Our Projects

The Nokuri Foundation recognizes the massive need to serve and support our communities both in the United States and at large through establishment of academic, health, economic, social, and religious programs. Communalism, partnerships, and heritage are at the core of our values. These were values shared by our parents Christopher and Beatrice Nokuri that was passed down to the children and in hopes to continue this legacy of philanthropy.

The Nokuri Foundation proudly supports Faith International Rescue Ministries (FIRM) which is a registered Christian Non-Governmental Organization based in Limbe, Cameroon. It was founded in 1992 by Mrs. Beatrice Nokuri, with its mission geared towards the spiritual, social and economic empowerment of young woman faced with enormous challenges and limited opportunities to better their lives.

 

FIRM organizes workshops, seminars, conferences, retreats, mission trips, excellence awards for students and counseling services throughout the coastal plains of Cameroon, with extensions in Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States of America.
