About Us

In May 2014, A handful of select Nigerians and Nigerian American women living in the Maryland, DC, and Pensylvania Metropolis of The United States of America met at 5844 Belair RD, Baltimore Maryland to discuss the Birth of Nigerian Women Association Maryland Metro Inc. (NWAMM). Members are from different works of life, but with a common objective; to create change agents among Nigerians living in The United States of America through creative programs and project initiatives.
