Welcome to Nyawa (nee-ya-wa) Funding Group, or as we commonly refer to ourselves, NFG. We are a registered 501(c)(3) small not-for-profit company founded in 2008. Our primary focus is on the healthcare and educational needs of people in West Africa, starting in the Nyawa region of Sierra Leone. Our goal is to provide a foundation that will allow Sierra Leoneans to flourish and grow. Books. Pencils. Paper. Supplies for clinics and the promotion of healthy living. Things that can have a profound effect on lives in Sierra Leone.
This is very special to us. Our Board of Directors have a combined 40+ years of time spent living in Sierra Leone, and over 70 combined years in West Africa. A fact that offers emotional perspective and intrinsic motivation for the cause on our behalf. We’ve seen what it was and what it has become. And while the challenges may appear to be overwhelming, we face them knowing we can make a difference. We understand that we cannot solve all the problems in the region, but we can offer an invaluable asset that is now scarce to a lot of its people: opportunity.
This is our goal. This is who we are. And we would love nothing more than for you to join us in our effort. We appreciate your stopping by our site for a visit. We hope you’ll stay a while.
