We strive to build a foundation of self-reliance and lasting solutions for issues affecting the vulnerable - women, youth, and orphans - on a worldwide platform with special emphasis within the Continent of Africa. We develop and support initiatives, projects, programs and services that provide essential resources – funding and relationships.

Humanitarian Relief Efforts: NWC will recruit, prepare and mobilize people of all ages and backgrounds in organized efforts to respond to the unmet human needs of children, families, and communities in crisis.

Strengthening the Capabilities of Women: by providing support for income-generating enterprises so they can meet the needs of their families independently.

Establishing Free Community Health Clinics: Making basics health care services available to all will significantly reduce the mortality rate among children due to preventable diseases such as malaria that accounts for more than 40 percent of all deaths among children. According to the Centers for disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

In 2012, malaria caused an estimated 207 million clinical episodes, and 627,000 deaths. An estimated 91% of deaths in 2010 were in the African Region.

Our vision is a community in which the basic needs of everyone are met irrespective of race, creed or religion.

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.

A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
