Our Goals

There is a lack of exposure of authentic West African display promoting tradition and folklore that creates a global exchange. In addition, there is a lack of factual perception about the diversity of African cultures. The Nigeria Cultural Parade & Festival is a dynamic symbol that represents cultural understanding in the city of Houston. It directly provides an educational platform through a display of West African culture.

The goals for the parade is to boost sustainable development in areas of social equality, economic and community solidarity.
