Saint Valentines vzw point of charity is Nigeria because the mentor and brain behind Saint Valentines vzw Wilfred Uwuimwonse Valentine was born in Nigeria, son of an accountant/business-man and a civil servant. Wilfred Valentine knows what it's like to live as a millionaire and what it's like to live poor as his parents went through different financial stages in life which played a huge roll in the early life of young Valentine. In Nigeria we know our way, we know how and where to reach the people who really need it, this is why our focus is Nigeria (We did like to bring humanitarian help to other poor countries but we wouldn't know where to start)
Saint Valentines vzw is a honest and legitimate organization with tax number (VAT nr) BTW: 0644.481.064 registered in Belgium, in the east Flanders provincial. Our mission has already been stated, follow and support us, as we realize it all.
At Saint Valentine vzw we make the conscious decision to send as little things as possible overseas to Nigeria and aim to purchase a maximum in products locally. The reason for this is an often little known fact: The shipping of clothes, books, etc to Africa actually does more harm than good, as the impact of this has a devastating effect on local economies. It becomes impossible for small retailers to sell their own products, for they can’t compete with “free” overseas supplies. And precisely these retailers form the heart of the economy. So by rather raising money through Saint Valentine and then buying the needed products locally, we kill two birds with one stone: The purchase of highly needed materials for young students who can’t afford these themselves, as well as providing a boost to diverse local small retailers. This way we do not only contribute on a short, but on a long term to the future of Nigeria as well.
