According to Bella, who is also the Chairman, Abumet Nigeria Ltd, with the UNICEF report that “One in every five of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria, 2021 is a challenge that we must collectively address. Therefore…I am honored to work with Chinenye and her team to ensure that children from low-income households have a future where their dreams and aspirations can become a reality.”

collaborate with various NGOs around the world.
