Idemili United of Atlanta, GA

We are delighted to welcome you to the Website of Idemili United of Atlanta, Georgia. Our site provides information about our organization programs and activities, leadership teams, our mission and purpose, events, and much more.

Idemili United of Atlanta, Georgia Inc. (IUA Georgia Inc.) in the United States of America started when a couple of Idemili indigenes from metro Atlanta got together and decided to start an organization to represent themselves and other Ada Ides and Ide Nnas. They hoped to identify and communicate with the many Idemili indigenes here in the U.S.; a benefit for both the members and the country as well. In September, 2010, many members from around the country gathered in Atlanta, Georgia for the formal launching of the organization. Thereafter, several meeting were held and the founding members finalized and adopted the organization's Constitution and elected the leaders to guide the organizations' early years.

Idemili United of Atlanta in Georgia invites all Idemili indigenes in the United States to become members. Please take the time to explore this site to learn more about IUA's purposes, which are apt for any Ada Ide or Ide Nna. We believe in fostering and promoting the academic excellence and interpersonal development of our members, youths, and participating in community service programs where we live and work. We respect and admire the courage of many of our youths who are diligently pursuing higher education.

The people of Idemili will value your participation, service and contribution by becoming an active member of our organization. We trust that your experience with us will yield great rewards for you and our entire Idemili towns. Please join us in our quest to create an enabling, mutually conducive environment that will spur enviable cultural and educational development and growth for all of our members and youth.

Yours in service.

Francis Osita Onukwuli, President
