Dr. Wamey, founder and current president of Nascent Solutions ran the organization from her home in Fairfax Station, VA, from November 2004 till April 2008 when the organization moved to its current location at 85 South Bragg Street in Alexandria.
Haunted by the images of malnourished children, street children rumaging for food in the dumpsters in Yaoundé or Douala, 70-80 children crowding in a 45 capacity classroom, Beatrice signed up for classes at the Northern Virginia Women’s small business center. After the first few hours, she drafted a mission statement which would become Nascent Solutions.
In March 2007, Nascent Solutions was registered as a Public Volunteer Organization (PVO) with the United States Agency for International Development. Nascent is currently registered with field offices in Cameroon, Uganda and Zambia. Nascent Solutions has received seven grant awards from the US Government and donations from foundations and individuals. In the last eight years, Nascent has implemented programs in food security and agriculture, health and nutrition, education and skills development and gender equality which have impacted the lives of over 10,000,000 beneficiaries.
