Working with local stakeholders, we are embarking on an ambitious project to help build a museum that will protect valuable artifacts of the NOK ancient culture while simultaneously helping to educate people about the culture and traditions of the NOK. We are creating a book on this unique culture that will be used to generate profit for educational programs.
We are dedicated to working with local government officials and stakeholders to help build and support a Peace & Reconciliation Center. This center will play a central role in helping people overcome differences in Northern Nigeria.
