The New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation (NEEDCSI) is a phenomenal organization. Through the direction of its visionary leadership, the organization continues to be responsive to community needs and changing landscapes. Its highly competent and professional staff reflect their hearts as they serve the women and men in their multiple programs. I continue to be most impressed by NEEDCSI's commitment and track record of successfully convening community stakeholders at all levels to brainstorm creative solutions that will improve the quality of life for everyone. I have found NEEDCSI as an organization and its staff to be valuable partners in peacebuilding and human development.
The organization help communities move out of fragility to becoming more resilient. The organization also use integrated approach to tackle the root causes of conflicts.
New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation is an organization have been fortunate to attend their events, since my encounter with the foundation it has been awesome.

For almost a decade, I have personally been closely monitoring and in most cases participating in New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation (NEEDCSI) programs. So, it gives me great pleasure to write a few lines on the activities of New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation activities from my personal perspectives. As a religious leader and an educator, it wasn’t difficult to ascertain the level of transparent and quality leadership exhibited by NEEDCSI founder and the amiable team members as all their work in their various areas of interest are carried out with an enviable character, transparent and true compassion for the individuals life’s they touch and in the society where they operate.
My personal experience with NEEDCSI started in the early 2000s with their annual Interfaith academy program which hosts religious leaders, scholars, and youth with the aim of fostering intercultural dialogue and interfaith dialogue to kindle knowledge sharing and promoting harmony in communities and the nation. As a religious leader coming from a minority religious group, International Society for Krishna Consciousness popularly known as the Hare Krishna Movement in this part of the world where NEEDCSI operate, the warm reception and sense of inclusive participation received gave us a first hand understanding that the organization leadership and its members knew what they were doing and want to achieve. The organization's ability to make public all its financial dealings without being called for is a plus.
Due to such a level of satisfactory experience from our first program with the organization, we have been so drawn to NEEDCSI that we practically have become a part of the organization even though not a formal member of the organization but by the partnership has been involved in practically all NEEDCSI programs. Over time we have participated as resource persons at their several programs and the more we get to know more of NEEDCSI other programs and activities, we get closer to the organization.
The organization programs which includes but not limited to Interfaith Academy, Peace Building Education, Leadership Training, Nation Building through their Entrepreneurial Training Skills, Organized Dialogue among stakeholders including Peace Builders, Government Agencies Civil Society Organization, Non-Governmental Organizations and other National Gatekeepers etc. stands as a great example of an organization that truly reflects the goals of international organizations such as United Nation, UNESCO, URI, Parliament of World religion, ECOSOC, and several others in the same category which they partner with.
The most critical challenge that humanity faces globally today is the upsurge of Religious Fundamentalism and Leadership Crisis, NEEDCSI programs, in my opinion, stands as a ECOSOC intervention in the history of humanity and surely deserve the commendations and support of great minds, governments, and international organizations.

I came in contact with New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation Founder in 2010 during there peace conference in Jos, Nigeria and that was the turning point in my life and career. The event changed my life positively and today I picked a career in Non-Profit sector because of that singular contact and the ripple effect is immeasurable.
Till now I still have a sustained relationship with the founder 9years after and of recent he even recommended me for Obama Scholar Foundation Fellowship which I hope God will allow me to be selected for more service to mankind. If I have not come in contact with this founder through his foundation I dont know what I would have become but his singular act through the foundation saved my life and career as an orphan without direction in life at that point of meeting him and that of many people that I have privilege to equally affect positively would have missed that opportunities and so goes the train. As of today am a Public Health Expert with better prospect all thanks to God for making me to meet the Founder through his foundation. I can not exhaust the good deeds of this foundation and it impact on the country and the continent. Thank you sir for everything you do for humanity and I hope you read this because I have never even share this with you before. I respect and honor you sir then, today and till my breath will stop.
New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation is reinventing and adopting new strategies on how a society can be transformed. Their exceptional work foster strong and healthy relationships through their impactful and practical programs which promote among other things, excellent interpersonal skills especially among youth and meaningful dialogue among diverse groups.
The first thing that attracted me to this organisation, was their outstanding and highly motivated team members who are always driven by their passion and exceptional commitment towards transforming lives. I must say their passion is contagious! which I consider a good thing in the sense that it will trigger a chain reaction which will eventually give way to a progressive and positive social change.
New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation is doing amazing work, empowering women and youth with skills for self-reliance. I have witnessed first-hand. The Foundation's Livelihood Skills program for Muslim and Christian Women in Nigeria, with support from PIN has been very successful
NEW ERA EDUCATIONAL AND CHARITY SUPPORT FOUNDATION
Is an organization with impactful project activities. They work in the area of women and youth empowerment, education, violent extremism/DE-radicalization. The organization has established peace clubs in secondary schools across Nigeria. Working as a team member in some of these projects has been an impactful experience for me. Learning, networking and gaining more skills. Interacting with different communities through these projects implementation gave me a better understanding of the challenges people and communities go through, and the possible ways to meet those needs
