Dr. Afam Atu

Founder / President

Dr Afamefuna Atu is the founder and president of Kings Care Foundation [KCF], an NGO whose primary aim is to empower children, youths and rural women, educationally and economically.

On the reason why he founded KCF, Dr Atu attributed it to two major events in his life, while growing up.

Firstly, was the stark reality of living in deep and extreme poverty with his parents and seven siblings, growing up in Attakwu, without adequate food, safe water, proper sanitation, or healthcare.

Secondly, and most profound was a wise saying and advice his father gave him in his teens and has been imprinted in his heart, “to never look down on anybody, except, to look down to pull them up,”

These events motivated him to launch KCF as well as support other charity organizations, especially those geared towards the vulnerable. In his words “my resolve is to make sure no one I know or around me goes to bed hungry or experiences the kind of agony I experienced growing up in extreme poverty.”

Dr Atu is also an advocate of preventive medicine, since graduating from school, he has been working as a clinician in different hospitals. He provides care for victims of emotional and psychological trauma, and their families.

His experiences in dealing with critically ill and dying patients and their families, have increasingly nudged him towards not just caring for patients and their families but other individuals with psychological, social, financial, and educational needs.

Dr Atu is also an Agile Coach (a software expert), he helps big organizations to transition from the waterfall method of project management to an Agile Mindset using different Agile frameworks to deliver High-quality value to their customers, increase organizational revenue, and mitigate waste through inspection and adaptation, and continuous improvement. His experience in the software tech space has helped him to understand Africa’s need for more technological innovation. This led him to establish Agile Digital Consulting, which trains young African women and men in digital innovations to solve challenges and encourage technological innovations.

Dr Afamefuna Atu was born in Attakwu, a rural community in Enugu State, eastern Nigeria, and living in the United States. As his career path, Afamefuna specialized in Trauma Counseling and Medical Ethics and Agile Transformation across different domains. He loves to keep fit, and most of his leisure time is spent with family, in the gym, he also loves to play soccer, read, travel, and talk politics. His preoccupation is working on his foundation, KCF.
Dr Afamefuna Atu strongly believes that in a generous community, no one should be left behind.

Anokwute Genevieve

President Of The Board In Nigeria

My name is  Anokwute Genevieve Ngozi. I am a Nigerian residing in Abuja.

I have a Master of Science degree in Management from the University of Leicester in England.

I have worked in the banking industry for nine years. I currently work as the CEO/ Operations manager of Ross-Frigers Global Services, LTD, a building and construction servicing company in Abuja, Nigeria. I am also the president of the Kings Care Empowerment Foundation in Nigeria, which has its head office in Saginaw, Michigan, USA, and Nigerian branch offices in Abuja and Enugu, Nigeria.

I was attracted to the Kings Care Foundation based on my family’s experience with poverty during childhood. I have seen a great deal of domestic abuse of women around my community and the impact of girls not being allowed to go to school because they are female. The Kings Care Foundation works to restore the dignity of women and empower them to fight for their future. I am attracted to pursue this struggle because I believe every girl deserves an opportunity to reach their God-given potential. At Kings Care Foundation, this is what we strive for. Giving voice to the voiceless. Helping women break the cycle of poverty, which often keeps them trapped in abusive relationships.

My career has trained me to be a caregiver, independent, and a business development personality.

The following training has also expanded my horizon in business development and management. An On-Line Training (The Service Attitude) November 2008; Cash Management Training August 2009; People Management Skill July 2011; Banking Fraud: Implication and Causes July 2011; ATM Management Training July 2011; Operational Risk Management July 2011 and GBAC Online Fundamentals Training Course with emphasis on SARS-COV-2/ COVID 19, May 2020.
