Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch Inc

EIN: 68-0652119


To nurture a 'different' generation of African leaders via access to a new education culture at the basic and secondary school levels. Education that will focus on mindset transformation from "Me, my family and cronies" to "We The People". To turn the gaze of the students away from avarice, selfishness, and obsession with accumulation of material wealth, and prepare them for leadership that embraces living for a higher purpose. To hold biennial Leadership Academy (as funding permits) for youths with post secondary education. Our long term goal as we pray for assistance from individuals and/or entities with the financial means, is to establish a Lyceum. An institution where young Africans would spend at least one academic year to ruminate and be mentored about the resuscitation of Africa.

Primary and Secondary School Education in Africa

Our focus is on the education of the children from Kindergarten to High School in the poorest communities.
The mission of PACAW, Inc. is to provide these students with education that emphasizes, by words and by actions, the spirit of selflessness, altruism, and fidelity to the wellbeing of their nations. In this young generation of citizens lies the hope for the nations of sub-Saharan Africa.
The main purpose of PACAW, Inc. is to add a voice to the search for solutions for the huge problems facing Nigeria and the nations of sub-Saharan Africa. It is an attempt to address these very complex problems at their root.
Also, because PACAW, Inc. believes that the education crisis in Africa reflects chronic leadership failure, we have made leadership training through the PACAW, Inc. Leadership Academy a component of our programs.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
