We are the charity next door, a non-profit, non-governmental charity organization headquartered in New Hampshire, U.S.A. The organization was founded by Mr. Martin Nwabueze and his wife Dr. Chisomu Nwabueze. Martin and Chisomu are first generation African migrants, and both are Pharmacists with combined 40 years of practice experience in the United States. Martin is employed by Cardinal Health at the Massachusetts state office of Pharmacy service and Chisom is a manager at Walgreens. In addition to his full time work as a pharmacist, Martin also works part time as a ride share driver with all earnings from Uber strictly directed towards charity including the running of Tilova for Africa. The couple is blessed with two wonderful sons, Osinachi and Munachi.
Martin and Chisomu have a wide range of experience of years of charitable work both in USA and abroad as donors to various charitable endeavors and as volunteers helping in one way or another to bring positive change in different communities.
As African migrants the couple considers themselves blessed for the opportunity the United States has given to them but never forgets their root and the suffering and tribulations of those in Africa that are not as lucky. Their desire to lend a helping hand to the less privileged in Africa and the unfortunate killing of a dear friend in South Africa for no other reason but being gay were the driving forces that ultimately led to the birth of this charity organization. As founders the couple has worked over the years to assemble a team of more than 500 volunteers of different nationalities spread across Africa and the United States comprising of Human Rights activists, doctors, country experts, lawyers, journalists, donors and others who work to protect and assist the neediest in Africa such as the vulnerable minorities, the hunger stricken, the sick and homeless as well as children in need.
At Tilova for Africa, we direct our advocacy towards governments, religious groups and businesses in Africa, pushing them to change or enforce their laws, policies and practices to protect the fundamental human rights of marginalized minorities and the downtrodden. We also gather a coalition of kindhearted willing donors that donate to guarantee that our objectives with regards to poverty alleviation, educational empowerment, health care services and other advocacies are met. To ensure our fairness and build trust, we review all donations to ensure that they are consistent with our policies, mission, and values to ultimately guarantee that every donation is directed towards a just cause and in accordance with the wishes of donors.
Our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly in our resolve and the actions of our services and initiatives. From the moment we started we understood that by working together, little efforts could synergize to overcome big challenges much more efficiently, which is why we plead with you to join us as we strive to make a positive change in all of our pursuits so that little by little, through our collective efforts we shall all play a part in making the world a better place.
