Programs & Services

Offot Ukwa Association (USA), Inc. is passionate about positively impacting, changing and shaping lives. The work we do at our Non-Profit Organization is aimed at providing a holistic approach to addressing some of our society’s pressing challenges. We will partner with and ensure that our partners are empowered by creating opportunities for individuals and communities.

Our Programs

Programs that are in keeping with our mission and vision are the most important goals of our organization. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our community in a safe and secure environment. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those we serve.



We recognize and acknowledge that our Youth will lead us into the next generation and our sustainability depends on their engagement, wisdom, skills, participation, and more! Our association will consciously provide the platform for our Youths to bring their skills to the service of those we focus on. Offot Ukwa Association provides the safe and welcoming space for our Youths and their desired programming for our growth.  



Our more seasoned community/members need skills and tools to continue growing and being of value in their works of life. Offot Ukwa Association ensures that each opportunity we have is used to provide pertinent tools for life. In the intervening months between our Convention, OUA adds presentations/seminars on health, finances and general wellbeing. We use these opportunities to share resources and discuss issues of general/mutual concerns.

We recognize that some of us are first-generation immigrants in the United States as we continue to leverage our collective resources for ways to improve our circumstances and grow. We do all these while maintaining good connection to our cultures – displaying and sharing them with appropriate richness.



As we age, we know that our culture, some of which are orally transferred should be handed down in ways that can be done to promote accessibility and continuity. Our elders serve to continue to bridge our traditions as we work together to document and leave them for the benefit of our younger generation.
