led his team in building various early childhood development centers, adopted public schools, built e-libraries, health centers, technology and Innovation labs serving thousands of children, and recently, built the first virtual learning classroom in Africa.

Otto’s vision is to see that every child and youth, irrespective of their color, origin, gender, and physical or mental ability is given an equal opportunity and the best chances to education, to enable them to maximize their potential and contribute positively to the growth of the African continent.
