About NWAG

Welcome to the Nigeria Women Association of Georgia (NWAG) website. NWAG is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization registered in Atlanta Georgia, founded in the year 2000, and now in its 18th year of service in the local community of Atlanta Georgia, as well in our home country of Nigeria.

Our Mission to empower women, youth and children through our various initiatives, programs and fundraising efforts has helped us achieve the following milestones:

  • Awarded 506 scholarships to female college students so far, in Nigeria
  • Awarded 52 scholarships to college bound students in Atlanta, Georgia
  • Shipped over $2M worth of medical supplies to various states in Nigeria
  • Supports 12 orphanages with their nutritional program all over Nigeria
  • Collaborated with other Nigerian organizations for Medical Missions to Nigeria
  • Collaborates with other Nigerian organizations for an annual Health Fair in Atlanta
  • Locally supports Atlanta Community Food Bank, Hosea feed the Hungry, the International Women’s House, MedShare International, Sickle Cell Foundation, Southside Medical Center, Susan G. Komen Foundation.

 

These initiatives have been made possible through the dedication and tireless efforts of our members, together with the generous support of our sponsors and partners, who have all bought into our noble vision and worthy cause.

This year, in addition to our projects and programs, we will also embark on a capital campaign to raise funds for our NWAG House for Nigerian Arts, Culture and Empowerment. This “home” will enable us do more in our community, as it will serve as a museum and resource center to promote our Nigerian heritage and house important literature and artifacts for the benefit of public.

If you would like to make a difference in the life of another, as well as help promote our rich cultural heritage, please support us by becoming a sponsor, or partner. To do so, please click on the “Special Projects” link at the top of this page to make your donation, which is tax-deductible and will be used exclusively for the program of your choice.

We also look forward to seeing you and thanking you in person during one of our events in the community, this year.
Thank you and God bless!

Stella E. Etta, Ed. D.
(President, NWAG 2018-2019)
