Feeding The Future

Feeding the Future is an annual charity event hosted by Umu Igbo Unite - Los Angeles in South Eastern Nigeria. One of the main goals of Umu Igbo Unite Corporation is to encourage civic engagement and community service back home in Nigeria. As Nigerians, especially Igbos, we make it our priority to give back to the country that has given so much to us. This is why UIU exists, to foster a community within the diaspora that remembers its roots and thereby invests time, energy, and resources to improve the quality of life back home. It is also an opportunity for our members to experience different Igbo states while giving back.

 

UIU-LA accomplishes this every December by selecting an orphanage or motherless babies home from a different South Eastern Igbo speaking state to aid. For the 2022 project, we have selected two Imo State orphanages in dire need. We aim to provide items to take care of the children and facilities. We are raising money to donate food, kitchen appliances, fuel, toys, school supplies, clothing, and accessories for the children and orphanage staff. 

All donors will be recognized and acknowledged, and photos and videos of organization members donating to the children will be shared on the website. Donors will be recognized as the following:

🏆Gold Benefactor - $1 to $100

  • You will receive acknowledgement in a digital holiday thank you card from UIU Los Angeles to the children, volunteers and employees at the orphanages.

💠Platinum Benefactor - $100 to $500

  • You will receive acknowledgement in a digital holiday thank you card from UIU Los Angeles to the children, volunteers and employees at the orphanages.

Take A Look

Last year, we visited Agape Motherless Babies Home in Abia State. 

See footage of the 2020 project below:

Our first year kicked off December 2017 in Imo State at the Red Cross Motherless Babies Orphanage. The following year, UIU-LA members served at the Beluonwu Memorial Orphanage in Anambra State in partnership with We Are New Africa (WANA), a non-profit organization operated by celebrity stylist, Ugo Mozie. All this was made possible by our wonderful donors.
