Humanity for Africa Foundation, Inc. (HFAF), on Saturday, July 7, 2018, held its Award Ceremony and Fund Raising Banquet in New Jersey, United States, with very many important personalities in attendance.

At the very impressive event, held at Best Western Robert Treat Hotel, Newark, New Jersey, the President/Founder of the Foundation, Hon. Okems Innocent Okemezie, pointed out to the distinguished audience that the Foundation was set up in 2008 to support and promote education, health awareness and cultural integration and has, so far, recorded major achievements especially in provision of educational infrastructure and in establishment of Sister City relationships.

He called on Nigerians in Diaspora to invest in the development of education in the country of their birth, especially at the primary level, noting with dismay that the primary schools that produced most of the great men and women of today are regrettably run down and in desperate need of help.

The keynote address was delivered by Nigeria’s Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN), Professor Tijjani Muhammad-Bande.

The theme of the program was “Educational Development in Nigeria: The Role of the Diaspora.”

Jimmy Sherlock, Founder of Reborn International Outreach, Frakas Mo’ Fire (Val Amadi), CEO VAL MEDIA Inc,  Joseph Adewumi  of Amarachi Restaurant  and Catherine Wilson, the President and CEO of United Way of Essex and West Hudson were honored specially with Awards at the ceremony.
