This year has been one of the hardest for Nigerians, there are many people in need of food, shelter, healthcare and other basic things, but cannot afford them.
In the midst of all our own personal challenges it is easy to forget that no matter how small, there is something we can do to help someone whose situation is more dire than ours.
Despite these challenges facing charity work in Nigeria, Kiki James, the founder of ACE Charity has vowed not to give up.
ACE Charity is a non-profit organisation committed to providing literacy, support development and increase the quality of Education provided to the under-privileged. They have been actively helping the underpriviledge since inception.
A week ago, the organisation set up a kitchen in the Maiduguri IDP camp as they discovered children suffering from severe malnutrition.
She said on her instagram page that she plans to do even more in 2017,
Nigeria is not the easiest country to do charitable work, and I have quickly learnt that charity means different things to different people. “But that’s the challenge – to change the system more than it changes you” -Michael Pollan.
Every day I wake up more determined than the previous day to continue redefining what charity means in Nigeria and with that comes a lot of challenges. The beauty of this journey is, with every challenge comes growth, plus I am not interested if it’s not a challenge. “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all”-Helen Keller.
Looking forward to improving the lives of more people in 2017 on a colossal level! The best is yet to come.
