In 2006, Evans Nwankwo, and his wife, Catherine, founded the NuWay Foundation, with the vision to transform the lives and economic conditions of the less fortunate through education, community building and economic development.
NuWay Foundation’s first project is reaching out to improve the lives of those in Evans’ home village in Awa, Nigeria. It is one of the poorest on the African continent, with 90 percent of the population living on less than $2 a day and life expectancy being only 43 years (compared to 77 in the U.S.). Nigeria has the third largest HIV/AIDS population and the largest number of AIDS orphans in the world.
In the ten years it has been in existence, NuWay’s efforts and funds have benefited the village with 14 fresh water installations, 75 interest-free loans for small businesses, medical aid and a generator to the local clinic, and school supplies and funding additional school teachers for village schools.
