Nkemnji Achenjang Foundation (NAF) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that functions as a vital safety net for less fortunate individuals and families. The foundation was created in honor of the late Mbe Nkemnji Achenjang. He was a philanthropist and remained a selfless individual desiring to help those in need throughout his life. NAF has been established to continue that legacy of caring and charitable works.
Pa Nkemnji Achenjang was born in 1919 into the family of Mbe Nkemnji Fonjia and O’Belanka Nkemnji in Fontem, Cameroon, West Africa. Pa Nkemnji was married in 1945 to Agnes Efuet and migrated to work for the Cameroon Development Corporation, CDC. His father, Mbe Nkemnji Fonjia died August 18th, 1970. Pa Nkemnji Achenjang succeeded his father in December 1971 and became Mbe Nkemnji Achenjang. Throughout his life, Mbe Nkemnji Achenjang showed others how to live, love and give. He provided hope to everyone he came across with his simple, pleasant, and generous nature. On January 30th, 2005, Mbe Nkemnji Achenjang was called home to be with the Lord and although he is no longer with us, his legacy of love and generosity continues through NAF.
Mbe Nkemnji Achenjang always submitted his difficulties, perplexities, and disappointments to the Lord and was never embittered nor surprised at the challenges that came to test him. He remained a symbol of peace and hospitality beyond measure; all smiles and humorous. Mbe Nkemnji Achenjang was a rare gem and his load on this earth never broke him down because of the way he carried it. We are inspired by his examples to rise above challenges.
” Your father in his old age, do not grieve him during his life. Even if his mind should fail, show him sympathy, do not despise him in your health and strength; for kindness to a father shall not be forgotten but will serve as reparation for your sins… Ecclesiasticus (Sirach) 3:1-7, 12-14. “

We all have limitations, blind spots, fears, pains, and brokenness. Mbe Nkemnji Achenjang worked tirelessly to carry the Spirit of Christ in his heart. He reached out to those who could be considered to be on the margins or judged by society.
