I am officially a member of the village of Issele-Uku. I am also a new member of the Issele -Uku Association of North America. I want to help my people to live and be healthy and have an improved standard of living. They are now becoming empowered to help themselves. My dream is becoming reality, little by little.
Ethics will be taught as part of the curriculum at the school and as part of the afterschool and adult literacy programs.
The "Brain drain" is a problem in the area. Hopefully, a Holistic approach to the problem will help to begin work on the problem.

-We believe in intercultural exchange.
-We believe that the exchange is equal to what we are willing to share with each others.
-We understand that if anyone is suffering, we all suffer.
Proverty and ignorance are our enemy.
