Harlem, New York
Kechie's Project Founder Nkechi Ogbodo and contributing supporters continue the ongoing mission to provide educational and mentoring opportunities for underprivileged young women in Nigeria and in New York City communities.
Kechie's Project has provided the current annual funds for school tuition, after school programs, and uniforms with the assistance of the Vice Principal Mr. Stephen Edeh, coordinator of our program at the Community Technical Secondary School "Obinagu Uwani". Chief Celsus Nwodo, Chairman of the School's Parent Teacher's Association was full of praise for Kechie's Project commending the impact and difference the organization is making in the lives of the students in Obinagu-Uwani Akpugo, Enugu State.
In Makoko, Lagos, Kechie's Project is funding after school programs, clothing, school supplies, and other basic needs for selected candidates in this most impoverished area. Ogo Maduewesie, Founder of Vitiligo NGO in Nigeria voluntarily coordinates Kechie's Project programs in Lagos.
In New York City, fulfilling our commitment to our local community in Harlem, Ms. Nkechi Ogbodo hosted a "Welcome Back to School” luncheon with representative girls from Bread and Roses High School. The girls were thrilled to have Kechie's Project visit their school and were provided lunch of African food. We plan to organize a cultural music week for their school featuring a variety of music from different cultures. We also plan to provide requested Scientific calculators for their classroom use.
