About The Wheel of Hope Initiative
Our Founder and President, Mrs. Charity Nwaneri attended Queen’s School, Enugu, Nigeria. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Georgetown University and Master’s degree in Health Services Administration from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., U.S.A. She has worked in different health care facilities in the United States and Nigeria as a nurse and a Health Services Administrator.
Mrs. Nwaneri has always been passionate about the plight of less privileged people from her early years of life. She witnessed a brutal civil war in her country that claimed thousands of lives and saw many people living in abject poverty and suffering with tremendous hardship, especially women and children. Since then she made a decision to help and fight for a better life for the most vulnerable: women, youth and children through her three identified Pillars of Empowerment: Education, Health and Economic Empowerment.
This led to the establishment of the “Wheel of Hope Initiative” (WOHI), a non-profit organization with a 501(C)(3) tax deductible status. She is the founder and president of the organization with a Board of dedicated members who share the same vision with her. She believes that if everyone contributes a little to the less privileged, it will go a long way than doing nothing. She believes that “Success is not measured by how much you have acquired but by how many lives you have impacted and the conscience of a nation is measured by how they take care of their less privileged. ”
Our mission is to create sustainable activities and services that will alleviate poverty and improve the quality of life of women and children in rural and underserved urban areas.
