Organisers of Nigeria Philanthropy Awards said it is targetting individuals that have contributed to the course of humanity in Nigeria for the awards.

The project director, Emma Bricks Oko while addressing journalists in Abuja said the award is beyond handing plaques to awardees. He said the award will serve as an induction into the Philanthropy Community of Nigeria, (PCN) for recipients.

Oko disclosed that the award ceremony will hold with a gala night to celebrate the philanthropists.

The director said the PCN is a coalition of philanthropists committed to fighting against poverty and hunger in Nigeria.

Oko, however, said it was disappointing that philanthropic service providers in Nigeria are not celebrated.

He called for emulation of philanthropists who sacrifice their hard-earned resources and time to put smiles on people’s faces.
