One of the key objectives of the NWALOTA Project is to provide African Americans with the
opportunity to meet and interact with the custodians of Nigerian culture, such as the Kings and Chiefs. These encounters allow for a deeper understanding and appreciation of Nigerian traditions and customs. Additionally, the project offers African Americans the possibility of obtaining land for business purposes, facilitating economic empowerment and investment opportunities.

As part of the NWALOTA Project, participants who have undergone a DNA ancestry testing that confirms their Nigerian heritage( though not mandatory) are given the chance to adopt African names, further strengthening their connection to their roots. The project also includes a specific cultural program, such as the R.O.C Drumming Festival. This festival is dedicated to reminding males of their responsibility towards their communities, bringing them together through the power of rhythm and music to promote unity, cultural exchange, and community engagement. This festival will be held in Abuja Nigeria on October 12, 2024.
