COVID-19 Phase 2 Emergency food relief 2020

VAWEF has launched phase 2 of fundraising emergency food relief to help the rural poor in Nigeria who are most affected by the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to support the most vulnerable in Imo-state in Southeast of Nigeria and beyond with food and basic survival requirements targeting about 2000 recipients.

The Phase 2 relief response is due to the overwhelming hardship, poverty, and desperate need for nutritious food and basic healthcare requirements witnessed by our team on ground in Imo-state.

With the success of Phase-1 of COVID-19 response lunched in July 2020, VAWEF was able to help individuals and communities affected by the impact of the pandemic, with the following relief assistance:

Education for children

A means to eradicate poverty and empower children to become tomorrow’s great leaders.

“We are committed to protecting the rights of children and safeguarding against all forms of abuse, neglect, and exploitation”.


VAWEF facilitates the education and care of underprivileged and abandoned children in Nigeria. Since 2012 we have provided over 506 disadvantaged children, from primary to tertiary education with a personal education programme tailored specifically to their needs.

The education programme enables children to break the cycle of poverty and reach their full potential.

Women, Climate Change, and Food Security


Fighting poverty requires focusing on women to achieve equality. When you empower a woman, she becomes a catalyst for positive change whose success benefits everyone around her including her husbands, sons, brothers, and father.


Despite significant strides in addressing gender inequalities over the years, rural women are still among the most marginalized groups in society and are particularly vulnerable to current and future climate change and food insecurity.


They also earn less than men for the same tasks and have fewer rights to land and property, have fewer opportunities to engage in higher-value agribusiness opportunities because they commonly lack the skills, knowledge, finance and access to services they need.

Water and Sanitation Project

Everything comes back to water.

‘’A source of safe drinking water is the beginning of a new life for a community.

Safe water is the beginning of education for children

A Safe life for women and a stronger economic and better health for all’’

Helping communities create sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene in partnership with local communities in Nigeria is just one of the best ways we have found to promote sustainable development.


Why? Because the water crisis affects women, health, education and creates poverty.

VAWEF is creating a positive impact in the world where women and children are safe by promoting access to clean water for all.


Water & Women.

Many women spend 20 hours per week collecting water, some walk 7 miles a day, often for contaminated water. Too often the walk is not safe for them physically. It is women and the children who suffer the most without water, and who benefit most from access to it.


Capacity-building is critical to our involvement.

VAWEF thinks about the long-term result every step of the way. We want these communities to be independent of ongoing foreign aid for their water and solutions. Just like you and me, we want these communities to have reliable access to water and sanitation for generations!


This means that recipients are given the tools and trained to drill the bore holes and provide clean water themselves to more communities and when something breaks someone has the capacity to fix it. This will also create viable businesses and job opportunities in the communities


Please “Get Involved”

Your help saves lives, and access to clean water is just the right place to begin.
