WHAT MOTIVATES US
We love Ndokwa land, Nigeria, and our adopted country, the U.S.A. Our desire to fulfill the tenets of responsible citizenship is what motivates us to do what we do. We are determined to contribute to the establishment and the maintenance of the excellent reputation of all Ndokwa sons and daughters, wherever we are in the United States of America.
WHAT WE HAVE DONE
Since its inception, the Ndokwa Association in America has awarded a full four-year university scholarship to one student, per local government, in Ndokwa land, for the past six years.
Over the past six years, the N.A.I.A. installed six borehole wells in remote rural communities of Ndokwa.
We have organized conventions in various cities within the U.S.A., bringing together our Ndokwa diaspora. This event, which takes place in a different city, every two years, features traditional dances, guests from Nigeria, and offers our children and our families the opportunity to make friends and renew old friendships.
