Community Support Programs
Ember Spices is named after my mother, Ember, whose name in the Tiv language means "to rejoice." Her unyielding spirit and warmth have inspired us to spread joy and give back to those in need.
Through Ember's Dream, we donate generously to support disadvantaged children and youth, identifying individuals and groups who can benefit most from our help.
We are grateful for your support through your purchases of our products. You are helping us make a difference and honor my mother's legacy of joy and giving. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Women's Literacy Project
According to the World Bank, Nigeria's literacy rate stands at about 62.2 percent. For women, this rate currently stands at about 53 percent. In conjunction with Kay-Zen Research Consultants, we partner with women in the Tudun Wada Community to provide access to learning materials, adult learning classes, and mentoring opportunities.
Farmers Seed Project
Over the past few years, flooding and insecurity have affected farmers' livelihood across Benue State, Nigeria. Through your purchases and collaborating with a farmers association, Ember Spices is helping to distribute seeds and seedlings to help farmers get back on their feet.
Skills Acquisition Project
In the Nigerian Economy, self-employment is one of the core pillars that keeps the economy thriving. However, several college-educated and non-college-educated people cannot find white-collar jobs, thus looking to skills acquisition that has the potential of becoming a profitable business. Through your purchases and in partnership with Kay-Zen Research Consultants, we are providing skills acquisition training in the area of shoe making, soap-making, and sewing.
