NWAG celebrates its 21st Anniversary of positively transforming the lives of women, youth and children in our local Metro Atlanta Community and Nigeria in the year 2021.
It is my distinct honor and privilege to introduce to you the Nigerian Women Association of Georgia (NWAG). NWAG is a group of accomplished individuals from various professional callings, who have agreed to harness their resources, talents and efforts with the common objective of improving the lives and well-being of the less privileged in their communities, both in Nigeria and in Georgia, as well as promoting the cultural heritage of Nigeria.
The mission of The Nigerian Women Association of Georgia is to serve our local communities as well as our country Nigeria through empowerment, cultural enrichment and education of women, children and the youth, thereby fostering unity, togetherness and excellence in our collective pursuits.
Since its inception as a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization in 2000, NWAG has positively impacted the lives of the youth, women and children, both in Atlanta, Georgia and Nigeria. (Please find above attached NWAG Fact Sheet of our activities to date.) As you can see, NWAG’s mission is highly alive and waxing stronger than ever before each passing year!
To further ignite our mission of empowerment, we are hoping to expand our programs. Specifically, to:
- Extend The Scholarship Program in Nigeria To Female Survivors Of Human Trafficking,
- Establish the Center For Nigerian Arts, Culture And Empowerment (NWAG HOUSE)
- Adopt and Fund More Orphanages in Nigeria,
- Increase Our Health/Medical Supplies Program Initiatives.
Our goal is to raise $1,500,000 (One Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) to support these expanded endeavors. Yes, it is an ambitious goal because “the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” Can we count on you to dream big with us and become our partner in the vanguard of effort to serve humanity?
If you would like to make a difference in the lives of the underprivileged as well as help promote our rich cultural heritage, please support us by becoming a sponsor, or partner.

We look forward to your support and partnership and Thanking you in Advance.
