About Us





On behalf of the Trustees of Wakirike Development Coalition, I am pleased to welcome you to our website. Wakirike Development Coalition was inaugurated on 29 May 2010 in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. as a non-political organisation open to well-meaning sons and daughters of Kirike Be Se from all over the world. We are apolitical, focused on development and have a commitment to lift our people out of poverty on the road to prosperity one family at a time. All we have been able to achieve has been through the voluntary contributions of our members and a few friends of the Coalition. We are one family with integrity as our watchword.

Everything is done transparently and we account for every naira, pound and dollar that has so far been given to us. Our long range strategy is to advocate, lobby and aggregate visionary and people-oriented leaders in our land to facilitate sustainable development. We have so far raised funds from subscriptions paid by new members and the continuing free will donation by Wakirike sons and daughters who are existing members of the Coalition……and a few others who are yet to take the next step of becoming members!  We are thankful to God that every member of the Coalition wants to ‘put something back’ to our motherland.

We are also thankful to friends of our land who have extended their material and moral support to us. May God reward you all richly. The last few months have been very exciting with the commencement of the Coalition’s Skills Acquisition Programme. We are keen to work with corporate bodies, small and medium enterprise organisations and encourage you to partner with the Coalition as you execute your Corporate and Social Responsibility. Our members have a track record of managing successful programmes in their individual pursuits prior to coming together to form the Coalition.

Together, we can achieve so much more. Perhaps, the time has now come for you to become a financial contributor to the on-going projects of the Coalition (if you are not already doing so). I also encourage our current members to TELL others about the Coalition and invite them to join. In 2017 and beyond, we are looking forward to more public-private-voluntary sector partnerships. Let me conclude by again sending our profound gratitude to all of you who have contributed your time, talent and money to the work of the Coalition in the last seven years. We trust that you will be encouraged by our effort so far to give even more for good causes in our land. May God bless you
