Our Story

We are an entire community – individuals, families, churches, city/local government, civic organizations, coming together to solve and serve the poor as God calls us.

ABC was originally started by current Executive Director, Charles Kodua-Nyamekye. From a humble country-side background in Africa, Charles has experiential knowledge of abject poverty, hunger and child labor. However, the opportunity to form a nonprofit, according to Charles, was during United Nations studies at LIU-Brooklyn. ABC was therefore registered in September, 2018, and has since grown in programs and personnel.

Mission, Vision & Values

These are our building blocks, and the reason we exist. They drive our core programming offer, shape our outreach and are recognizable in the very fabric of the building and spaces we are transforming.


To eradicate poverty by overcoming the injustice and inequity that cause it. In so doing, we help the disabled, deprived and disadvantaged people live richer and meaningful lives.

Above all, serving as a hub for exchange of ideas around culture, business, and policy related to the continent, and in the spirit of collaboration and engagement with individuals and institutions who share our values, ABC inspires enthusiasm, advances thought and action around Africa’s global influence and impact on our collective and shared futures.


We envision a world without poverty in which every person can blossom in his or her God-given potential and exercise his or her right to a life of dignity.


To achieve this mission of the organization and all its members, officers and/or employees, shall be governed by the following core values:

Recognizing the innate dignity and worth of all people and the value of diversity.
