The Organization

With a heart to give back to the Rivers State, Nigerian community that she grew up in, Rita founded the Association of Nigerian Women Leaders in Diaspora (ANWLD). It is a growing foundation of female leaders whose collective efforts have helped alleviate many young children, families and extended households in Nigeria.

The Association of Nigerian Women Leaders in Diaspora (ANWLD), known as "ANWLD" is a non-governmental organization formed with the goal of empowering Nigerian women leaders. ANWLD is composed of emerging women leaders from all ethnic groups of Nigeria living in Diaspora. Our organization finds creative ways to improve the lives of the average Nigerian woman through social advocacy, women empowerment, education, net-working, preventive health education and economic empowerment even at the grass root.

Membership consists of educated professional women leaders of Nigerian descent residing outside Nigeria. ANWLD also adopts non-Nigerian women leaders who are interested in the well-being of Nigerian women.

The organization will fund projects, provide economic assistance and promote women initiatives and developments, good governance, democracy, accountability, and rule of law in Nigeria.

Your generosity - no matter how small or large - will contribute to many lives through education, healthcare, women empowerment and community development. The help you will extend to us will be highly appreciated. Give back today! Let the Association of Nigerian Women Leaders in Diaspora (ANWLD) be your vehicle to help those in need.
