She also runs an educational consultancy, Dorothy’s Consult through whch she helps corporate organisations, churches, NGOs and schools to set up creches and train their teachers. She is also the founder of The Kings Foundation, a non-profit organization that runs a couple of programs dedicated to improving the standard of education in public schools in Lagos, Nigeria. TKF was founded in 2006 with the idea to provide a strong foundation in the areas of reading and writing for children. However, the idea gave way to another when a preliminary visit to three schools in Lagos brought out shocking facts of hunger and poverty among pupils that hindered them from concentrating. Thus, its flagship program ‘Feed a Child’ was born – through which children in selected nursery and primary public schools in Lagos are fed weekly. The program aims at increasing the enrollment, participation and retention level of nursery and primary school children. The foundation also organises an annual Children’s Art Competition and Exhibition. The event, which has become a celebrated annual forum for children in private schools in Lagos to showcase their artistic talents and prowess has been on since 2008. Judges for the competition are drawn from the National Gallery of Arts. The competition whixh has been supported annually in past years in different ways by the National Gallery of Art, Terra Kulture, Ruff n Tumble, the London International Gallery of Children’s Art, Airtel and MTN. has become a frame of reference for arts teachers across private primary schools in Lagos. Victoria Tandoh, an author of several children’s books and parenting newsletters is happily married and blessed with two lovely children, whose stable lifestyle and progress attest to a good upbringing. Mrs. Tandoh’s sound Nigerian and British educational background and her many years of experience working with children have been a great advantage to The King’s School and other endeavours she is involved in.
