Charity is close to our hearts
It is said that "Charity begins at home" and this is why NUGA supports a number of credible charities.
Anawim Home - Association of the Poorest of the Poor
In 1995, Anawim Home began in a rented apartment in Abuja Nigeria. The centre immediately became a Home for destitute, street boys, abandoned babies, unwanted pregnant young girls, prostitutes etc. These people were provided shelter, food, clothing and Medicare.
In addition to their residence programs, Anawim Home provides education and youth programming to over 400 local children through the Anawim School and outreach programs in Nigeria. In Ghana, they provide care and resettlement services to ostracized elderly women and educational opportunities to girls who have lost their family support after refusing forced marriage. They also provide access to medical care, food, clothing, and adult skills education to hundreds of downtrodden, ill, and impoverished individuals both within and outside of their walls.
African Child Trust (ACT)
African Child Trust (ACT) supports the education of disadvantage children and orphans.
ACT's vision is to relieve poverty and advance development in Africa by educating disadvantaged children and orphans and supporting needy widows through training so that they can generate income to sustain their families.
We provide funding to help pay for child schooling and to provide necessary support for the widow and her family. In many countries access to education is not free or affordable for the poor. This practical demonstration of caring brings hope to the children and the widows and contributes to breaking the long-term cycle of poverty.
ZANE is a relational charity founded in 2002. ZANE supports thousands of elderly people by giving aid, support and encouragement. ZANE also helps around 600 ex-service men and their wives and widows. The targeted elderly people are those on local pensions or without pensions at all. Having lived in Zimbabwe most or all of their lives, they may well have been part of the war effort in World War ll. Their pensions and savings have diminished to such an extent that they can no longer afford to live and many receive no (or very little) assistance from their relatives. Some in fact have been abandoned by relatives who have now moved country and have no more to do with them whatsoever.
Damilola Taylor Trust (DTT)
The Damilola Taylor Trust is committed to providing inner-city youths with opportunities to play, learn and live their lives free of fear and violence with optimism in the future where opportunities abound. We use the power of teams to coach, teach, and inspire youth to recognize and realize their dreams. We also use sports in particular football. Our main aim is to embark on projects that keep youth away from the streets and provide them with improved life chances.
Sickle Cell Society
The Sickle Cell Society supports and represents people affected by sickle cell disorder to improve their overall quality of life.
First set up as a registered charity in 1979, the Sickle Cell Society has been working alongside health care professionals, parents, and people living with sickle cell to raise awareness of the disorder. The Society’s aim is to support those living with sickle cell, empowering them to achieve their full potential.
Tobi Adeyemi Foundation (TAF)
The Tobi Adeyemi Foundation is a grant- making foundation set up to support and enable disadvantaged children & young people who have already shown some potential, get a first class education. The foundation was established in March 2011, following the sudden and unexpected death of Oluwatobi Adeyemi on the 5th of March 2011.
Akabusi Charity Trust (TACT)
The Akabusi Charitable Trust (TACT) was founded by Kriss Akabusi, MBE, Olympic Athlete and CEO of The Akabusi Company. Initially focusing on projects based in Nigeria, TACT recently launched its first UK based project and can now boast a strong UK front. Growing all the time, TACT is eager to continue its work in Nigeria whilst gaining momentum in the UK.
