Worldwide Organization for Women
In October 2005, the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation donated funds to help with construction for a clean water supply system for a village in Nigeria as well as the building of a bridge over the Eze River, which connected Enugwu village to the larger community of Ozubulu. About 30 years ago, the village of Enugwu in Nigeria was separated from the world when the original bridge over the Eze River was destroyed. Consequently, the people of the village were completely isolated from the world. This bridge will allow easier transportation for the villagers to the city for school, shopping and work.
