Nigeria Connects Incorporated is a non-governmental organization located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. We are committed to the overall growth and development of humanity through our various ministries and interventions, some of which are listed below:
Nigeria Connects started servicing the citizens of Nigeria six years ago. We started with the Afrika Reads Project which gave birth to the Nigeria Reads/NigeriaConnects project, and through these projects we have been able to reach out to and support several educational institutions in Nigeria, providing them with books and other educational resources. Some of these institutions include but are not limited to the following: Ondo State University; Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife; University of Ilorin; Redeemed Bible College, Lagos; Edwin Clark University; Crown Heights University, Ilorin; Good News International School, Asaba; Jesus Kids Orphanage, Ibadan, Nigeria.
Through the activities and work of Nigeria Connects, we have also been able to sign two MOUs with some institutions of Higher learning in Nigeria.
NIGERIA READS: Nigeria Reads is a book/educational material drive that we do annually. Through this project, Nigeria Connects collects donated books/educational materials from universities/colleges, libraries, churches and schools in the US, and donate them to institutions where these are needed in Nigeria. We also help build relationships between universities in the US and those in Nigeria through signing of MOUs.
Help Our Public Education & HOPE Project
We help to create awareness about the needs of our educational institutions in Nigeria using social media and to generate resources to take care of the identified needs.
Project Coordinator: Pastor Funmi Adesesan.
