2023 NWAG Scholarship Program Details:
In 2000, Mrs. Dayo Keshi invited a handful of dynamic Nigerian women to her residence to discuss how we could combine our efforts to impact the lives of Nigerians at home and abroad.
Many of the women gathered were accomplished individuals who belonged to various community organizations.
