Our good work is through the Dookue Memorial School. The school is named in honor of Chief Dookue Naanee, who was a man who understood the value and importance of education. He helped many families by paying their childrens school fees. Chief Dookue, is the father of HHAW Founder and Executive Director Agbora Naanee. Agbora came to the US in 1980 to pursue higher education, receiving his MBA from City University in Seattle, WA.
Agbora has the same vision his father carried. "The area is very poor, there are no jobs, no sources of income, and there is no effective, efficient, or productive way for the children to get out of this cycle. My vision for the school is to provide a place where underprivileged children have a place to learn a formal education, skills, and gain resources that will help them to achieve their full potential.
Help Us Make A Bigger Impact!
Our mission is to impact and inspire change through projects and initiatives , so that the cycle of poverty as a by-product of lack of education and resources in the area of Biara, Nigeria can come to an end.
Everyday necessities we take for granted like schooling, healthy drinking water, and knowing when our next meal is coming from isn't readily available to over 800,000 people that live in the region. Our mission is to change that!
Over 65% of the children in the area stay because the parents can’t afford to send them to school. The result is the youth aren’t given a chance with education to change their circumstances. Our vision is to provide them with education, meals, and programs so that they have the tools to achieve their full potential.
