A BRIEF HISTORY
The Anointed Fingers of Love and Care Foundation (AFLCF) is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that is non-political, non-religious, non-sectional, and non-racial. The Foundation is duly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission, Abuja, Nigeria with certificate Number CAC/IT/No. 52352.
It is established as a permanent public property to help the youths, women and the aged or the most vulnerable in the society who are in dire need of assistance, especially to advance their education, health and spiritual well being.
The Foundation is an offshoot from the award of scholarships by Professor D.V. Uza to orphans and indigent pupils and students of Kwande Local Government Area in Secondary and Tertiary Institutions within Benue State, Nigeria.
The idea of the Foundation came to birth within the course of the presentation and the interaction of the Chief Promoter of the project, Professor D.V. Uza with the beneficiaries of the milk of his kindness and magnanimity. The scope of the Foundation was expanded to other areas of extreme need, especially, remote areas of Benue State in particular and Nigeria at large. The Chief Promoter of the Foundation, Professor D.V. Uza is a person, who believes in a life of sharing, especially with the needy and less privileged and has a concern for others generally. At the time he conceived the idea of the scholarship, Prof. D. V. Uza was not the most illustrious son of Kwande origin in Benue State. It is also pertinent to put on record that as a person, the Foundation has no benefit to confer on him or any of his immediate family members. To decide therefore to commit his resources to the award of scholarships to the less privileged members of the society at a time when most average Nigerians are pursuing personal causes and the time he has put into pursuing the realization of its vision puts him forth as a highly humane and extremely magnanimous person.
The Anointed Fingers of Love and Care Foundation (AFLCF) is registered with a Ten (10) member Board of Trustees with Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria with Certificate of Registration Number CAC/IT/No. 52352.
It is a Non- Governmental Organization (NGO) that is non-political, non-religious, non-sectional, and non-racial, and its corporate Headquarters is at No.46/48, VerishimaUza Close, High Level, Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria.
