Our History


In Early 2000, the wife of the then Consul General of Nigeria in Atlanta, Mrs. Dayo Keshi convened a meeting in her home with concerned Nigerian women who wanted to make a positive impact in Nigeria. Those women were Mrs. Abby Ebodaghe, Mrs. Julie Ajayi, Mrs. Pamela Nwiloh, Mrs. Shade Arowoselu, Ms. Mfon Ufot and Mrs. Toyin Olowofoyeku. The enthusiasm among the ladies was electrifying. They left that meeting with a mandate to go back to the Nigerian community and invite as many Nigerian women as possible to attend the first meeting of the organization. At that first meeting, the women were so excited to be there, they talked about their hopes and dreams and about the potential of Nigerian women working together. They left that day with renewed passion and a clear vision —to collectively serve and empower Nigerian women and children at home and abroad.
