Our Story

Our Commitment to Abians

Unubiko Foundation, founded and led by Chief James Chijioke Ume, is a philanthropic organization dedicated to giving back to society and making a positive impact on the lives of people in Abia State and beyond. The foundation’s vision is to bridge the gap in development and other needs of the people in the areas of infrastructure, skills acquisition, digital technology, youth and women empowerment, job creation, and poverty reduction.

Our efforts encompass the attainment of various sustainable development goals (SDGs), including SDG 1 (Eradicating Poverty), SDG 4 (Ensuring Quality Education), SDG 5 (Promoting Gender Equality), SDG 8 (Encouraging Decent Work and Economic Growth), SDG 9 (Fostering Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure), and SDG 16 (Establishing Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions).

Unubiko Foundation is committed to promoting education and youth empowerment in the Atan Abam community. Our efforts include covering WAEC fees for eligible students, rebuilding Ovukwu Abam Secondary School with an N250 million fund, and organizing the #Code Camp Youth Empowerment Programme, which provided 20 youths with an online masterclass covering coding, logical thinking, mind mapping, and goal-setting. The Foundation prioritizes the provision of WASH facilities and clean drinking water to communities, dedicating significant resources to the sinking of 49 boreholes in Abam and neighbouring areas. Furthermore, the Foundation has undertaken crucial initiatives such as the rebuilding of a church and the establishment of a Women’s Development Centre, acting as a catalyst for women’s empowerment.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Unubiko Foundation exhibited its dedication to society by providing palliatives and donations to alleviate the associated hardships. These donations included 1000 bags of rice and protective equipment to communities and the Abia State government, 830 pieces of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Federal Medical Centre in Umuahia, and 100 bags of rice and 300 cartons of noodles to the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) in both Abia State and Abuja.

We are committed to continuously making significant interventions in rebuilding the judiciary, providing infrastructure, and empowering youth. Our goal is to impact as many children, youth, women, and men as possible, enabling them to become valuable members of their communities, and thus, establish a legacy of giving.
