Welcome to Igbolife Series

Welcome to Igbolife Series where ordinary Igbo folks are written into history, not written out of history. If we don’t tell our story, who will?

Immortalize our cherished memories about growing up as Igbo people for our children. Give voice to your father, mother and other loved ones by participating in our series.

Our mission is to provide the forum for Igbo people in the Diaspora to tell and document their heritage for the next generation. Our goal is to document as many aspects of Igbo life and culture through a series on Igbo relationships from an autobiographical perspective.

Check out our first project, “Igbo Mothers by Igbo Daughters,” and see for yourself. Go to future projects and invitation to see how you can become a part of the movement. Indeed, we believe that education is the key - a point well echoed by the following great thinkers:

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." -- Nelson Mandela

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically... Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.” -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The strength of a woman can carry the weight of the world.” -- Sarah Pezdek-Smith

“A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.” -- Eleanor Roosevelt

“Use of brains begets wealth." -- African proverb

Thank you for visiting our site, and come back as we keep adding informative materials and resources.
