Committees

Education
The education committee is responsible for the WAZOBIA INIITIATIVE whose purpose is to share and showcase the rich and diverse culture of Nigeria through school and community outreach. This committee also supports youth development and academic excellence by awarding scholarships to female University students in Nigeria and high school seniors in the Atlanta area.

Since 2000, NWAG members have visited an average of four schools a year for outreach presentations. The presentation is a variety of age appropriate activities from a Social Studies-curriculum based power-point presentation, fashion show, show and tell cultural display, folktale and story-telling, and interactive question and answer session, depending on the audience. In addition, the Education Committee coordinates the annual WAZOBIA Sunfest during the summer. This is a summer enrichment program open to young people ages 5-15 to learn about Nigeria. The children learn about the history, languages, education system, ethnic groups, traditions, arts, craft and other cultural aspects associated with Nigeria, all of which they are tested on, before the day ends
