Nigeria Philanthropy Awards has been described as a defining honour for gold hearted Nigerians and a foundation for the establishment of the philanthropy community of Nigeria.
The project Director, Emma Bricks Oko who made the pronouncement in Abuja during the weekend while addressing journalists on the plan towards the gala night said Nigeria Philanthropy Awards is not just the handover of awards plaques to individuals but it will also serve as an induction into the Philanthropy Community of Nigeria, (PCN) for all awardees.
The PCN is a coalition of philanthropists who would work as a team to help in the fight against poverty and hunger in the land
Mr Bricks is worried that philanthropic service providers in Nigeria are not celebrated.
He noted that individuals bring out their hard earned resources and time to put smile on the faces of the underserved without the hope of being rewarded by anyone but for God.
He argued further that such persons should be given a special place like their counterparts in other parts of the world.
