The scholarship has helped many female students who are academically sound but socially and culturally disadvantaged.
About Nigeria Women Association of Georgia
Nigeria Women Association of Georgia was established in 2000 by a group of women who deemed it necessary to make impacts in Nigerian society. It was born out of concern for Nigerian women’s affairs. It all happened when Nigerian women who lived in Georgia then attended the meeting convened by the wife of former Consul-General where they discussed issues affecting women and then thought out how they would find a solution to those issues. Then the convened women unanimously agreed to find NWAG which they see would be a panacea to nip those situations in the bud as a contribution of women to society. The organization believes so much in women empowerment, youth, and children selfless services.
