Our Founding Story
This is a story of two former Nigerian national youth leaders who are using every contact and opportunity around then to garner an international effort to restore hope and banish poverty among millions of adults, women, young people and children in Africa and elsewhere.
Afrikind was established in Texas on August 28, 2012, by Chijike K Ndukwu and Robert Ogueri Unegbu. The founding documents indicated their dedication to alleviating poverty, hunger, and disease among peoples across the globe, especially in Africa. Afrikind is a response and intervention on the dire situation of many poor people around the world, especially in rural areas. With the effects of globalization, corruption, lack of good governance and climate change, the population of people who cannot meet their daily needs for food, housing, clothing,and access to health care and clean water has continued to rise.
In many rural areas, there is no health insurance and poor people who are sick deal with the ” pay or die” healthcare out of pocket cost which further drags them down the rungs of poverty, high morbidity, and mortality rates. The Africa Medicaid Program is one project that expanded access to health care, education and refills for 285 poor people in Eastern Nigeria, suffering from hypertension and diabetes, at no cost. Since 2013, Afrikind has partnered with Ezinihitte Mbaise Local Government Council and Amazing Grace Mission, together with many other mission groups who support this project. It is this kind of response that allows poor people to save money, become healthier and learn new skills that Afrikind has continued to promote since its founding.
We are also invested in agriculture. We partner with GrainPRO and other sustainable agriculture , food security and climate change organization to restore agriculture as the most viable poverty alleviation program. Although climate change has become a very major problem to many rural farmers, we are working to provide information and adaptation practices that can favor the production of food and to promote food security. We have extended our tentacles to every many individuals and organizations towards attaining our mission and furthering our vision.
Afrikind has remained true to her founders’ vision and commitment to empowering poor people to achieve self-worth and self-sufficiency through direct assistance, education, economic development, healthcare and sustainable agriculture programs. On September 12, 2013, Afrikind obtained a public charity status with the United States Internal Revenue Service, making all donations to Afrikind tax deductible.
