Umu Igbo Unite

UIUCares is the community service arm of UIU and we are excited to contribute practically to several problems facing our people. We strive to provide support to Igbos back home and Igbos in the diaspora. We aim to do that by focusing on these 5 areas:


We aim to provide opportunities for people to make a living, support themselves, and contribute positively to the society. 


 Our chapters participate in various programs to improve health knowledge and make it more accessible.


We support several orphanages in Igboland. Our chapters have developed relationships with several motherless homes in Nigeria.


We strive to increase accessibility to education and encourage our members to participate in education programs in their communities.


Our chapters are involved in a host of different service projects in the United States and Nigeria.
