FNigerian Village Empowerment is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2019 with the mission of providing assistance to Alumaku, a small village of approximately 4000 people, in southern Nigeria. Over time as the organization grows we hope to expand our list of projects and expand geographically area covered.
Alumaku was chosen because NVE has direct ties and contacts to this village through one of its board members, who grew up in this village, and through whose vision NVE has come into existence.
Listed below is NVE’s Board of Directors and an
accompanying brief bio for each.
