THE KWANDALA FOUNDATION “Give A Coin For Life”. It is a CAC registered (CAC/IT/NO 38360) Non-Government Organization, initiated by a group of concerned citizens in Kano North-West Nigeria, in January 2005 following the ASIAN TSUNAMI DISASTER, with the sole aim of raising funds, materials and technical aids to provide relief for victims, communities and environments devastated by any disasters, anywhere in the world, irrespective of race, colour, gender, age, religion or location.

INITIATING PROJECT

KWANDALA 4 TSUNAMI PROJECT was thus initiated. It all started from the simple idea of collecting at least One (1) Kwandala from each and every Nigerian, if we can, to help the victims of South-East Asian Tsunami Disaster. Initially, providing relief for the TSUNAMI DEVASTATION of lives, properties and environment was our main aim, but during the course of our planning, a crucial question occurred to the Founders, which is “After the Tsunami Project, what next?” So it was agreed that our effort should go beyond the immediate target. Thus THE KWANDALA FOUNDATION was born.

SOURCE OF FUNDING

As a Non-Governmental Organization, one of our major source of funding is through solicitation of donations from the organization’s members and the general compassionate public both within the immediate society (Kano and environs), as well as the rest of the world. Thus when “Kwandala4…” projects are launched, members from all walks of life and from all over the world find it willingly duty bound upon them to contribute something i.e. time, expertise, knowledge, materials, connections, financially etc towards achieving the success of such humanitarian projects.

If you find it kind enough in your heart to GIVE even if it is a single coin (kwandala) towards making life better for the less privilege, then direct your compassion to us.
