On DFA Interview Series- Meet Chinwe Enyinna, a nurse, and the co-founder of Pamirian foundation.

Tell us about yourself?

My name is Chinwe Enyinna, I am the co-founder of Pamirian foundation. I am also a registered nurse in Nigeria and the UK, a global health advocate, writer, speaker, and philanthropist.

I collaborated to start Pamirian foundation amid the covid-19 pandemic out of the passion and dire need to contribute towards the eradication of poverty in African rural communities. The foundation was incorporated on the 11th of December 2020 by the corporate affairs commission federal republic of Nigeria.

The vision is to create a continent where African rural communities transcend inequalities and this will be achieved through empowering the less privileged in rural communities one family at a time through community outreach, quality education, vocational training, giving micro-grants, and providing indigenes with equipment for start-ups.

 

Tell us about your organization, impacts, and achievements since establishment?

The name of my organization is Pamirian foundation, the foundation was incorporated on the 11th of December 2020.

So far, we have impacted over 100 widows and orphans through our first free-feeding project in Ndibinihu Obokwu Obizi Ezinihitte Mbaise Imo state Nigeria and we are excited about the line-up of events we have in the pipeline.

 

What advice can you give to young people who want to build a career in the development sector?

The advice for young people who want to build a career in the development sector would be to follow their passion, solve a problem, and do not go into the sector just for the money.

It will be rocky especially at the start, and there are times you would want to give up, but let your “WHY” be your motivation. Remember some people are in dire need of the solution you carry. You can’t afford to disappoint them and the world needs more people like you to make it a better place for all.

 

What is the biggest challenge facing the health sector and what are your interventions so far?

The biggest challenge the health sector is facing is the lack of adequate funding to address gaps in health systems and health infrastructure and also providing support to vulnerable countries.

Pamirian foundation provides support to vulnerable countries by improving livelihood for African rural communities through empowerment.

 

What do you believe the Government can do differently?

The health sector renders basic services that are essential in combating poverty and this is often subsidized with public funds to achieve results. The government should set out credible commitments on addressing health inequalities and increase public spending to deliver care services to a high standard.

 

Tell us four shocking things you’ve experienced about being a non-profit leader?

Being a non-profit leader is not a piece of ice on the pack. One of the shocking things I have discovered is it takes more than passion to build and run a sustainable non-profit organization.

You need funds to make the type of impact you want to make.

You need the right team and support system that believes in the vision of your organization.

You also cannot serve everyone, you have to create a niche.

 

How has been your participation in the inner circle program or other programs prepared you for opportunities ahead?

The inner-circle program has been one of the best investments I made in personal development this year. It has been an insightful, educating, and enlightening experience armed with so much valuable information on how to start, scale and run a sustainable non-profit organization with great outcomes.

I have also met some wonderful people creating changes in their sector and I can’t wait to implement all I have learned from this program.

 

Are there any ongoing projects your organization is working on at the moment? Please share it with us.

Pamirian foundation is working on its 2nd and 3rd projects of placing 3 orphans on scholarship and giving micro-grants to 3 women in a rural community in Nigeria in the 3rd quarter of 2021.
