This is the website of the Nigerian Ladies Association of Texas (NLATX). Founded in 2002 on the principles of integrity, humanity, individual excellence, respect, and community service to one another, the association is comprised of Nigerian women, spouses of Nigerian men and mothers of Nigerian children who reside in the state of Texas, with a unified focus on fellowship, community and family values.
With a primary mission to find ways to contribute to and improve the welfare and development of Nigeria and our adopted country the United States of America, the association is committed to meeting its objectives of promoting better health and healthcare services, education, networking opportunities, and individual professional growth. The association also tries to meet its objectives by sharing experiences and resources of culture in the communities we reside in.
By working in collaboration with other women groups in Nigeria and the United States, we have contributed to the education of orphanages in Nigeria, provided specialised care to children born of HIV/AIDS mothers, provided schololarship to deserving young ladies of African descent enrolled in the Texas Women’s University, TX, and contributed healthcare services to the residents of rural Nigeria.
This year 2013, we are taking another leap forward to implement the installation of boreholes in Nigerian villages with the aim of providing sustainable sources of potable water for the children of rural Nigeria.
Next year, we have plans to collaborate with cancer foundations in Nigeria and physicians here in the United States to provide periods of free healthcare screenings to rural communities in Nigeria.
We can only do this with your help.
As you navigate our website, we hope that you will find ways to work in partnership with us to improve the lives of Nigerian women and children here and in Nigeria. We equally hope that as you do this, you will find our values, mission and vision well aligned with your own core values of family, fellowship and community.
