As the Founder of Mercy Wave Foundation, she finds it very exciting to envisage what path are potential graduates going to take, how will their lives change, and how will that change affect other lives? The fact is that they will need some help along the way as most families can’t afford quality education for their wards. Now there are sounds of joy as these scholars eventually have great help. Thanks to the fully-funded scholarship awards that support their education which is provided by the Mercy Wave Foundation annually.
Mercy Wave Foundation has awarded fully-funded scholarships to over 250 students in the Universities; transforming potentials into success. So many potentials that will affect the country positively lay waste and most times die away due to lack of opportunity to further in academics.
Princess Dr. Mercy Uwakwe shares the passion of changing lives, particularly when it is financial barriers that make the difference between having that opportunity and not having it: the opportunity that is the difference between who you are and who you’ll become. Mercy Wave Foundation is harnessing these potentials through a monitored and well organized annual scholarship schemes that are void of nepotism and favoritism; it is strictly based on merit.

The Unemployment rate has hit 32.5 % in 2021. This came as a warning by the Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA). Earlier In 2018, Nigeria’s unemployment rate was 8.24%.
