OUR HISTORY

Giving Back to Community Corporation a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization was founded by Dr. Mrs. Emilian Emeagwali, PT, MCMT, in September 2009. She is an Onitsha woman living in the United States of America. Her inspiration for starting this organization came after she visited Nigeria after so many years of being away. Owing to the level of hunger and poverty she saw, she started up a non-profit that delivers innovative and sustainable solutions that address hunger, poverty and poor education. As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, Giving Back to Onitsha Community became Giving Back To Community, expanding our mission to include poor children and families in America and other countries. Her goal is to build a world where every child has the opportunity to live a comfortable and fulfilling life.

Discover About Onitsha Community :


The port and market city of Onitsha, located on the east bank of the Niger River in South Eastern Nigeria, is an important regional hub for trade and commerce. It's an important regional hub for trade and commerce, as well as an industrial center. Its big market is called Onitsha Main Market, and the town’s 1.4 million residents speak Igbo. Traditionally, Onitsha indigenes consist of nine villages, which operate a traditional government headed by the Obi of Onitsha and his assistants called Ndi Ichie (titled red cap elders). The city has an annual growth rate of 3.3%. During the Nigerian-Biafran war (1967–1970), Onitsha suffered greatly: its economy declined and many people died from malnutrition and illnesses. Today, this city as well as numerous other regions in Nigeria needs help to solve its own food crisis and poverty problem.

How We Do It

We are a non-profit organization strategically based in New York (the big apple), with strong ties to the Onitsha community. We feed poor children and families, offer scholarships to poor deserving children and equip sub-standard public schools in various communities. We do the following to achieve our goal.

We SEEK

Year after year, our partners in Nigeria generate a list with the names and contact details of less privileged people in the community. We prioritize children, widows, the elderly, and the disabled.

We PROVIDE

Your donations make it possible to provide for the vulnerable in the community. We achieve this by providing food packages, school fees, rent assistance, and much more.

We ENGAGE

We believe that the vulnerable are the majority stakeholders in the community and we partner with community members to undertake various activities that helps them.

We PARTNER

We heavily rely on volunteers to cut out administrative expenses. That way, majority of donations go directly to those in need. This strategy works best when we partner with all stakeholders.

MISSION:

Our mission is to eliminate starvation caused by extreme poverty and build a world where every child has the opportunity to live a comfortable and fulfilling life.
Our organization uses your donations on the following causes:
• Feeding poor children, families, and homeless individuals.
• Education to reduce the rate of illiteracy.
• Improving the quality and standard of schools in low-income communities.
• Awarding scholarships to poor deserving individuals to support their higher educational goals.

Vision:

We envision a society where no child lives in poverty, nobody goes to bed hungry, and all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Poor children lag behind their peers because they lack access to a high quality of education.
Protecting children against the lifelong consequences of poverty will improve their lives and reduce child poverty in future generations. We cannot afford to wait, the future of our children and society depends on us. We need you to support our cause and help us with your donations; the greatest good is what we do for one another.
