Benefit Gala & Awards

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

The Pierre Hotel, New York City

The NHEF Gala commemorates the efforts of trailblazing Nigerians and friends of Nigeria, who have contributed to the country’s prosperity both at home and abroad. We believe that in recognizing these outstanding achievements we are reshaping Nigeria’s image on the global stage and changing the narrative on what it means to be Nigerian. Through this, we hope to inspire and motivate the next generation of Nigerian leaders.
