Naija Worldwide Charities is anchored on the humanitarian and philanthropic framework laid…
…by David and Gladys Ijomanta almost seven decades ago in a small town in Northern Nigeria, who despite having thirteen children of their own, still had rooms in their hearts and home for so many others less-privileged than themselves. They had an open door policy where all were welcomed, irrespective of race, color or creed.
This attitude of charitable giving was passed onto their children who continued their work of helping those in need. For many years Esther operated a daycare and used that as an avenue to help parents desperately in need of childcare but unable to afford such care. Thus began the humble beginning of Naija Worldwide Charities officially incorporated in 2008. So,
NWC embraces and draws inspiration from our rich charitable heritage. Our core values are:
- To educate and empower the world’s poor, especially Women and girls
- To be accountable for transparency and measurable results, including social and financial performance
- To champion innovation that makes a difference in the lives of the poor
- To form partnerships with those who can advance our mission before acting alone
