Welcome To Efiwe NGO
Welcome to Efiwe, We are a Non-Governmental organization with core focus on collecting and shipping University textbooks to Nigerian University libraries. This will help alleviate the lack in Nigerian Universities and expose the students to relevant texts. We are able to achieve this by collaborating with American Universities, Book donors, Student Volunteers, Donations, Nigerian Universities and Partnerships.
Efiwe is a non-profit organisation that is focused on enriching the Educational experience of Nigerian University Students and the Nigerian Youth. We believe that access to more and better books/textbooks will significantly impact on the Human Capital in Nigeria and therefore lead to a better populace and a better Nigeria.
We achieve our goal of supplying Nigerian libraries with better books by organising book donation drives in the US and seeking funds/donations to send the collected books back to Nigeria.
This idea was a product of a book drive organised by Philip Alabi, a Chemistry graduate student at Southern Illinois University (from May 2016-March 2017). He was able to collect and send over 1000 books to his Alma mater University (Tai Solarin University of Education, Nigeria).

The drive was an eye-opener for him and he thought of sending more books and reaching out to more American Universities for donations and participation.
