The Organization Vision

The Nzuko Ndi Igbo (NNI) envisions a fuller implementation of their mission through the Igbo House Development Program. The Igbo House Development Program will provide aggressive, hands-on diversity training, as well as alternative education programs in their growing and diverse neighborhoods. This project will also help aid unemployed adults, single parents, and other community members lacking the adequate skills and educational resources needed to secure and maintain skilled jobs with which to support themselves and their families. This project will constructively assist over 50 undereducated minority residents through the new community service program. Members of NNI will serve as model outreach volunteer groups for Oregon and Southwest Washington neighborhoods. This project will partner with refugee and cultural organizations to provide 10,000 energy efficient light bulbs to serve underserved 200 homes, with each receiving 5 energy efficient light bulbs to help save money to individuals and families, and teach recipients to turn off lights and other appliances when not in use, while helping the environment and preserving our resources.
